A single parent is a parent with one or more children, who is/are not living with the child's/children's other parents. The definition of single parenthood may vary according to local laws of nations or provinces.

Single parenthood may occur as a result of loss (death of spouse, separation, divorce, abandonment by one parent), or by choice (single parent adoption, donor insemination, egg donor/surrogate motherhood, choosing to carry to term an unexpected pregnancy and raise the child on one's own).

More than 25% of children in the U.S. live with only one parent (U.S. Bureau of Census, 1997). Research about the welfare of children in single-parent families varies. Many factors influence the outcome of how children fare: parent's age, education level, and occupation, family income, family's support network from friends and extended family members (including the absent parent if available). Further, outcomes in families where single-parenthood is chosen is higher, as the single parent is typically older, has established employment and social supports, and has considered the pros and cons of raising a child alone.
Statistically, children in single parent homes fare worse than those with two parents. In the United States, family structure contributes to five characteristics of a child's well being. These include lower birthrates and higher death rates among infants when there is just one parent. Also, the number of children ages 15-17 in school and in good health is much lower, and the number of children becoming pregnant at these ages is increasing. However, children raised in single parent homes do worse than those with caregivers who can give the child attention in all areas, including academic and emotional health.

here are also signs that children who have gone through a divorce have problems with depression (mood), emotional stress, and difficulties in…...

Hebe then asked “What did I see? What are you talking about?” “Okay, if you won’t answer that question, answer this one, why are there rose petals in our room?” said Arron and ended the sentence with a cold laugh. Then he continued, “You think I don’t know you, these rose petals are here because you are in despair and is in a downcast, whenever you are sad, you would pick petals off roses." “Arron, since you know me so well, then tell me, why I am this way and who made me this way?” replied Hebe quietly. “What is so hard about that question, of course the answer to your sorrow, is me.” then ending his answer with his cold/evil laugh. After he finished his cold act, he walked out of the room, and opened the front door, but was then stopped by Hebe’s voice. “Arron, if you walk out of that door today, you are walking away from my life and you will never be able to enter my life again.” Hebe warned with tears on the verge of falling.

It is the only species in the genus Cocos, and is a large palm, growing to 30 m tall, with pinnateleaves 4-6 m long, with pinnae 60-90 cm long; old leaves fall cleanly leaving the trunk smooth. The term coconut refers to the fruit of the coconut palm. Origins and Cultivation The origins of this plant are the subject of debate with some authorities claiming it is native to southeast Asia, while others claim its origin is in north-western South America. Fossil records from New Zealandindicate that small coconut-like plants grew there as far back 15 million years ago. Even older fossils have been uncovered in Rajasthan,India. Regardless of their origins, coconuts have spread across much of the tropics, in particular along tropical shorelines. Since its fruit is light and buoyant, the plant is readily spread by marine currents, which can carry coconuts significant distances. The Coconut palm thrives on sandy soils and is highly tolerant of salinity and prefers areas with abundant sunlight and regular rainfall (75-200 cm annually), which makes colonising the many shorelines of the tropics relatively straightforward.......

...trilateration and I thought it seemed very similar to the Pythagorean Theorem, being that 3 points are identified between you, the satellite, and the location you are trying to get to which almost forms the shape of a triangle, although it is far more complex than that and is using circles instead of triangles. However the way I saw it is that my position and where I am trying to go would be the legs and the satellite that is directing me to my location from my current position, would have to be a 450 angle, making it the hypotenuse. If one was able to put that into numbers or do some calculate the distance of the satellite, themselves, one would easily be able to calculate your distance using the Pythagorean Theorem. Using this information a GPS is able to detect where you are, how far you are away from your location and the time it will take to get there, which can be incredibly handy, especially for those who do not have the greatest since of direction. After reading this article it should be that the Pythagorean Theorem is much more useful than I thought. It really simplifies the use of maps and a GPS system.   It can be incredibly helpful in many aspects of everyday life....

Choose Your Friends Wisely

...116 – Choose Your Friends Wisely Choosing friends is one of the important decisions of a person’s life. If you choose your friends wisely you are likely to benefit from their good abilities and attributes. On other side, if your friends are bad, they can likely influence you badly. (Pro 13: 20) The consequence of a bearing friendship with bad or stupid ones is even worse than expected. How can we make good friends? God’s worshippers knew the importance of making good friends (e.g. David Ps 64: 2). So if you want to make real or good friends, firstly, you need to get to know their worth for you. This actually means to understand their value in your life. We just read the words of David, who was well aware of the value or worth of true friends. David knew that true friends need to be recognised and accepted regardless of their age, social, educational and financial status. For Instance, the David had a closest friendship with Jonathan, who was about 30 years elder than David. The bible mention the foundation of their friendship as love, which was strange than the love of woman. Even, they are described to start loving each other as themselves (1-Sam 18: 1-4). The Lesson If you judge others (friends) keeping in consideration their age, social, educational and financial status perhaps you are not to be successful in finding good and real friends. At contrast, the chances are you can miss to have many good friends wandering around you. If you have your own......

...came into their shabby little cottage. "My lad," he addressed Ku-nan, "don't be downcast. The Tiger King is afraid of a brave man. As long as you keep your native land and your dear ones in mind, you'll be able to overcome any hardship. Go, my lad. I'll give you a dappled pony to ride on. Good luck to you!" The old Alad lightly kissed Ku-nan on his forehead and disappeared. When Ku-nan went outside he saw a dappled pony neighing in his direction. The skies gradually grew light, and Ku-nan bade his parents goodbye. Taking his bow, arrow-bag and dagger, he mounted his charge and set off on his mission. At first the pony trotted along at a normal pace, but later it broke into a canter, and then a gallop. Faster and faster it went, so fast that Ku-nan could only see the yurts along the road in a blur. After a while the beast slackened its speed. Just then Ku-nan saw near a yurt a wolf just about to attack a little girl. In the nick of time he slipped an arrow into his bow, and let fly. The wolf instantly fell dead on the ground with the arrow in its head. An old woman ran out from the yurt. When she realized that Ku-nan had saved her grand-daughter's life, she invited him in for a bowl of milk-tea. Before his departure she gave him a sheep-bone and said, "Take it, lad, it'll be of some use to you in the future." With her gift in hand, Ku-nan vaulted upon his pony and continued his way northwards. As he trotted along the road he found his way blocked by a broad river.......
