My Single Parent Adventure

My name is Keith Maki and I am the single parent of two great children,  When my single parent adventure started Jason was 7 and Laura was 5.  I have no clue how to take care of them on my own outside of the basics of feeding them, getting them to bed, and doing their laundry.  There is  a lot to learn!

I did find some much needed help.  My parents helped me  with over the phone pointers when needed.  The kids mother and I got along so it made life easier on both me and the kids.  I read some books in order to get myself organized.  The kids and I learned how to be flexible and how to talk with each other which resolved a lot of issues.

We had our trials and tribulations but it was a memorable experience.  My single parent adventure is one I will cherish forever and would never trade.  We learned so much from each other and grew closer by doing so.  If you are one of the adults who believe you can’t learn from a child you are badly mistaken!

Are You Ready For A Single Parent Adventure

The one thing that is an absolute must in any single parent adventure is sacrifice.  Your priority has to be the children.  They have to be first in each and ever decision.  They will be busy and demand all of your time and energy.  If you are not able to place them as your main focus you should rethink your situation.   Children need to feel they are the most important people in your life.  You are the adult and they depend on you and your unconditional and not distracted love.

This site is dedicated to the adventure we had together – the two kids and me.  It was a wonderful journey filled with twists and turns but mainly laughs and some tears but it all lead to us growing up together.

I hope you enjoy your time with us!

    Hi Keith,
    I’m very sure that many parents can learn from you! The fact that your priority has to be the children and they need to feel they are the most important people in your life is really a great attitude!!! I wish, more parents would think and act like that!
    I wish you all the best for you and your children!

      Thank you Gerlinde!
      I have seen many times when parents put themselves over their children’s needs and it does not work. The children feel left alone and unloved. They really need to be put above the the all others because they are so innocent and trusting. If we don’t take time to do that they will turn out bitter and who knows who they will turn to for the attention and love that they need!

      Take care and thank you for reading my site,

      Keith
