Single Parent Concerns

Single Parent Concerns


There are some issues that school counselors identified as more significant to some of the single parents they encounter. They specifically mentioned the discrepancies in rules and expectations in the different households.


Another area is helping the single parent avoid the manipulation of children and other adults while insuring that their children do not adopt these manipulative behaviors.


A third area of concern is recognizing and handling the “blame game” that sometime occurs when relationships end. As you may have already realized, these stories will help both the children and adults deal more effectively with these situations.
