Lone parents

Being a single parent can be hard work. It can be lonely sometimes - and hard work.  As well as the day-to-day stuff there are all the things two parent families take for granted...not having a second opinion in the middle of the night when one of the kids has a temperature; no one to take it in turns with for a Saturday morning lie-in.
