I think that every parent needs to come up with their own set of parenting rules. I think they need to make these rules and set them in place while life is good. It's so easy to be a healthy parent and do everything right as a parent when life is good, but life also has a way of throwing you against the rocks as a parent. Every parent will experience it. If you have a set of rules in place, "I'm going to do X for my child in every situation." When times get tough, you are not going to put your child on the back burner. When I was going through my divorce, I really wanted to put myself first. It's so easy to put your child in the background, but your child's pain is real. Your child's trauma is just as real as your is, so when having a set of rules in place, it helped me never slack in my parenting as I would have. I recommend a set of rules for parents that they will keep at all times.

Blogger & Single Dad

Dan Pearce is the divorced father of four year old Noah, who came to him through adoption. Dan is also the author of The Real Dad Rules and Single Dad Laughing: The Complete Second Year, and his blog, Single Dad Laughing. When he started Single Dad Laughing in the summer of 2010, his then-wife had left his life almost as quickly as she’d come into it, and he was feeling about as valuable as a dollar-store sweater (and unraveling just as quickly). He started the blog because writing has always had the power to heal him in his darkest of moments. His goal is to spread worthwhile ways of looking at things. Before becoming a writer, Dan worked in retail, in the corporate world, and as an animal artist.
