There are a lot of challenges that come with the territory of being a single parent. How do I show my son a proper example of family life? How do I find time for myself? How do I get exercise? How do I do all of these things when, often, there is another parent in the picture. In the end, you just need to buckle down and find a way to make it all work. I have to show a proper example to my son of a family life by being a proper parent and showing respect to his mother, even though she is not in the home with us. I have to wake up early to get exercise. I have to find time to leave my son and work on myself. I have to do all of these things just like a married parent would do. I just have to get tricky about how I do that. By doing that, I become a healthier parent in the long run.

Dan Pearce

Blogger & Single Dad

Dan Pearce is the divorced father of four year old Noah, who came to him through adoption. Dan is also the author of The Real Dad Rules and Single Dad Laughing: The Complete Second Year, and his blog, Single Dad Laughing. When he started Single Dad Laughing in the summer of 2010, his then-wife had left his life almost as quickly as she’d come into it, and he was feeling about as valuable as a dollar-store sweater (and unraveling just as quickly). He started the blog because writing has always had the power to heal him in his darkest of moments. His goal is to spread worthwhile ways of looking at things. Before becoming a writer, Dan worked in retail, in the corporate world, and as an animal artist.
