Single mums Single Parent Network came to fruition after a realisation that parenting groups searched for on Facebook rarely focused on the needs of single mothers and the trials they face. Being a single mum of 1 since pregnancy, finding the support of other single mothers has been invaluable. Something I wanted to share and pass onto others in the same situation. Don’t get me wrong mothers with the benefit of a partner have given me invaluable support and advice but sometimes only another single mother can truly understand how difficult being a lone parent can be.
When starting the group I underestimated how much time and effort really needs to be put into establishing a successful group. I reluctantly made the decision recently that I would have no option but to close the group down due to its lack of activity. The group was then thrown a lifeline by Steffi Rox of Nice Mums Devon and suggesting that Single Parent Network become a sister group to Nice Mums. So with renewed vigour and determination the hunt is on for another admin to join the team.....
