Advantages Of Single Parenthood: Is It Beneficial Being An Only Parent?

In this populous world, there are to be found a number of people bringing up their children as single parents. For most of them it becomes really difficult to make both ends meet. Even complying with the basic necessities becomes quite difficult. Whatever the situation, is it advisable to educate and nurture the children as the only parent?

Most of the women look forward to having babies, but when the matter of upbringing comes, they choose to do it solely. Why? For a single mother, sole parenting becomes quite easy especially when she has a highly earning job too. She is able to provide good education and a better lifestyle to her children. Moreover, being the only boss at home, she can manage to have her own rules and principles for raising the kids. Apart from these benefits, a woman who is domineering enough feels at ease in single parenting, as she doesn't have to discuss the behavior problems with her spouse in order to discipline the children.

Pursuing a job and having a baby, both at a time are not possible, but instead of resigning, such mothers go on maternity leave, and come back after some time, leaving their young ones either with a hired nanny, or at certain day care center. Another option for having a baby is to adopt. Though the process is complicated especially when the parent is alone, but giving the proof of financial stability plays a supportive role for them. They show that they are capable of fulfilling the needs and demands of their adopted child. In adoption too, the benefits of being the only parent are the same as discussed above. That is, the parent is the one who decides the dos and don'ts for the young one.

Our purpose is not to make fun of our conventional household, in which both the parents participate in the upbringing of their children. This system being advantageous to most of the people, is still practiced largely. It is beneficial for children too, as they have both the parents looking after, and loving them. In contrast to the above situation, in which there is only one person facing all the hurdles and burden of life, this scenario presents a helping hand for the whole family, be it in form of support from the father to mother or vice versa, or from children to their parents.

Keeping in view both the situations, and considering the circumstances, neither of them is more advantageous. For some women, sole parenting is a task done easily instead of parenting together with the spouse. The proficient and qualified woman of the US has the competency and ability to manage her job and household together, in the competitive world of today. She is no more inspired those giving up their careers for their little ones. Their aim is to have kids and look after them along with their jobs, but without the intervention of their partner. To them parenting on their own seems convenient.
