Being a single parent can be really though, so we would like to give you a hand for those hard times when you feel like no one can understand you nor can really help. We have some good tips for you, to go through those lonely and difficult times or simply to make sure you are giving importance to the right things.
Firstly, don’t forget to take care of yourself. Self-care in the early days of parenting is as important as taking care of your kid. Make sure you’re sleeping as much as it’s possible, that you are eating enough, that you are physically and mentally healthy. If you manage to exercise too, that would be awesome!
Depend on others and not only on yourself. Hang out with other parents, reach out, ask for help, ask questions, don’t be proud. Finding other parents in similar situations can be a lifesaver. You can also consider joining a single parent support group. There are plenty of communities that can be extremely helpful if you are having troubles or only if you want to talk to others. Just build a community around you, don’t isolate.
