In today’s society, according to statistical organizations, onein seven children is raised by a non-parent family. Of which 95%are single mothers. To a certain extent, they can be calledmothers-heroines. After all, a woman who raises a child on her ownis special and deserves special treatment (deep respect, indulgenceand compassion).
We don’t choose to be born female or male, but from the momentwe are born we make millions of conscious and unconscious choices.Eventually we make our choice. A single mother made her choice tohave a baby. She did not leave the baby in the maternity hospital,but took responsibility not only for her own life, but also for thebaby’s life and health. This is already worthy of respect andadmiration.
Of course it will not be easy for her to raise a child andprovide for her needs alone. But the most important thing is herlove for the baby. Society should wrap such families with care, sothat they do not produce social orphanhood and so that after thebirth of a child a young woman does not lose her life prospects:her studies, her job. There are a lot of young mothers who havejust finished school and already had a baby. But they also need toassert themselves and realize their goals in life.
THE IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION
In my opinion, in the life of single mothers it is necessary tofollow the rule of “airplane” – first put on a mask for yourself,and then for the child. So in the beginning the mother herselfneeds to get a good education and get a high-paying job in order toprovide for herself and her child, to show on your own example howit is necessary to achieve the set goals.
Today, higher education is very important because it determinesthe future. So you need to study in order to have moreopportunities in life. Because education is the process ofacquiring information and skills needed to build the foundationthat will be needed in life. A person acquires basic knowledge ofvarious subjects during the study at school. But the level of thisknowledge is not enough to be a high-class professional. Theprocess of studying at a high school broadens our horizons,increases our communication skills, teaches us how to havedifficult conversations, how to deal with different situations, andmakes it easier to communicate with people.
THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY OUT
“-How does a single mother with a small child in her armslearn?” You will ask. Of course, it will be important, but it isworth it. Before you go through all the ups and downs of motherhoodand training, it is necessary to get the support of the peopleclose to you. Establish relationships with families in theneighborhood, old friends, make friends with your mothers in theplayground or at the kindergarten. In the meantime, look formothers in social networks.
Also, you can search for mothers’ associations in social media.When you begin to communicate with others, don’t be afraid to askfor help. Asking for help is not a sign of your weakness, it showsthat you are a communicative person. Indeed, there are more kindpeople in the world who are always willing to lend a helping hand.If you don’t want to ask for help, you can do an exchange ofservices. On the principle: you babysit my child while I attendlectures, and I’ll babysit yours the next day, so you can goshopping.
YOU’RE NOT ALONE
As for the payment of tuition in a higher educationalinstitution, you can look at several options:
- Asking for help from parents and relatives;
- Appeal to charitable organizations and funds for the support ofsingle parents;
- Try to get a grant from the state for education;
- Take a loan, and having obtained a highly paid job (thepresence of high education increases the chances of 95%), returnthe fee by parts;
- Another great option is the opportunity to participate in theSuper ParentScholarship competition at Organic.
The goal of this scholarship is to assist single parents intheir pursuit of higher education. You can learn more about thiscompetition at https://organicsbesthop.com.
A lot of people wonder how to find faith in their own strengths andabilities. It is very simple. Self-confidence is not an accident ora gift, but a skill that not only can be learned, but must belearned. This skill must be learned just as you learn to ride abicycle or to cook. So believe in yourself, achieve your goals andbe happy.
