Hungry Minds, by Diane Warner
Welcome to the wild, wonderful world of single parenting—one of the toughest, most thankless jobs in the Universe. The good news is that you’re not alone. Over the last decade, the ranks of single parents has swelled to a whopping ten million in the United States alone, forcing business and government to accommodate more of your needs. Also, society’s perceptions of single parents have changed. It’s now perfectly acceptable, even admirable to be a single mom or dad. Still, unless you’re independently wealthy and have nothing to do but work at being a perfect parent, you can use all the help you can get in making single parenting work for you and your kids.
