Single Parenting Is Difficult But It Teaches Children Invaluable Lessons


A 2019-’20 UN Women report titled Progress of the World’s Women states that about 4.5 per cent of Indian households are run by single mothers. This is close to 13 million households in the country. But, to be a solo parent and raise a child – a accountable one at that – is never easy. ‘Double parents’ – that’s a term many parents raising children alone identify with. Single-parent families are also very close-knit. Relationships are more knotted. The children know their charities to the family really count and are valuable. This helps raise their sense of self-esteem and self-worth.

Single moms are also often the sole workers, and kids witness this first hand, so they understand how funds are chosen and learn to never overspend on unnecessary things. Single parenting comes with its own set of pros and cons.

While it’s difficult and overwhelming for the parent and children alike, it also instills the ability to multitask and the value of self-reliance in the children. Still, it is good for you and your child to stay in touch with other people; it helps you feel connected to others and develop trust.
