Relationship Lessons for Teens and Young Adults
Teens and young adults face many challenges in learning life´s relationship lessons. How can we, as parents, assist them in this process?
The Ideal Parent
Is there such a thing as an "ideal parent?" Are there traits to which we can aspire? What is "ideal" to one may be deficient to another. How can we be the best parent we can be?
The Always-Fallible Parent
The opposite of the infallible parent, the always-fallible parent finds a way to blame themselves for everything that happens in the life of their child. Why do they do this? And how can they break the cycle?
The Infallible Parent
Infallible parents believe that they must always be right. This does not necessarily mean that they believe that they ARE always right, just that they have the expectation of themselves that they should always be right. Do you fit into this category?
Infallible vs. Always-Fallible Parents
Parenting is never easy, but single parents have the added pressure of being the only parent. Sometimes that pressure is not dealt with easily and it results in parents who believe that they either must be infallible or are always-fallible. How can we avoid these tendencies?
Reclaiming Our Passions
We all gave up dreams and endeavors to become parents - even moreso when we became single parents. Denying ourselves does little to enhance the lives of ourselves or our children. Reclaiming some of those dreams might be the answer you are seeking and an inspiration to your children as well.
Time-Saving Meal Plan
Most parents, especially single parents, are all too aware of the value of time. This article is one suggestion turning one meal into three and saving time that can be better spent while still providing a healthy meal for your children.
New Choices in the New Year
While I am not a fan of resolutions, I do believe in making choices to improve our lives. As a single parent, I believe this is even more important - for ourselves and our children.
Changes Needed in Child Support Enforcement System
There are many issues dealt with by custodial and noncustodial parents in the current child support system, which is currently housed within the individual states. Would making child support enforcement a federal rather than a state responsiblity make the process more efficient and effective?
Political Correctness and Child-Raising
Does political correctness have a place in child-raising? Should we depend upon the powers that be to tell us what is and is not appropriate for our children? Some decisions recently handed down are questionable. We should more readily rely on our own judgment.
