Maternal Single Parent Family

Single parenthood following divorce often brings with it a decrease in the mother’s
involvement in her children’s upbringing, as demonstrated in a study by Bawin-Legros. This is
explained by the mother’s emotional overload. Single parenthood is slowly turning from a stigma into
a common feature, from abnormal to normal. The most consistent argument in this regard is that more
than a quarter of families in Romania are single-parent families. When families become single-parent
families as a result of divorce or separation of parents, the ties between the child and the parent with
whom he or she does not live permanently tend to break down in a very large number of cases.
