Review about this article

According to the Pew Research Center, in 2014 fewer than half of the minor children in the United States lived in a two-parent home. Until the publication of Life and the Single Parent, there was no substantive commercial publication that addressed the particular needs of those homes. This excellent, new publication is published in Southern Florida, but beyond some community content, its focus is absolutely national in nature. Its content strives to address all family members, with columns such as “Teens Talk,” “Community,” “Healthy Living,” and “Parent Corner.” It has coloring pages and puzzles for the youngest, and interviews with teens. Some recent article titles include ACME WRITERS“Teach Your Children Well, Helping Kids Honor the Other Parent” and “Single Parenting With Chronic Illness.” Its content is thoughtful, generous, and very positive. Any public library that addresses the needs of families should be purchasing this title. (Kent, Caroline M.)
