I think it is so important for single parents to find time for themselves away from the kid. Give themselves time to regroup. In a traditional nuclear family with a mom, a dad and kids; one parent cannot always pick up a slack when another parent needs to take a little time for themselves, but single parents don't always have that opportunity. But it so important that they make the opportunity to happen, whether it is to finding a babysitter, setting up a baby sitter swap, anything like that, they need to get away from their kids once in awhile, because lets be honest any parent that doesn't get away from their kids from time to time it's going to be, they are not going to be at their best. You need to recharge and if you never take time to recharge you slowly be drained, until you are irritable and less rational. So if you are a single parent, your kids need you at your best and that's why it so important that you find time and make time for yourself.
