What Got All This Started For This Single Dad…
I used to think that being a single dad was not an “optimum” solution. Then I began to think that there is no “optimum” solution.
The skills and choices that all parents need and want seem to be somewhat universal. That is true no matter what your parenting situation is. Still, I created this page to discuss some of the unique challenges of being a single parent. More specifically I try to discuss what it is to be a single dad.
As with all things in life you try to make the best of the situation. I have been a parent for over eight years now and I have been a single dad for a little over four. In that time I have learned a great deal about:
- Parenting tips and tricks
- Great products for kids
- Destinations and events
- Dealing with an ex
- Creating a joyful and loving environment while maintaining a sense of order, responsibility and continual learning when you are a single dad
And of course a whole lot more than that since parenting of any kind is a never-ending list of to-do’s and what-if’s.
So What Doest This Blog Offer?
This is not meant to be any more than my two cents on the subject. I am just like you in that I succeed and I fail. Sometimes I am frustrated by not knowing the difference!! The last couple of pandemic years have really put that idea to the test. Through it all I strive to keep a level head and a loving heart. I try to give my kids the most engaged, most rewarding, and best life I possibly can as a single dad.
So if you are like me and you are constantly working to be the best parent you can be no matter what your situation, please keep reading. By all means if you have your own unique insights into parenting or specifically being a single dad or if you have any questions about the things that I have to say on the subject, please leave a comment and I will be more than happy to start a discussion with you. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!
