Introducing the soon to be published book, and ultimate single parent guide How To Be A Happy Single Parent, by Frolo Founder Zoë Desmond and journalist Rebecca Cox!
Since I founded the leading single parent app Frolo, I have heard of the same struggles, issues, questions, needs and concerns from new single parents over and over. I am so proud of the community that's formed on the Frolo App, and how much the support of others in the same situation can make the journey significantly smoother, however many hurdles we’re navigating.
I met single mum and writer Rebecca Cox (@singlemotheredit) back in 2019 via Frolo and we’ve been friends ever since. We’ve always spoken about the need for an inclusive guide for all single and solo parents, whatever their setup or circumstances, to offer help and support when it is most needed. So knowing how much it could positively help and impact those who need it most when they need it most, we decided to go about creating it.
Our book, How to Be a Happy Single Parent, will help you to build a life that is right for you, and your children. It will guide all newly single and solo mums and dads through surviving the first few weeks to moving on, through legal matters, co-parenting negotiations or finding a helping hand as a solo parent and into dating and navigating work. We want to show people that single parenting isn’t something to survive, it’s a life that’s filled with opportunities and adventures, and the making of many wonderful new happy memories along the way.
We’ve also teamed up with a host of single and solo parents from all backgrounds and in a host of different situations (a few of whom you will definitely recognise!), who have shared their stories with us and show you that whatever your setup, you’re not doing this alone. This book is for the co-parents, the widow/ers, the solo mums and dads by choice, the solo adopters, and the would-be single parents.
I’ll be sharing more details about the book over the coming weeks, and we’ll be hosting Instagram live events and meetups on the app, because this book is for every single member of the frolo community, because you inspired us to create it.
