Since the beginning of time, parenting is always hard-earned. It’s always accompanied by loads of challenges that require parents to stick up their levels of responsibility and maturity, especially in single parenting. According to the current trend, the population of single parents disproportionately grows each dawning day. This has resulted in increased and persistent poverty levels to most of them probably to single moms than single dads according to research. It is because most single mothers lose their struggles getting by.
Exceptional vulnerability to poverty is always witnessed on most of the single mothers especially to those having many kids. This is because moms, according to Biology, portray immense emotional attachments towards their kids more than dads in general, overwhelming their needful interests to raise money to at least take care of their children.

Modernization of these programs should also be geared to supporting them with employment. Chances and opportunities should be created and made sure they mainly are at their disposals. It would be lenient enough if these programs offered assistance that gradually would help single moms earn enough for supporting their kids. This would streamline efficient workflows since assumedly; all would give their best to ascertain their job security.
Programs should also be established for child cares and education. Terms as stringent as they can be should also incorporate work time-offs for parents to take care of their ill children.
