There is a phrase that says “it takes a village to raise child,” which was quite accurate few decades back. Then, the child used to be nurtured by parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and close families. But now it’s not the same. Parent bring up a child or children alone, without a partner the reasons for this can vary. It would be a divorce, long distance or their partner might have passed away or they choose to be a single parents via surrogacy.
With all the troubles and hard work single parents do, with everything they hear from the society, they make sure non of that effect their kid/s. They always make sure that the kid/s have a very safe, secure, fun and comfortable environment around the house.
There are some positive trades I think the kids raised by single parents :
They make special bonds –
With more time together, the child and parent bond with time gets stronger and stronger. They understand each other better and are there for each other at every point of life. They know the importance of relationships and families so they don’t make bonds that won’t last. They choose people wisely.
They know how to share responsibilities –
Kids living with single parent have almost equal responsibility towards the chores and family. They don’t just get to do the extra things but everything. The other kids – with 2 parents – don’t get to do the real life, important things until they are adults like summiting bills, going to bank, financial issues and more. Single parent homes are often closer and more intertwined, the children know their contributions to the family really count.
They are mature and confident
They see and interact with the outside world quite early in life and learn. With more sense of responsibility their self worth and self esteem increases, they know their value and learn how to deal with things better.
With all the maturity and confident they show, they still are soft as babies inside. They would never let anything wrong happen around them. Living with the single mother/father they know the worth of emotions, hard work, real problems, Value of humans – they are more kind, respectful and caring. They know how to control actions and reactions, they know the right and wrong with the experience they have gained from situations and not age.
They are good human beings, all the love to single parents 💜💜💜
