Besides being responsible for one’s children, one also has to deal with “issues” like child support and custody rights, co-parenting with your child’s father, knowing when and how to apply for parental leave, finding a support group that can help you out and even (gasp!) getting back onto the dating field. No wonder solo moms get stressed out more easily than moms who have their kids’ dads by their side to share the parenting load!
