Single parenting

The Christian Science Monitor

Most of us can probably think of someone who is a single parent. Having had that label—and its accompanying responsibilities—myself, I gave it a lot of thought.

As a youngster I had learned that God is my Father and my Mother. I was taught in the Christian Science Sunday School that no matter where I was, I could never be alone because God was always there caring for me and directing me. This was very comforting to me when I was a child. When I became an adult and found myself a single parent, I prayed to know that God was still there to care for me and direct me, to know that He was the true Parent of my children.
