Episode 063 (Family Life Series) – The Other Side of Single-Parenting

Join us for this episode of the Wise Idea Podcast as our host initiates a conversation that is a reality in our world today – single parenting.  The U.S. Census Bureau tells us that “the second most common family arrangement in America is children living with a single mother…”. This statistic represents about 23% of US homes.  Of course, there are millions of single dads out there also making life happen.  We touch on both of these realities in this podcast. Our host welcomes Ms. Kerissa Blue, a single mom and now empty nester who has successfully raised a child, who is now enrolled in college. She shares transparently and invites everyone into the world of single parents.

This current series on Family Life will focus on all aspects of Family Life including singleness, marriage, parenting, senior care, blended families, and a host of others issues and areas that impact the life of today’s family.

To say that the family is changing is an understatement.  This series of episodes will dig into all of it!
