There are over 9 million single moms in the US. Given this huge number, we SHOULD be doing all we can to provide ‘single mom support’. But sadly, they are often the social outcasts in society. Even more, men blame women for being single moms, which is unfair, hurtful and just wrong. Which woman sets out to be a single mom? Yet it happens, a lot. This is often due to circumstances beyond our control.
As a single Mom and immigrant this topic has always been very close to my heart. This video therefore will help you understand how difficult it is to become a single mom. I’m also giving you some ideas on how you can help other women who bravely took this role. In the video I will also share some ways to make things fun without spending money and create a support network—things I learned that were essential to my survival when I was a single mom.
If you know a single mom or are one, please share this with your circles. I want to help you figure out how to survive as a single mom and am giving you a few of my tips that helped me to make it through.
We need to encourage and push each one to reach their goals in life, whatever that may be. Let’s support other single moms and fight towards what you really want for you and your family. I want to help everyone learn how to survive as a single mom—and to THRIVE!
