If you are getting over an infidelity, being alone could mean you are undesirable… or it could mean that your ex’s behavior was outside your control, and has no bearing on who you are or how beautiful you are. Being a divorced mom could mean you always stay home alone on weekend nights … or it could mean that you use your time alone to do something dynamic like go back to school, volunteer in the community or start a business.

In many cases we see men and women finding the right career at age 50 or even older.
Being a single parent can be challenging on even the most relaxed days, but summertime brings a whole new set of challenges. There are the heat and the bugs, the cuts and the scrapes, and the inevitable “Mom I’m bored” heard by every parent at least once over the summer.
