Look your best, dress your best, and feel your best. You never know when you may bump into your dream guy.

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

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

4

Maintain a daily routine: A consistent routine will help your child feel more secure and help you feel more organized.

5

Look for the right guy, but do not put your life on hold while trying to find him.

6

Even if you are single, you still have so much to appreciate. Being single is not the end of the world.

7

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.

8

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

9

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

10

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

11

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

12

Reach Out To Other Single Parents If you are feeling alone and overwhelmed, chances are there are other people in your community feeling the same way.

13

Have fun with your child and spend quality time together. Make a trip to the science centre, take a walk in the park or go watch a movie.

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

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

17

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.

18

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

19

Make plans for the evening. Take a weekly creative art class, make a dinner plan, attend a community event or go to yoga.

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