As a single dad, it is important to know that you are not alone. While the responsibilities of child rearing and care may rest heavily upon your shoulders, there are many resources available to help lighten the load. One thing that can help lighten the load is a support group. Becoming involved in a support group is essential as a single dad since you do not have a support partner at home. Support groups allow you to bounce ideas off other single dads and encourage one another through the difficulties you face as a single parent. This section provides you with access to parenting resources and information on support groups to help get you through those tough times.
