~When parents recognize the importance of living a life not solely focused on their child and work to create balance by seeking support, they can address their needs as well as those of their child. By acknowledging needs as individuals and as a couple, parents can continue in their roles as partners and parents, and single parents can be intentional about caring for themselves in addition to their child.
