Enjoying ALL the Love Around Us, and IN Us All

Each year Valentine’s Day comes on the heels of Christmas and New Year’s Day. Typically, by the time you catch your breath and sort of recover from the “holidaze” it is time to gather cards, flowers, chocolate, and schedule quality time with those we hold dear to make them understand how much we care. The flip side of that is that we need to prepare to BE loved as well.

For Single Parents by Cederick Tardy

I want to open a discussion about unintentional child abuse and neglect in America and what it has done to this generation.

What is unintentional child neglect? UCN is when a parent decides to put a priority of lower value over the ultimate well-being of his or her child. In many cases the parents thinks they are acting in the child’s best interest. In America, 3.3 million reports of child abuse are made every year. In 2005, 49.7 percent of children who were mistreated were white, 23.1 percent were African American, and 17.4 percent were Hispanic (USDHHS, 2007). Imagine the “statistics” if the numbers reflected the unintentional child neglect figures.

Every little bit helps when it comes to saving money to get back to school!!

Single Parent Advocate just partnered with Operation Back to School, and World Vision in the Dallas area to send 350 children of single parents back to school with back packs. This was no small task, so we found many other organizations committed to helping students succeed in education by giving supplies to qualified families.

Thanks to Life Message, Grace Outreach Church in Plano, Texas, First Baptist Downtown Dallas, Operation Back to School, World Vision, SheBang Gun Club and Tamara Shelley, Siemens, Solomon Associates, Courtney Ridings and Fred Mackie, Chick Fil A Park and Plano, participating Starbucks locations, Gifts for Moms, This Side Up Family Fun Center, and all the individuals that helped gather, pack, and deliver school supplies this year with Single Parent Advocate! Also, thanks to Telemundo for helping to tell our story!

Many single mothers today find it difficult to arrange for dependable child care during the summer months. A common problem many encounter is not only finding safe child care, but also being able to find affordable options. Not only that, but no mother wants her children spending the entire summer without any kind of reading, educational experiences, or real mental stimulation. So how does a busy single mom find summer child care that is affordable, safe, and exciting/challenging for their children?
