Surviving and Thriving

This is my very first post. I’m starting this blog because as a single parent and sole provider, I’ve found very little information that pertains to my niche.  It seems like a lot of content is aimed at the SAHM and two parent households.  Unfortunately, there are those of us that don’t fit in that mold and don’t have many options that come with a two parent or co-parenting situation.  One of the largest shifts in family structure is this: 34% of children today are living with an unmarried parent—up from just 9% in 1960, and 19%in 1980. In most cases, these unmarried parents are single. However, a small share of all children—4%—are living with two cohabiting parents (pewresearch.org 2014). That being said, I think there are a significant number of us that fit into this “sole parent” mold.  And if you don’t, you can still benefit from some of the wisdom I’ve come across.  If I can even help one person in any way, then it was worth it to begin this blogging journey.
