There is no easy path to become a successful single parent; however, you should keep your calm by finding an outlet for emotions, commit to get ready for future events and Set Clear Goals for both Short and Long Term!
I decided to share the “rules” I consider that all single parents need to know to make single parenting easier:
RULE 1: Be yourself! nothing more is required.You do not have to be a super-single parent, hero warrior or champion…just you.The loving parent that your kids want and deserve to have!
RULE 2 : Foster bond and connection for you and your children
RULE #3 Life goes on! Foster confidence, Individually and as a new family unit# nopowerless #succeed #unit #singleparentpower
RULE #4 Make emotional recovery individually and together to move forward. It is a priority! your emotions are real and should not be denied!
RULE #5 BE ENGAGED
Embrace your new status as a new family and be involved #qualitytime #newfamily #newlife #makingsingleparentingEASIER
RULE 6 embrace the new, discovering it together ALWAYS ACCESSIBLE AND AVAILABLE
RULE #7 Sometimes revisit and rethink about what you are doing as a single parent – rethink about the way how you are becoming disciplined, cool off and use good judgment
RULE #8 Recharge your own energies and load your batteries, take time and space for yourself to better help and support others
RULE #9 Respecting each others being, preferences, sharing and socializing with others are all important lessons to learn with the family and at home to get prepared better for life.
RULE #10 : Make the most of every opportunity to show your family that you love, care, support and champion on their best interests.
For me these rules mean: EMPOWER and be the champion of your life! What do you think? How many people say YES?
