There are more than 10 million single mother households in the United States with as many as 16 million children being raised currently by mothers without a spouse. For every mother recently finding herself single or just learning how to raise a child for the first time, there are countless things that need to be dealt with and innumerable things that can be that much harder without the helping hand of a second parent nearby to take on many of the regular tasks that parenthood entails. This book was written for every single mother who is learning for the first time how to raise their child without the assistant of a second parent. You will learn the various ways your situation is both different and the same depending on how you came to be a single mother – whether it was out of marriage, through divorce, or by death. You will learn what you must expect right away and what hardships are truthful and which ones will only make your path harder by acknowledging. You will learn what to do when pregnant alone and how to rely on your family. You will learn the basics of early childcare and how much you can realistically expect to accomplish as a mother on her own. You will learn the basics of what a child needs in its first year, from breastfeeding and diapers to clothing and travel. You will learn how to prepare yourself for the sacrifice you will be forced to make and how to handle money matters while raising a child alone. Multiple interviews have been conducted with single mothers who have succeeded and experts in child care and child raising to provide a comprehensive outlook on everything you can expect as a single parent on your own – from the first few weeks of stress to the later years of toilet training, proper diet, allergies, health care, and learning to talk. You will learn what to expect as your child grows, including the early years of school to the first times you must discuss their lack of a father. You will learn when you can fill in for that father figure and when you cannot and what you can do to provide the influences and support they need in those formative years. You will learn what to look out for when your child reaches the problematic teenage years and how to raise a boy as a single mother – from the conversations you shouldn’t have to have to the situations you don’t want to deal with. From conception to graduation, the life of a single mother is a trying, challenging road to travel – with this book in hand you will have what you need to get started and know what you will be able to expect.
