Resources for Single Mothers: Raising Teenagers

I can tell you from my own experience that raising teenagers is not always easy. My teenagers are both girls, so I cannot speak for parents of boys. However, I can tell you that, if you have teenage daughters, there will be a lot of drama in your life. It can sometimes leave a single mother feeling quite drained.

I am still learning how to be a mother to teenagers, even though mine are 19 and 16, and I would like to share some resources with you.

P.S. If you have any resources that you would like to share, please do so in the comments section. Thank you.

Do Low-Income Children of Single Mothers do Worse in School?

I think not. I do not believe that how well a children does is dependent on either income or whether or not a child’s parents are married. I believe that whether or not a child succeeds in school has more to do with their own motivation, and the support of their parent, even when that parent is a single mother.

Each child is different. Any family unit can have a child who does well in school and a child who does not. The key to success is with the attitude of the family.

What are your views on this subject?
