Taking Care of Mom

10 Inspirational Books for Solo Mothers

Are you a single mother who feels "burnt out" or just needs a dose of encouragement? Check out the books in our list.

Being a solo parent is definitely not without its challenges. Besides being responsible for one’s children, one also has to deal with “issues” like childsupport 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 helpyou 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 theirside to share the parenting load!
