One of the biggest challenges newly single dads talk about is the need to establish new routines when the other adult at home is not there anymore. From finding ways to grocery shop and meal plan more efficiently to keeping chores at home straight, there is a lot of organising to do and not as much help doing it. Adjusting to Life as a Single Parent Single parenting is a challenging task in and of itself, and if this is your first time embarking down such a path, it will likely take some getting used to. As you begin adjusting to being a single dad when you are miserable and missing your ex, you begin your healing from the loss of your family. This is an important and vital step in the experience.

If you find yourself at a loss sometimes, you may want to consider getting my daily inspiration emails. The best advice on being a single father has to do with this: understanding the new rules and guidelines intellectually is one thing but embodying what it takes to be a single dad. “When you become a single dad, you possibly think about fatherhood more.

Because you’re not with your child all the time, it suddenly becomes about making the most of your time together. “I think a lot about creating ‘moments’ with Jethro. So a moment might just be taking a bushwalk together and trying to spot whales off the coast. Adapting to Life as a Widowed Father Take the time to grieve as a family.. The grieving process after the loss of a mother and wife can take a long time, Seek counseling if needed.. Especially for children, the process of grieving and learning to cope without a mother can Accept help when.

Adjusting to Single-Parenthood: Your Mental Health. So, you’re a onesy in a twosy world. Well, you’re not the only single parent in town. You may be amazed to know that there are more than 10 million single-parent households in the United States alone — 77.5 percent headed by single mothers and 22.5 percent headed by single dads. It’s difficult to become a successful single parent to your child when your working responsibilities take over your life.

But it’s important to strike the optimal work-personal life balance. Life as a new single dad has been a rough adjustment. To go from caring for and seeing my two girls to hardly seeing them at all has been hell for me. Going from the role of what seemed like Mommy & Daddy to just part time Dad and tore me apart both mentally & emotionally.

Engage with your child’s interests – As a single parent, you will have more one-on-one time with your child. It’s an excellent opportunity to engage with their interests and forge a deeper bond with them.

Ideally, then, you will have time home together during the first few days, with enough help so that Dad doesn’t have to prepare all of the meals, care 100 percent for older kids, try to meet your needs, help with the baby, and have no time left to just enjoy and integrate these new relationships.

  • So I bet nobody cares but when I was 15 I was stupid got drunk and also got a girl pregnant well she didn’t want the baby so I took her in (the baby) and now I’m 28 with a amazing and beautiful 13 girl and even though sometimes I feel like curling in a ball and crying it makes me so happy to see her smile basically what I’m trying to say is if you feel like times are tough it will all work out in the end btw my profile picture is my little girl

  • the thing that bothers me the most is when i tell someone i am a single father and then they ask me how often my ex lets me see my kid.

  • I wish you were the father of my baby, I’m 43 and my 50 year old boyfriend abounded me as soon my birth control failed. What a beautiful father your children have!!! God bless you!!

  • I’m a single dad. I work all day and I’m tired when I get home but I push through and make sure they are happy and feel loved but I feel soooo alone. I don’t understand the double standard of how a guy is supposed to step up to the plate with a single mom but a woman is warned not to get involved with a single dad because of the responsibility.

  • Love your courage to share your story as a single father. I too am a single father of 2 and just created my YouTube channel to share cooking tips for single parents like us and workout drills while balancing be the best single parent we can be. Respect and more power to you ����

  • Thanks for sharing this video. I guess you have a bit more time to yourself if you are only seeing your children 2 days per week. But I acknowledge the strain it will be having on everyone involved!

    I have a 2 year old son and I’m very unhappy in my marriage. My wife says she still loves me but whenever anything frustrates her, she turns violent. Yelling, swearing, vile put downs, grabbing me, kicking me, punching me. I’m so sick of it. Even when she will sleep or stay in the bedroom watching her phone whilst our son is out in front of the TV. Thank God her father is helping me because I’m a shift worker and can’t manage it all on my own. She also works full time but doesn’t spend enough time with him.

