In the 21st century, single parenting continues to grow as a dominant parenting style in the United States. But that does not make the task any easier! One parent must juggle multiple roles in the family . . . alone.

- positive one-minute strategies for maintaining balance between the needs of a child and oneself

- abandonment by a parent
- and parenting for the future.

With all of your priorities in order, a sense of confidence about your single parenting skills, lots of positive strategies, and the expectation of positive results, you will have the reward of happy, healthy, successful children.
