I am a single parent of a teenage daughter. I have been divorced since 2019 and single since 2017. I restarted my career at the age of 40 when I separated. I moved with my 10 year old kiddo to a new city with new lifestyle. Life was tough but with proper support and determination, I could turn around my life. I am still work in progress and healing from what I went through. So, I want to open this forum for all single women who need support, love and a space of non-judgmental sharing. Let us build a community of understanding and togetherness. YOU ARE NOT ALONE ANYMORE(YANAA) Cheers, Sandhyaa S Pillai

I recently got out of an abusive marriage. I don't regret my decision but the only thing that is disturbing me is my child. I want to support them fully but I don't know how to fill the gap of their father. How do I ensure my children feel supported and loved during and after a divorce? @Singleparent Diaries 💕

I don't think we can fill the gap of a father. It could be taxing if we try to play both the roles. They feel loved and cared for when we listen to them, show them the strength that we will work this out.Most children love to see strong moms. Having said that, having more open conversations with them helps you emote too and they see the softer version of you too. Let them know their life would be a bit different but definitely more healthy as they are not in an abusive environment. Join single parents communities in your city to meet more alike families.

Hi I want to lose my weight and please help me to motivate myself consistent. Guide me to lose weight bcoz am a mother of 14months old
Hi there, I hope you are well. - Motivation will usually last for a few days or weeks, however, discipline can last forever. - To lose weight, you will have to bring in discipline in your daily routine. - You need to prepare yourself mentally as well as physically. - Stay determined that you won't give up and start by making small changes in your routine. - Start by incorporating more fibre in the diet. Eat two servings of fruits, a bowl of salad for lunch as well as dinner daily. - Avoid packaged, ultra-processed and refined foods. - Eat in portions. - Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water daily. - Add protein to each of your meals, even snacks. - Have mid-meals or healthy snacks. - Start your morning with handful nuts, or seeds. - Keep a tab on your salt, sugar, and oil intake. - Have home-made meals that are easier to digest. - Get at least 7-8hrs of sleep on a regular basis. - Go for a walk at least 4 times a week. - Manage stress levels my meditation and yoga. I hope this helps ✨

Hey. I have had a doubt for sometime now. I always saw my parents as not one. like fighting and all. it was very rare that they both are on the same page. I wanted to know if we live together before marriage can we avoid these kinds of misunderstandings or conflicts after marriage. So like Is living together before marriage a bad idea or an okay one?
Anonymous4d
Living together absolutely doesnt guarantee marriage's success
Living together doesn't guarantee the success of your marriage. Infact even when u live in you will face conflicts, misunderstandings, however it will help you both in understanding each other and make your bond stronger.

Hello, I am a counselling psychologist, certified parenting coach, and Sub-Conscious Reprogramming Coach with more than 10 years of experience. I have written a book by the title "Raising a Mindful Parent," which has been a best-selling book on amazon. I am a speaker on various platforms and love to speak on topics on Mental Health and Parenting. I believe in the fact that a good mindset and mental health is the difference between a success and a failure, a happy life and a not-so-happy life. So, I work passionately and extensively in changing the limiting beliefs of people, which are stopping them from achieving their highest potential be it in area of personal development, self-confidence, parenting, or financial management. I have written many articles for some of the leading newspapers and websites on topics related to mental health, self-development, and parenting. I have also been invited as a panelist for panel discussions on some leading TV channels. My work in these areas has been widely recognised, and I have received many recognitions for the same.more
