Single moms do need some time to relax and have fun too. Be sure to schedule time for yourselves, so that you can keep your stress levels low and also function effectively with parenting. I know it can be hard with single mom's to get the time but I suggest "swap nights out". There are times that relatives or friends may not be available to help you, however, if you have another friend who is a single mom as well, why not have her babysit so that you can get some time to yourself and you do the same for her in return. It keeps the cost of a babysitter low and still gives you some time for yourself. What other suggestions do you have?
