Whether single parenting was your choice or not, you may wonder if you and your children will make it through. Being parents in our challenging world today is not easy and being a single parent does not have to be difficult. It is definitely possible to raise your children without the negative effects associated with being brought up in a single parent home. When you are open to learning new skills, you will find that life as a single parent has opportunities and benefits that you never imagined for you and your children.
Parenting children today is a challenge. Never has there been so much stress on the family. Never have so many children spent so much of their lives in day care. Never have there been so many potential negative influences that seem beyond parental control.
All parents want to raise happy, cooperative, responsible children. All parents want the best for their children. Parents need a reliable parenting style like our positive single parenting class which uses Positive Discipline. When you consistently implement a positive, democratic, non-punitive parenting approach, you can expect big changes in your family. It takes time to practice and incorporate new skills. Whether you are looking for parenting classes for single mothers or fathers, taking our online parenting class will support you while making those changes.
In the past, the idea of a healthy, happy single-parent family seemed unattainable. Although, now as we see more single parent families, there is perhaps more acceptance of that type of ‘family unit’. However, the concerns and fears about how to create a happy, healthy family with only one parent still exist.
And, it’s not only single moms that have custody of their children, so do dads. If you think we only have single mom parenting classes think again! Since single fathers have become more common as well, and so have parenting classes for single fathers.
If you ask a single parent what it’s like to parent solo, the expectation is that you will hear a multitude of negative emotional reactions and concerns. To be sure, two parents parenting together is considered to be the best way to raise children. However, we believe when circumstances arise making that impossible, it’s important to provide single parenting education and single parenting help to answer questions like…
“I find myself a single parent what do I do now?”
“How in the world do I take on the challenge of raising my children alone, doing a job that was meant for two people?”
Even if you choose to parent alone, taking on a job meant for two can be challenging, confusing, frustrating and raise questions about the ability to parent effectively. On the other hand, it can be a time of growth in self-confidence and new beginnings as you face problems head on and seek out ways to meet the situation successfully. If you are not a single parent by choice, but through divorce or death, being the best parent you can be while working through grief, anger and pain may seem impossible. Depending on how you became a single parent and how old your children are, starting a journey of solo parenting can negatively impact even the most optimistic and confident person. Many emotional feelings that you are having will be shared by your children. Helping everyone work through them is possible so the family can thrive. And, with our online single parenting help class you can get there.
Common questions arise that can cause anxiety and concern going forward.
“Can I find a way to be happy and good at being a single parent?”
“Is growing up in a single parent family going to hurt my children?”
“Will they have trouble being in stable relationships as adults?”
“Is it even doable to meet all the needs of my children and ensure they reach adulthood happy, responsible and loving?”
So, finding a class on single parenting that works is really important.
On the up side of the solo parenting journey…you may soon realize that your home is more stable, less volatile. You will find you have capabilities and strengths you didn’t know you possessed. You find you can learn new skills and enjoy that you don’t have someone second guessing your decisions. Without constant conflict, you may enjoy being with your children more, and most important you will see that it is indeed possible to create a happy, positive family atmosphere in which you and your children grow and prosper.
While you heal and find new aspects of yourself, you become a positive role model for your children. Children raised by a single parent parenting, have the opportunity to make a big contributions to the family, increasing self-esteem and promoting resilience.
While we realize that there are several ways that people become single parents, divorce is the most common. The purpose of this information is to provide Positive Discipline for single parents so you have the tools and parenting style you need to raise successful, responsible, cooperative, loving children and love yourself in the process. We provide encouragement and an approach that helps focus your energy in a positive direction. It won’t always be smooth sailing because real life isn’t like that.
Let’s take on some of the misguided beliefs about raising children in a single parent home.
Research shows that many successful people have been raised in single parent homes. It also points to the fact that good parenting skills can compensate for a lot of the stress and problems encountered in raising children alone. Parenting alone doesn’t mean you are assuring your children will have problems in the future. If you are willing to invest time and energy in a positive single parenting approach which is non-punitive, based on encouragement and not bribery or punishment, your children will not suffer any more disadvantage than kids raised in a two parent family.
Often the negative predictions for children of single parents are based on economics. Going from a two parent home to a solo one can cause financial hardships. Now, there may be considerable stress on the one parenting alone. And, while there may not be any quick solutions to your economic situation, implementing Positive Discipline Parenting Skills will go a long way in helping you solve difficult problems while teaching your children that who they are becoming is more important than what they have.
Concerned about the future for your children? Do you wonder if they will be able to have and sustain fulfilling relationships? Research tells us that almost as many children from single parent homes as those from two parent families are happily married.
It may be daunting to face our complex world and do a job that was meant for two people. Solo parenting raises doubt and even guilt which may inhibit the joy of parenting your children. Yet you can succeed and even thrive as a single parent.
Single parenting classes can provide a road map for this new territory you find yourself in and and we give you our best map in our Stressless Single Parenting Online Class.
Children take cues from their parents and other adults around them. If you are constantly complaining or commenting on the difficulties you had, it can contribute to a negative point of view about relationships for your children. So, healing yourself as you navigate being a single parent is one of the best gifts you can give your children and yourself.
Our parenting classes for single parents will help you see how you can use problems that arise to teach your children how to face upsetting situations with confidence.
Instead of looking for blame, our classes focus on solutions. They are based on kind and firm parenting not corporal punishment or bribes. Positive parenting is, an excellent model for all families.
Remember it is not what happens that determines your future but how you deal with it…and that is up to you…
