My secrets to an awesome single mom life



Every day I hear from a mom who is facing single motherhood– either she is considering divorce, found out she is pregnant but not in a relationship, or is barreling down the road to single motherhood by some other force. Others have been at this game for a while and could use some support.

I hear questions like:

How do will I make ends meet?!

I am so worried my kids will have a rotten childhood – what can I do?! 

How will I ever have the career of my dreams now?! 

Will I be broke forever?!

How do you get through the day!? 

Will I ever find love again?! What about SEX?!

How can I get some alone time?!

Exercise? What’s that?! 

I’d LOVE to find time with some friends, but, well … how?! 

I can’t get over the idea that my life is gone to suck from now on. I can hardly get out of bed. Help?

These questions both warm and break my heart. The warm my heart because they are so familiar – I have felt and said each and every one of these things — as has every other single mom. In that common experience I find so much comfort.

I also weep a little each time I get one of these emails or Facebook messages. Again, these feelings of overwhelm and despair are so painfully familiar.

The good news is that you are normal. More good news: You’re not alone. Even MORE good news?! You not only will get through this moment, but you will thrive on the other side.

In this FREE 5-page guide I give you my 15-point manifesto for not just getting through your day, and not just surviving single parenthood. This is the beginning of an awesome life you will create for your family and yourself.

  1. As a man my primary advice…and believe me it’s worth it……Wait for it…..Waittttt fffffoooooooor iiiiittttttt……

    If you have sons let them get tons of exposure to their father, or other trustworthy male familial and friend figures if you chose to have children with a deadbeat (and I mean a real “deadbeat”, not the picture you try to paint about your male ex simply because you two couldn’t keep your relationship together.) Boys need exposure to male role models to learn to be men. Boys are not little girls with testicles, and a single mom can never fill that masculine role.

    Similar could be said for your daughters, especially if their dad is overall a decent fellow (look past your own bias as the ex, which I’m sure can be difficult), but true masculine role models are important for sons.

    Hopefully that masculine influence will make it easier for you single moms as the kids, especially your sons, reach their teenage years and adulthood. And if you can get some “me” time as the kids enjoy time with their dad, or that male role model, then enjoy the side benefit for you!

    Is there some kinda prize if your the first person to post a comment? Or just this good feeling in my heart that I was able to impart more male wisdom? :)

    1. As the only parent to a young son, I don’t exactly have “trustworthy male familial and friend figures” coming out of the woodwork who can come take my son while I get this “me” time you refer to.

      1. Can we brainstorm ways for you to find them? Connect with other single (or otherwise) moms in your community? What about an older person who perhaps doesn’t have grandchildren, or whose grandkids live far away? A church or community group? How can you create the support system you need?

  2. This is good advice … kinda tough to hear for some single moms who feel pressure to be everything to their kids, and have to face that they cannot. Also liberating to simply accept that you are one person, one gender, and humans need more than that. And that is ok!

  3. It’s hard to find your website in google. I found it on 15 spot,

  4. I like Darth’s comment. My son did Cub Scouts from the time he was 6, and I think that’s been helpful. His dad has been around (we separated when our son was 8), but I still think it helps to have multiple male role models. (Especially ones who don’t withdraw socially or act out in anger like his dad…) The Cub Scout troop in our area is tolerant, well-organized, and mom-friendly, so it was a great experience for me as well.

  5. I like the blog. Well done.
