Parenting is a blessed, but challenging, vocation--even in a home with two parents. Those who find themselves parenting alone, whether from divorce or separation, the death of a spouse or the lengthy absence of a partner, have a daunting mission. How can you make time for handing on the faith when there are bills to pay, a house to clean, clothes to wash and a thousand other demands on your time? "When You Are a Single Parent tackles this important question with practical advice for doing it all without forgetting why you are doing it. Jeanne Hunt offers specific ideas to help you create a support network, set limits and priorities, plan household tasks and celebrate family moments. Use her insights to transform your home from a battlefield where the war for your time is fought to a spiritual sanctuary. Rather than another set of obligations to fulfill, your faith can be a powerful ally in creating a happier, healthier home.

Completely revised and expanded from four to five volumes, this new edition of the "Handbook of Parenting" appears at a time that is momentous in the history of parenting. Parenting and the family are today in a greater state of flux, question, and redefinition than perhaps ever before. We are witnessing the emergence of striking permutations on the theme of parenting: blended families, lesbian and gay parents, and teen versus fifties first-time moms and dads. One cannot but be awed on the biological front by technology that now not only renders postmenopausal women capable of childbearing, but also presents us with the possibility of designing babies. Similarly on the sociological front, single parenthood is a modern day fact of life, adult child dependency is on the rise, and parents are ever less certain of their own roles, even in the face of rising environmental and institutional demands that they take increasing responsibility for their offspring.
