How to Be a Better Single Mom

How to Be a Better Single Mom

How to be a better single mom? The first thing that I see is that as moms, we are all the same. We all have children. And we are in charge of giving them everything they need to help them grow into young adults. There should be no boundaries where a mom has decided not to do something for her child. Because she is single or a single mom. Now, I am not saying that we should do everything for our children. Because sometimes they have to learn through experience. Whether it will be good or bad. But there are some things that, no matter what, you, the mom, need to do!

The First Thing That I See Is That as Moms, We Are All the Same

There are some days when I am out doing my work as a hospice nurse. And I do not have time for lunch or even a snack. Because there are too many people looking for someone to listen to them. And help them find comfort when they are going through a rough time. As a single mom, it is hard to find someone to help you with your children when you are at work. But there has to be someone who will take care of your child. Or children while doing what you need to do. If not, we, the moms, have to look inside ourselves. And see if we can do more with fewer days in the week to make ends meet.

There Is No Set Amount of Things That a Mom Should Be Doing for Her Children

If we take responsibility for ourselves and see our needs, it will help us find out. How lucky we are to have children who want to grow up become someone special. Some women have children who do not want to be a part of anything they do, and those moms need to find out why? There could be many reasons for it. But as far as being single or a single mom, we still need to show our children love. And the most important part is that you will always be there for them when they look into your eyes. And need you.

One Thing That I Have Told My Children Is That They Are Number One in My Life

No matter what happens, I will be there for them always. Now, it takes some time or a few things. But if we remember why we did what we did before our children were conceived, it will not be that hard to find a way to make our children stay that they are the most important thing in our lives.

When My Children Were Very Young, I Remember Saying That if They Wanted Something, They Had to Work for It

There is no such thing as having everything handed to you except for love from your mom and dad! Of course, I am not saying that we should not buy our children gifts from time to time. But there is no need to give them everything they want without them working for it.

When my daughter was younger, she wanted a pair of Reebok sneakers. And unless you work hard for something. Do not expect your momma to give you one! The only time I allowed my children to stay up late was when they were doing their homework. Or wanted to work on their art, and it had to be done before bedtime.

I Am Not Saying That You Should Treat Your Own Child

But maybe this will help you find a way to make them want things because they want to work for them. It is not only a single mom thing, and it is a life lesson that everyone should learn. When you are given something that someone else has worked for, there will always be a point in your life where you will have to earn your own way through hard work. And this time as a child with the help of their mom. Who will help them in the future when work and school are getting hard.

More Than Anything Else, Do Not Be Afraid to Tell Your Children That You Love Them Either

For a single working mom, it is hard sometimes to find time to make phone calls home. But even if it is at the end of their bedtime or during their lunch break, a short phone call that says “I love you” will make them feel special and loved.

When Your Children Are Young, It Is Their Time to Have Fun and Let Go of All the Things in Life

But as they get older, it is our job to be there for them. And show them how important family is and why we do what we do. It is not always about money or anything else in the world to make us happy, but it is our children that should be our number one priority because they are what we have left when everything else has been taken away from us.
