Being a parent is incredibly rewarding but the job is not an easy one. There are many trials and tribulations that occur throughout parenthood and many people have to go through those alone. There are over 13 million single parents across the United States. In Connecticut, approximately one in four families with children under the age of 18 are in single-parent households. This just goes to show that being a single parent is a common occurrence across America and in our own community.
Every day at Dolan Divorce Lawyers, PLLC we see the hard work single parents go through to support their children and their families. These parents are selfless and put the needs of their children above everything else. In honor of Single Parents Day in March, we have created the Single Parent Superhero Nomination as a way to celebrate single parents in our community for all they do.
This past year has presented new challenges for single parents. While the pandemic has been tough on many families, for single parents who are having to manage their children’s virtual learning while working full-time jobs, it can be particularly overwhelming. Day to day life in quarantine presents many new obstacles and can be especially difficult for those single parents who have lost jobs or been furloughed due to COVID-19. These individuals work tirelessly every day and we want to give these superhero parents a chance to be supported and celebrated!
We will be awarding $1000 to one deserving single parent in Connecticut. We need your help in acknowledging these exemplary parents who go above and beyond to take care of their families and children. This is an opportunity to thank and give back to someone who has dedicated themselves to their loved ones without being able to take time for themselves. To nominate someone, please fill out the form below. The deadline for nominations is March 21, 2021.
