How You Can Help A Single Mom by @DonnaFaz

Share this:

Did you know that one-quarter to one-third of all families in the world are headed by single mothers? In the past, death of a spouse had been the biggest factor. But today the reasons have become much more varied and complicated. Increased rates of divorce and non-marital childbearing, changes in cultural trends, as well as an increase in positions for women in the workplace, and the list goes on. Furthermore, it is estimated that fifty percent of children born today will spend some portion of their childhood in a single-parent household. Would you like to know how you can help a single mom?

Because support is one thing that every parent needs, that’s exactly how you can help a single mom: by offering your help. If you know a single mother, consider reaching out to her with offers of:

  1. A listening ear—Everyone needs to vent emotionally every now and then.
  2. Babysitting—A night to relax away from the kids can do a single mom good!
  3. Taxi Service—There’s no way for a mom to be in two places at once. Consider offering transportation to school or sports practice. This is especially easy if your child attends the same school or is on the same team.
  4. Uplifting—Good deed don’t have to take a lot of time or effort. Bake a cake, send a card, offer a smile, invite her over for dinner, cook dinner for her, help with lawn care (planting flowers in the spring, pulling weeds in the summer), or any other pick-me-up that you can think of.

While stress does take its toll on the emotions and on the health, you can help by reaching out today to a single mom you know.

  1. My daughter is a single mom, and while she’s the strongest person I know, even she has moments of sheer exhaustion (besides going after a university degree, she is the sole caregiver of her diabetic son).
    My hat is off to any single parent. It’s not an easy job financially, emotionally, or physically.
    God bless them.

  2. Wonderful suggestions, Donna! Having been a single mom the majority of my son’s growing-up years. these are spot-on. <3

  3. I knew a single mom a few years ago – okay many years ago – and the thing she appreciated the most was having an adult to talk to, and… me bringing my husband over to her house to help with the chores she couldn’t handle. There were so many things she just had no idea about, couldn’t afford to pay for a handyman and my bringing hubby along with me for a visit, was pure gold. He’d get busy and fix her list of to-dos and I’d spend the time with her and the kids, then we’d spring for a big pizza. Great times.

  4. Great article, Donna. We often are urged to help people for one reason or another, but the single mom seldom gets mentioned. I know mothers are supposed to do everything, but sometimes a bottle lid can defeat us.
