The Courage to Be a Single Mother
Becoming Whole Again After Divorce
by Sheila Ellison

Divorcing with children presents mothers with special and extremely challenging situations. The Courage to Be a Single Mother guides divorced mothers through the changes; through the guilt, fear and anger of this traumatic event. Author Sheila Ellison shares her own experience tackling tough challenges, including: talking to one's children, family, and friends; finding an attorney; dealing with visitation and restraining orders; coming up with a new and livable definition of "family"; nurturing angry, sad, and confused kids; enlisting support from friends and loved ones; quieting one's inner questioning and guilt; finding faith, and more. She offers creative suggestions to make the most out of summer vacations, negotiate holidays, and explore inexpensive and fun activities for single parents and their children.

Though filled with practical, reassuring guidance on single parenting in the modern world, this is much more than a book on coping—it is an inspiration for women; it will help them discover strength they didn't know they had. It will help women put the pieces back together.

In her online communities and workshops, bestselling author Sheila Ellison teaches divorced mothers how to revitalize their energy, self-worth, and spirit—as individuals, as women, and as mothers. Now, in The Courage to Be a Single Mother, Ellison offers a refreshingly real and honest book that will help women and mothers everywhere recover from their divorces. Ellison uses her own stories, as well as stories told by dozens of others, to empower women struggling with the enormous and unique demands of being a single parent. Sheila Ellison revolutionizes how single mothers define family and support in her book The Courage to Be a Single Mother.
