Maybe you've heard the statistics about children growing up in single-parent families. According to a lot of the research, these kids are more likely to struggle in school, have difficulties with the law, and deal with drug and alcohol abuse-along with other problems. But does growing up with a single parent have to mean these things will happen? Are these children going to lead worse lives than those with two parents? This book tells the stories of several single-parent families, their struggles, and the things they have learned from their situations. These families are not concerned with the statistics, but with making their families and themselves the best they can be.
