1

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

2

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

3

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

4

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

5

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

6

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.

7

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.

8

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

9

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

10

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.

11

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

12

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

13

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.

14

Weed out the negatives. Hiding yourself from the world would not fix or change anything.

15

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

16

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

17

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

18

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

19

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.

20

Open yourself to the world. Enjoy the little things. You only have a few hours of today before it turns into yesterday.
