Been There: Jewels

"My advice to other single mothers is to celebrate your sons and daughters.
Be excited about everything they do, praise them for efforts big and small, and minimize arguing.
Allow them to have good relationships with their fathers.
Make them feel loved and appreciated."

—Single mother Brenda Stubbs
Quoted on child-rearing in the new book
