Becoming a parent changes a person’s life. Everything from your morning to the night schedule is changed. A lot of efforts and adjustments are to be made to raise the child. Things get even more challenging when you are the only parent of your child.
There can be various reasons as to why a parent is single. It can be due to the death of a spouse, divorce, or maybe you chose to raise your child independently.
I have personally faced such a situation and came out victorious.
The untimely demise of my husband changed my life completely.
With two young daughters, and a family business to handle, court cases to fight, and crores of loans to be repaid, I did not lose confidence even once.
Amidst all these financial, family, and business traumas when everything looked against me, to raise two daughters single-handedly was a big challenge.
I gathered her courage, and with a wide-smile took all the challenges of life. Not only did I take my family business to new heights, but also raised my daughters gracefully.
My daughters today are excellent in all fields of life from academics, to sports, to dance, and to writing books at a very young age.
Challenges of being a single parent
Single parenthood sometimes gets very hard to manage. Even if you are alone, you try your best so that the child does not feel a void in the family. You give your best to raise the child right.
You cannot get tired and say, “I am not feeling well, will you be able to take care of the child?” to your partner. Everything is on you, and we know it is hard.
Even after years of giving your best efforts to the job of parenthood, sometimes the child does not turn out to be the person you wanted them to be. Sometimes as the child grows, he or she feels the absence of one parent. Kids even start questioning why their family is incomplete.
The stress of single parenting can sometimes get in the way of your health. It can lead you to anxiety, hypertension, and other such health issues. Furthermore, you might face instances in life where you will feel like everything is going out of your hands. You might think to yourself that you are not a good parent or that you are unable to take good care of your child.
