A mother's love for her children

Single Mom

A single mom parenting duties are no different than they are for a married one .Whenever you turn on the news channel you hear about a crime. No wonder so many single mom are hesitant to travel alone with their children. They fear for their safety. A good upbringing makes the better future of a person and a mother does an excellent job to give the best future for her child.Let me tell you a story I know personally there was a working woman in my neighborhood who was divorced and living with her six years daughter.

As many peoples know around the world Pakistan is a male dominant society single mom and normal woman has fewer rights as compared to western countries one of the occasions i asked her how she manage to travel alone here is some suggestion she gives me. It would be very difficult for a mother to travel with her child but you have to be strong inside to accomplish the task, If you are traveling within the country then it is different and if you are traveling internationally I think you need to be more careful with your child too.  

1) DON’T TRAVEL WITH TOO MUCH CASH

If you are single mom and working woman too Instead of bringing large amounts of cash with you, always pay for petrol, hotel rooms, with a credit card and get a receipt. Keep your receipts and check them against your monthly statement. It’s good to take at least two credit cards, In my case have already paid for the hotel and train ticket online

2) TEACH YOUR KID TO BE SAFE

Before you leave on your trip, teach your children how to be safe around strangers. suspected people! Never let your small children go into a rest-stop restroom alone. Always escort them.

3) DURING THE TRIP

Be culturally sensitive to the way women dress and behave in public, especially in Muslim countries. Locals will appreciate your efforts. You honor them by keeping to their “house rules.

4) LEAVE IT AT HOME

If you don’t want to lose it, don’t take it. Leave your good jewelry and expensive items at home. you are going with children, not with boyfriend, husband or attending friend marriage try to wear simple cloth. To avoid unwanted attention, wear a fake ring.

5) CURE THE HUNGER

Like every mother, the biggest fear is to see my kids hungry or cold, always remember to bring snacks to the hotel room Offcourse you can always order room service from the night before; but room-service breakfasts at some hotels are ridiculously expensive. Some hotels serve free breakfast in the lobby.
