Episode details

In this episode Aisha dives into (what she describes as) the most challenging stage of the Single Mother by Choice journey: parenting. She discusses how the parenting stage has been psychologically challenging, given the grey areas and the need to factor in the individuality of each child.

Aisha also talks about her experience parenting two children simultaneously in addition to answering the following questions:

  1.  When you began your SMC journey, what thoughts did you have around how you wanted to parent?
  2. How has your worldview shaped how you parent your child/children, given that we each parent through a lens framed by our own experiences?
  3. How do you hold onto your parenting style in the face of what is culturally acceptable or at least standard practice in your extended family?
  4. Who are your people, and where do you go to share the little things about parenting?
  5. What surprised you about your parenting journey?
  6. What have you learned about the school system now that you are a customer?
  7. How has entering the school system impacted your child?
  8. What traditions are you putting in place for your family?

Join Aisha on this insightful and reflective journey through the parenting stage of the Single Mother by Choice journey.
