The Single Parent Family: A Challenge for Parents. Successful Parenting. Facilitator's Guide. Part Seven.
Taylor, Barbara Lynn
Intended for parent educators, this facilitator's guide outlines a workshop for single parents to help them meet the challenges of raising children alone. The guide first presents frameworks for a 1- or 2-hour workshop and for an 8-session workshop. The remainder of the guide corresponds to a 28-minute companion video, presenting questions for discussion prior to and after viewing the video, and discussion points geared to specific parts of the video. Topics covered are: (1) ways single families happen; (2) problems found in each single-family situation; (3) suggestions for parents who are separated or divorced; (4) some serious problems for divorced or separated parents; (5) problems divorced people have that go beyond their role as parents; (6) ideas that should help noncustodial parents; (7) problems common to most single parents, regardless of their circumstances; (8) parenting practices all parents should keep in mind; (9) dating; (10) remarriage; (11) advantages of being a single parent; (12) what makes a single parent home hard for the children; (13) what kids miss by not living with the other parent too; (14) how single parent children sometimes feel; (15) research comparing children from single-parent families to those from two-parent families; and (16) advice from the single parents appearing in the video. A personal plan worksheet and workshop handouts are appended. (HTH)
