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.

Surviving the Holidays as a Single Parent Family

It's difficult not to feel the holidays - the decorations, the carols, and the inundation of sales everywhere. But perhaps your journey into singlehood is leaving you feeling more like The Grinch; the lack of funds, multiple life changes, and children who may still be reeling from loss or divorce, may cause difficulties for this "jolly" time of year that weren't present before. Since your life is "beginning anew" it's important to dawn some new perspectives regarding the holidays as well.
