1

Never underestimate the freedom of being single. Enjoy yourself always and be patient.

Weed out the negatives. Love yourself, and every time you find a perceived flaw in yourself, improve yourself.

3

Visitation Rights and Schedule: Focus on how you can become the best parent possible.

4

SINGLE: Set up a support system: All single parents need help whether it is someone to watch the kids while you run out to do errands.

5

Do not Criticize Your Ex. If you are a single dad due to divorce, do not criticize your ex. Children are vulnerable and naive.

6

Make sure that your child gets the help and support he needs to deal with difficult emotions.

7

Try to Remain Calm in Challenging Circumstances: Speak with friends or family members on a regular basis.

8

Being single gives you time to be by yourself, with yourself. If you do not let go of the past, you will never appreciate the present.

9

Indulging in such activities will strengthen your bond and take your Childs mind off the fact that the mother is not in the picture.

10

You are not alone when you are single; you still have family and good friends.

11

Something better will come your way if you are open to it. You will know happiness in the future and in the present, if you are open to it.

12

Cut off ties with your ex. When you two broke up, it likely happened for a reason.

13

Remind yourself that you cannot control how others act. The only thing you can control is your own actions and responses.

14

Never go looking for your old relationship in a new one, and do not go looking for your ex qualities in your present lover.

15

Do not criticize the gender of the other parent as well. Since the child lives with you, do not criticize his or her mother in general.

16

You cannot force the other parent to take out time for the child. Those are the other parents issues and not yours.

17

If your child has other caregivers, talk to them about how you expect your child to be disciplined.

18

Do not believe you are flawed or negatively different if you do not have a partner.

19

Answer questions honestly: Inevitably, questions will come up about the changes in your family, or about the absence of one parent.

20

Expect a few pitfalls. Life is not always perfect, and most of us have to kiss a few frogs before meeting the perfect lover.
