Single Parent Holiday Survival Guide

Holidays do not have to be filled with despair and loneliness. With a little effort, and a positive attitude, the peace and joy of this season can be yours.

Family Night

“Back in the day” there was no such thing as “Family Night” because just about every night was family night. Before electricity became the norm, families gathered around the table in the evening by candlelight. After television was invented, families began to gather around the one television set they owned in the evenings to watch shows together. Now that technology has granted us access to just about everything, we now find access to our families to be a challenge.

Baby Fat?

Obesity tends to be in the eye of the beholder and many parents are reluctant to behold that their children are in fact, overweight. Are you seeing your child clearly?

Single Parent Hero: Warrick Dunn

Twelve years of helping single parents secure first time homeownership! The Warrick Dunn Foundation strives to help those who are helping themselves. I learned a long time ago that you cannot be all things to all people. However, each of us can do our part to help in some small way to make our community a better place to live. As a result of growing up in a single-parent household, I have focused my charitable efforts on helping single parent families obtain first-time homeownership. I believe that homeownership is the foundation for establishing a stable and productive family environment, an environment in which children can thrive educationally, socially and economically.  (http://www.warrickdunnfoundation.org/home.php)

Warrick Dunn is  a lot of things to a lot of people. To some, he is the Running Back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. To others, he is the Founder of the Warrick Dunn Foundation. To still others, he is the oldest of the six children of a single mother who achieved greatness despite the odds. To single parents, he is a champion and keeper of dreams. 

We will be interviewing Warrick Dunn on the SingleParent411 BlogTalk Radio Show on August 7, 2009 at 11 a.m. EST.

HAVING IT ALL…Without Losing Everything

I always hear people talking about having it all…the perfect job…perfect family…perfect life, etc. But, what about the rest of us? Some of us don’t WANT to have it all. We’re forced by circumstances and life choices that we’ve made or others have made to DO it all. So we don’t even have the luxury of considering whether or not we want it all. We’ve GOT it all and now we’re trying to figure out what to do with it. That makes the real question – How do you have it all without sacrificing anything?
