Abstract

Parenting can be very difficult at times, and even more challenging for someone trying to raise a child (or children) on their own. There are many different reasons why women become single mothers and this can either be by choice or by chance. Either way, mothers have to make many sacrifices in order to “do it all”. These women usually have one source of income and half the time to spend with their children. After doing some research, I found the bonding with the mother and the child at birth, as well as different stages of growing up, can be very life changing. The role a mother has in a single parent position is more difficult than it would be with a partner.
