The anecdotes in this booklet describe coping strategies for single parents. The stories illustrate the many resources that exist to help men and women adjust to the loss of a mate and the responsibility of caring for children. Parents are advised to request assistance from relatives, friends, churches, and public service agencies. A plan will help parents focus on actions to alleviate concerns about money, health care, and recreation. Parents also should address the questions that children have about the missing parent in a considerate way.
