What would make a difference in your life as a single parent?

Hello Single Parents,
SPARC (Atlanta, GA) and Conchetta House (Olympia, Washington) are working on a project to benefit single parents across the nation. One aspect of the project is to make recommendations for programs and policy improvements that will improve our lives and that of our children. Here is where we need your help.
Think of the policies that affect your lives and that of your children. Examples, child care, child care assistance, access to education, family leave, sick/personal leave, flextime at work, small business opportunities, chiid support/visitation, anything at all. If you can think of a way to improve these policies or make them more effective, please let us know. We intend to compile all of them and present them to the appropriate parties. Your voice WILL be heard!
We want to hear from everyone so feel free to post your thoughts.
We appreciate your support!

What would make a difference in your life as a single parent?

  • Even when single parenting was the only choice because of circumstances beyond your control – you can find peace and contentment with your personal situation. Finding yourself and who you are – who you are meant to be is a journey that you can experience by making the most of your life and taking care of your children. Realizing they are a priority as well as a blessing even during the hard times following divorce is key. Check out my blog site for more of my thoughts on personal development as a single parent.

  • I want people to understand that Single Parenting is a LIFESTYLE choice for some of us, just like being GAY,LESBIAN, STRAIGHT or MARRIED is a lifestyle choice for others. Some of us choose to spend every moment with our kids (not everyone gets this opportunity so I do not want to take advantage of the time) than to have to MAKE time for them because we have to make time for someone else (a spouse, a lover, etc) too.

    There are those who say that I am lonely. LOL… this couldn’t be farther from the truth. I am never lonely, because I can go on a date at anytime and with anyone… I have the freedom to choose and be happy than to be happy now and years down the line it dwindles and I’m asking where did my happiness go… or i’m locked down in a loveless marriage and I’m only staying for the kids… I’m extremely happy… some people will see this as rambling and off topic, but this is coming from the heart of a HAPPY SINGLE PARENT!
