Doing It All as a Solo Parent (HBR Working Parents Series) (Hardcover)
You're only one person. Make life a little easier.
As a single parent, your life is different from the other working parents around you. With the pressure to perform well at work and no partner to assist with tasks at home (let alone major crises), you likely find yourself pulled in all directions, with many responsibilities and little support. It's a heavy weight to bear.
Doing It All as a Solo Parent offers you the help you need to lighten the load. Drawing on the wisdom of experts and parents alike, it provides practical tips and advice tailored to your unique challenges as a solo parent.

- Set a budget based on one income
- Build a support system of family and friends
- Carve out time for your kids—and for yourself
- Achieve work-life balance while working multiple jobs
