Water ParksAs many of us know, being a single parent isn’t easy.  Since there is only one of you-not two, it takes a lot of effort, time and patience to care for your child or children 24/7.  Luckily, there are plenty of rewards that single parents have.


Make All of the Decisions

When you are a single parent, you get to make all the decisions when it comes to your child.  This is extremely rewarding because you are the one he or she will come to later in life to thank you for all the great decisions you did for the them.  There is no-one else that will be making joint decisions in your child’s life except you.


Being Two People at Once

Did you ever want to be superman or superwomen and have magical powers?  Well, if you are a single parent, you do.  Single parents play the role of both mom and dad.  Who knew that you could be two people at once.  This is extremely rewarding.


No Need to Share

When it comes to your kids, you can be as selfish as you want.  You don’t have to share them with anyone else, of course until it comes time where they would rather be hanging out with their friends or their boyfriend or girlfriend.


Watch Your Hard Work Pay Off

Saying that being a parent, especially a single parent is easy is definitely a misjudgment by many people.  It is not easy being a parent.  When your kids are at that rebellion stage, things are even tougher.  Watching your kids grow up to be respectful, kind and caring is very rewarding as you can see that their personality is changing into the type of people you hoped they would be.


Showing Your Child the Way of Life

If you were in an abusive relationship, showing your kids that it is better to be a single parent and be happy than be in a relationship and be hurt and abused constantly.  Showing your child the right way of living is very important.


You Will Never Miss Anything

Being a single parent is so rewarding because you will never miss anything in their life.  Being single means they are with you all the time so you will never miss any memory that happens in their lifetime.


Getting an “I Love You”

What is more rewarding than hearing you children tell you that they love you every morning when you wake up?  Since you are single, your children will be the first ones that will tell you this each day.


No Need to Argue With Your Significant Other

Even the happiest couples disagree about some things.  Having the exact same parenting skills is pretty rare.  Being a single parent is awesome because you will not have to argue with another person about how to or how not to parent your child. 


Being a single parent has its downs, but the ups make everything positive and worth living for.  With just you and your child, together you can create an amazing family.  Having all the attention and love from your child feels absolutely wonderful.
