Special Topic: Doing Boundaries as a Single-Parent
Our January Single Parents Support group will run in-person at The LightHouse Arabia. The group is open to Adults ages 21 years and above.
Research suggests that single-parent families are more vulnerable to social isolation and mental health difficulties.
Being a single-parent can be challenging to say the least. Single-parents may often feel thinly spread, overwhelmed and underappreciated. Most single-parents juggle their household responsibilities with work, which leaves very little time for themselves. Their parenting responsibilities are no different to that of those married – but the difference is that they have a stronger sense of feeling like they are doing it on their own. Single-parenting exacerbates the pressures of raising kids, especially in the 21st century.
Attendees of this support group will walk away with:
• A better understanding of the core ingredients involved in setting healthy boundaries
• Knowledge around the signs of unhealthy boundaries in relationships
• Practical boundary setting strategies for co-parenting effectively
Spaces are limited for in-person attendance and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. This event is suitable for ages 21 years+.
