Shoshana Alexander, author of "In Praise of Single Parents," offers these tips: * Take on the job as if you were about to climb a mountain. Dedicate yourself to the task. In other words, choose to do it, instead of trying to find ways out of it--such as looking for a partner to share the parenting. Being a single parent will strengthen you as a person. * Make the child a priority. Choose work that has flexible hours, if possible. Create a schedule that includes daily time with the child.
