Growing up with one parent

If you're being raised by one parent—because your father or mother has passed on or because your parents are divorced or separated—Christian Science has something to say that can help you enormously.

First, you may be tempted to feel sorry for yourself in such a situation. Where's your dad when the father-daughter banquet comes around? Or your mom when you need somebody to teach you how to hem a skirt or be your biggest fan at a swim meet? Of course it's a challenge. But you don't have to feel overwhelmed. Being raised by one parent is an opportunity to begin hammering out some basic concepts about your relationship to God, concepts that everyone, sooner or later, will have to get around to figuring out.
