Staying Sober as a Single Parent
Contributed by: Michelle Peterson
Whether you are starting your recovery journey with a baby on the way or with a six year old who is already here, becoming sober and staying sober are greatly beneficial to your health and happiness, as well as your child’s health and happiness. For parents, kids are often their number one priority, so gaining sobriety is important to give their kid the parent he or she deserves. But being a parent can also be a trigger for relapse.
Summer months can become very sticky, messy, and complicated for mothers, fathers, and children in divorced families. Divorce decrees can mandate that when school is out, and the children visit the other parent for extended periods of time. They may stay several weeks or even all summer with the other parent. In places with year-round school, the children might stay with the other parent each track-out time.
