The last few years has seen a tremendous increase in emotional and behavioral problems in children. Working parents, nuclear family structure, having a single child has made parenting a difficult task. Quality time is what parents are trying to juggle in their daily packed routines. Today parents may not be able to ascertain the various emotional and behavioral problems seen in children. I have tackled a few of these in the school going children like hyperactivity, behavior problems, T.V. addiction etc as well as the problems of the teenagers. Most of the times, these would be considered a part of growing up and not a serious problem. As a psychiatrist, I do feel that it is my primary duty to enlighten parents, make them aware and help them understand their children.
However, after you are alone in it, all this looks a bit stressful. Don't be disheartened! It is no longer unusual to be a single parent. Since the 1970s the concept of a family has been evolving and today you are nearly three times more likely to live under the guidance of a single parent in comparison to the past. Today the concept of a 'traditional family of 4' (husband, wife and kids) is no longer a standard. This book is tailor-made for single parents and offers them with practical guidance and tips on how they can get over their emotional turmoil and emerge as excellent parents. While using this book as a guide, you can make the most of your family by adding some fun back in. As a single parent, you would have many apprehensions and concerns which, I am sure this book will be able to cater to.

Are you a single Christian woman who hasn't reached your potential? This book is for you. It's about single Christian women not waiting to live life, but having a life in spite of disappointments, or lost dreams. Most of our lives in church we are taught that we should marry young and have children, and though that is a dream for most of us, many times it just doesn't happen. Do we blame God for not supplying us with our desires, and except life as it is, or do we go by faith and seek a higher purpose for our lives? This book was written to encourage the "the single rose" everywhere that you are more valuable to God than you know. No, you didn't get married yet, or maybe you don't even have children, but you were hoping these things would happen in your life. You're still a worthwhile human being and God has a plan for your life. He has not forgotten about you. You were created to have success and to live your dreams. It's time to pursue that goal or dream, instead of waiting to start your life when and if you get married. Time waits on no one and in some cases it either now or never to accomplish your goals. And if marriage is for you, it will happen in God's time.
