Single mothers’ life is hard. They raise and take care of their children alone. They also face life alone.

This is usually hard for them to face. To survive, you should follow these tips:
- Have enough time for children
Spending time with children is a good way to help you survive in becoming a single mother. You will always be entertained and slowly be cheerful again. Remember that your children are the most precious treasure that you have. Thus, spending time alone to enjoy your sadness and forgetting enjoying time with children is foolish.

Just remember and realize that there are still many people, like close friends and families, who love you. There are also government institutions that take care of single mothers’ life. If you want, you can apply to get grants or educations that are held for single mothers.
- Continue study
If you’re only a high school graduate, continuing study to university and getting bachelor degree is also a good way to do. After getting bachelor degree, you can pursue master degree to have a better future for both you and your children. Prove to others that you survive and succeed although you’re a single mother. However, just remember that you should do this without leaving your existing job. Who will earn money for you and your children if you leave your job to study? On the other hand, getting higher education, you might be able to get a better job or salary later. Thus, don’t underestimate doing this. And to lighten your burden, you can find school grants for single mother.
