      Hi, I am a single parent to a lovely 2year old he is a wonderful child but i could do with some help. I have no friends or family support or no childcare at all he is home with me 7days a week and i also work from home. I havnt had a day out alone in two years or got out and i feel very frustrated and isolated. What steps can i take to make it easier I have just sorted out childcare for one day a week so hopefully i will get a small break then. I have no friends to meet up with or anything anymore as i left everything behind and am starting to rebuild from scratch. Any advice?
      Thanks
      Annon

      Maybe join a local playgroup. It gets you out of the house and an opportunity to meet other mums.

      Find a single mum group on FB and see if there is anyone local who would like to meet up with you. There are lots of mums in the boat.

      What you have done is perfect. I put my little ones in daycare one day a week and it was lovely to have some time to myself. I made a point of spending half the day doing chores and the rest on me!

      If you go to a park with your son, you’ll find there are heaps of other mums with kids the same age there. And they love to chat 🙂 You’ll make mumma friends in no time, especially if you explain your situation, please are generally so kind.

      Could join up to a team sport or yoga, Zumba etc…
      Doing something like an workout may help with your mental health. I found exercising and participating in a group workout session really helped my mental health and general well-being.
      Maybe you can also go for walks in the afternoons with your lo in the pram?
