Single parent meet single dating
Imagine if you spent most of your time looking after a child – you’d want to let your hair down too.
Many single mothers (though not all) feel they have lost their sensuality and are not attractive to men anymore.
You might worry about the lack of a male or female parental role model for your child, too.
By showing your child love and respect, talking honestly and staying positive, you can lessen your stress and help your child thrive.
Listen to your child's feelings and try to answer his or her questions honestly — avoiding unnecessary details or negativity about the other parent.
Remind your child that he or she did nothing to cause the divorce or separation and that you'll always love him or her.
Give them time to get to know each other, and be clear that the new partner isn't trying to replace the other parent.
If your child's other parent isn't involved in his or her life, you might worry about the lack of a male or female parental role model in your child's life.
