Advice on parenting

In this myth-busting manifesto, Sarah Thompson shares her own experience of single motherhood together with case studies and insights from some of the leading voices in child development, psychology, education and the law.

Being a single mother wasn't always part of the plan. The fear of it kept me and my family in a situation that wasn't good for any of us. I never thought it could be the life change we all needed. Yes, it can be exhausting, lonely, and financially tough. But it can also be empowering and joyful, in ways you might never have imagined.

At first, I felt like a big failure. And how was I supposed to feed and clothe my children, keep a roof over our heads, and work wearing something other than pyjamas, while also remembering to at least once a week drink a glass of water? But as I began to let go of other people's expectations, I started to enjoy the freedom of being a single parent: I was liberated, empowered and able to be the authentic mother I wanted to be.

In this book, I share my own experience of single motherhood, alongside insights from fellow solo parents, child psychologists and other experts, providing reassurance and tips to help you:

- Raise resilient, emotionally intelligent children
- Manage your money
- Navigate the world of dating
- Forge meaningful friendships
- Discover the untold joys of the single-mother life

From one single mother to another, this book celebrates solo parenting and tackles the issues that we face daily, offering a fresh perspective and practical advice for anyone who has ever felt the weight of disappointment and guilt at their single parent status, declared themselves a failure or worried about their children's 'outcomes.'

I hope reading about my experiences will help you feel excited and proud to be a single mother.
