Single parenting arises when a mother or father takes on the sole responsibility of a child’s upbringing. Single parenthood can result from divorce, the loss of a spouse, or having a child out of wedlock.
Single parents often encounter more difficulties because they receive less support from the other parent. However, the good news is that seven strategies can help single-parent homes raise children with positive outcomes.
One of the most important things was that these parents made a conscious decision to prioritize a positive relationship with their children. Parents prioritize emotional support, daily routine, and quality time together before their own needs.
Instead of imposing strict rules, these parents encouraged good behavior through a democratic parenting style. This approach was particularly effective in fostering child development and mental health, earning the respect and trust of their children.
