Relate : How to Enjoy Mother’s Day as a Single Mum

Mother’s Day is traditionally an opportunity to spend time with your family, feel appreciated and of course put your feet up.  But what about if you’re a single mum?

Perhaps this is your first Mother’s Day without a partner around to make plans on your behalf and you’re not sure how to approach the day. With this in mind, relationship support charity, Relate Cymru has compiled tips on how to enjoy Mother’s Day as a single mum.

Relate Cymru’s National Director, Gwilym Roberts, said: “In our experience, single mums sometimes feel reluctant to celebrate Mother’s Day.  They can feel awkward about planning activities for themselves or asking children for cards.  It may not be possible to see the kids on Mother’s Day and this can feel upsetting. It can also bring up memories of how things used to be before they were separated. Whilst you shouldn’t feel under pressure to celebrate Mother’s Day, as a single mum you absolutely deserve it.  With careful planning and clear communication it’s possible for everyone to enjoy the day and create new memories.”
