So, this isn't at all what you had in mind, or where you thought you'd end up . . . as a single parent, raising kids on your own - at least some of the time. You're battling the day-to-day grind, making life-defining decisions while helping with homework, shoelaces and Book Week costumes, all the while working and maybe even having a social life. It can be arduous, lonely and overwhelming. But it can also be liberating - not just adapting to your new normal, but wholeheartedly embracing it.
What if you saw your circumstances as an opportunity for new beginnings and a call to step up in ways you never thought possible? In The Single Mother's Social Club, journalist Jacinta Tynan interviews experts and single mothers to share the best advice for thriving when you're the only adult in the home, along with her own experiences of making it as a single mum.
You can look back and lament. Or you can join the club.
