As a single father, it is often so hard to ask for help and support. S often single parents get trapped into the thinking that their past life and their past choices make them unworthy of the help of others, and so it's a burden that they tend to want to carry all themselves. But the truth is, everybody needs some help sometimes. It doesn't matter what your life circumstance; there's gonna be a time you need help. Most importantly, your kid needs you to be at your best. If you're at your best, your kid is happy. Being at your best includes asking for help, because you're gonna need it from time to time.

Dan Pearce

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.
