Your guide to building a life that's full of joy as a single parent
Through her own experience of becoming a single parent and in her work founding the leading single parent app Frolo, Zoe Desmond heard the same questions over and over again and found that while backgrounds and family setups may vary, single parents everywhere share many of the same concerns. The community she founded has helped thousands of people find a way to not just survive, but thrive, and this book will do the same for you.
How to Be a Happy Single Parent will help you build a life that is right for you, and your children. From surviving the first few weeks to moving on, through legal matters, co-parenting negotiations or finding a helping hand as a solo parent and into dating and navigating work, this book will take you step-by-step through the first few days, weeks, months and years of your new life.
This book is for all single parents: the co-parents, the widow/ers, the solo mums and dads by choice, the solo adopters, and the would-be single parents. It is the book people will pick up when they think 'How am I going to do this?'. And the book you'll hand your best friend when they say 'I need to leave, but I don't know how'. It is the book that will give you hope (and practical guidance) when you're feeling overwhelmed by the enormity of what you are navigating.
Tackle the overwhelm and hurdles of single parenthood head on, and give yourself permission to imagine a life that looks different to the one you thought you'd have... and happier than you'd ever thought possible.
