    Hi All

    I hope your well.  I am new to the site and so far I am finding it really helpful.  I am just coming out of a divorce and looking to rebuild my life with new friend’s , activities , hobbies

    I have requested to join a local group but have not heard back yet, also I’m not sure how COVID rules are impacting support groups .

    If anyone is interested please get in touch.  I’m based south London so it would be especially nice to connect  with other single parents around the area.

    Thank you for reading my post 🙂

    Hi Kitty11,

    Congratulations on joining the S.P club !

    One of the best things I love about the ‘single bit’ of my life is that I do what I want, when I want, in my home and in my life. Of course there are loads of financial and practical restrictions, but just being able choose even those little things without having to ‘ask’  another person if it ‘ok’ makes me happy.

    I live in South London also. I know alot of single mums at different stages of the journey. I was brought up by a single mum. I have experienced it from a child and an adult perspective.

    I have some strong views about various forms of  discrimination against single mothers. I remember in the 1960’s and 1970’s how I was made to feel as a child in a single parent family household. Historical stigma particularly against women (as with all marginalised groups) is a stubborn stain to remove.

    Following recent contact with one of my children’s schools I have come to conclusion that single mothers (in particular) are more likely to be treated less favourably compared to couples by staff in education settings. This realisation has been gradual – but I am absolutely convinced. I have had four children and can look back and see how this pattern of being treated has been repeated.

    Hopefully we can have a chat at some point.

    Best wishes
