Single Moms: Finding Time for Yourself
- Play dates can be a great way to relax with other moms while the kids play together. Find a group of moms in your area who can get together on weekends or evenings for some conversation and fun.
Managing Your Feelings
Many single moms feel guilty when they take some time away from the kids. This is especially true when you're going out of the house and leaving the kids with a sitter.
Guilt is such an integral part of being a mother in our society; it can be incredibly hard to let it go. You need to try to move past guilt, though, if you want to live a full life and be the best mother to your kids that you can.
When you take time for yourself, you're working on who you are as a person, and the results will naturally benefit your children.
