March 21 is National Single Parent Day
March 21 is National Single Parent Day, and we at KB Staffing would like to acknowledge all of the hard work and sacrifice that goes into being a single parent. We recognize that many families in Polk County are single-parent households. The circumstances may vary, but we value the commitment to family that these parents exhibit. We understand that being a single parent can be stressful and overwhelming at times. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of helpful ideas to help you manage some of that stress.
- Make self-care a priority. Yes, it can be hard to find time to take care of yourself when looking after children and working, but it is important. In order to be the best parent and person you can be, you need a little time and care for yourself. Whether it’s having a quiet cup of coffee in the morning before the kids get up or treating yourself to something special once in a while, make sure you are tending your own mental health.
- Hire help when you need it. How much help you can afford depends on your budget, but a monthly house cleaning can make a big difference. Maybe you could pay a babysitter to watch the kids while you run errands. A little help can go a long way.
- Connect with other parents. Look for social groups for single parents to help you find others that you can talk to. This is a great way to get new perspectives and learn tips to help make your days run smoother.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for favors. Friends and family are often willing to help out with the kids, if only for a short time. This can also be a great opportunity for children to learn from and bond with other adults.
The most important thing to remember is that you are enough, and that you’re doing a great job. We at KB Staffing salute all the single parents out there making it work.