    I went to collect a hire car and drop off my car for repairs yesterday afternoon. Also went grocery shopping after dropping my wife off at home. I came back an hr later to discover our son hadn’t eaten and she had ordered delivery for herself. She was asleep on the bed with my son sitting alone with nothing to eat watching TV. That hurt. I tried to clean up, unpack, make him something to eat and she came out in the middle of it. Started yelling and insulting me about some door frames not being painted yet. Her father had to take my son away outside to protect him. He isn’t well. A bit sick and teething with his molars.

    After she cooled down, she mentioned wanting to travel with me. I asked why and she said I’m still her husband. What a joke…cycle of abuse. Kick a man when you don’t get what you want…

    She tried to hug him last night in my bed (we often sleep in separate rooms) and he pushed her away a few times and said get away every time she tried to kiss him. Especially when she tried to tell me to shut up or raised her voice at me.

    It is having an impact on my son. My parents are very supportive for me to live with them if I decide to leave. I’m just going for specialist DV counselling next week. I need time to sort things out. A support line reminded me to have a safe plan in place before attempting to leave.

    I have tried to leave a few years ago before our son came into the picture and she went full on manic. Cutting my clothes, standing at the rear of my car threatening to smash my laptop into the rear window etc to get me to stay. Even running in and out of our bedroom claiming she has a boyfriend. I said she can bring him to me then whilst I pack. Why hide him. All lies btw. She even tried to get a rise out of me by claiming she had sex with men every time when she went back to her home country each year without me. Again it was all lies and she admitted she was saying it to try and stop me and hurt me.

    I care so much for our son and don’t want to keep putting up with her violence.

  • Muta: Fun fact Google keeps track of you MAC address and correlates it with nearby users MAC addresses even when you are offline to figure out where you are

  • @ 4:22 You nailed it on this one. I’ve been raising my three girls for the past ten years and it has been the toughest, yet rewarding job i’ve ever had!

  • Great video from one SD to another. Related to so much. Especially not seeing every day. Also wanted to give you the one extra sub to have 200 subscribers

  • Most websites or apps won’t even let you use VPNs, They try to block the ranges of providers.
    It’s stupid what people do for money.
    There are ways around it though but still, it’s stupid.

  • New subscriber!! Single mom here and my sons father needs to take a long hard look at your channel. The last thing he said to me was “it’ll just be easier if he’s with you because you’re his mom.” I don’t even know what that meant but to me it basically felt like he was underestimating himself or just didn’t wanna be responsible. I love these single dad channels because it just proves so much to society and my ex that men are very capable of doing everything a mom can and they definitely do not get enough credit. Keep it up! ❤️����

  • Respect all them dudes who handles being a single dad I’ve been taking care of my daughter for three years solo. her mom been around mabee 6 times in those years it’s a struggle but just keep chins up and push and take care of your little ones

  • I have some advice to single dads, as a single mom. Dont keep thinking your anxiety about having a serious relationship with someone new means its going to fail. New relationship anxiety happens to everyone, not just single parents. Your new partner is not your ex partner. Live in the moment and if things are going well then go with it. Don’t let your past fears ruin a potential long term relationship. Get professional support if you’re having difficulty letting go.

  • You’re the most special youtuber i never see it before
    and in my country many parents have split their relationship
    But they do not divorce. Do this all for the children
    and i think you really doing a great job as a single father
    I also grew up in a single parent family.
    AND ENVIROMENT is Extremely important.That will affect the child’s whole life
    and i’m so glad King Have the best dad in the world,I can’t wait to see he grow up 😉

  • I really respect what he is doing this is a hero you’ll and I really hope he finds a girl that won’t take him for granted there is not a lot of guys like you:) ❤️

  • I hate tick tok or whatever or however its spelled I dont care but if I was to come up with it I would sell it cause I’m the type that is kinda paranoid every body’s coming to get me so I would sell that shit so I can have tons of money and live
