Single Mum's Survival Guide Summary


Single Mum's Survival Guide: How to Pick Up the Pieces and Build a Happy New Life by Vivienne Smith, PhD

"Once upon a time I was perfectly happy-complacent even. But then my world came crashing down and I was suddenly a single mum of two small children, losing sleep over how to pay the bills. The things I learned allowed me to retain my sanity, self-esteem, and sense of humour and to help my children get through the experience. I discovered how to release the traumatic experiences and emotions that were holding me back and find more fun, fulfillment, and balance in my life (not to mention my lovely husband!)"
