Today, becoming a parent for the first time is a transition that is well supported and understood by many organisations. But the changes that come with moving from a two-parent household to a one-parent family are much less well understood.
Supporting a parent facing enormous changes at home can feel like a big undertaking. Especially when those changes are hard to talk about, emotionally draining and traditionally viewed as intensely private.
Becoming a lone parent is every bit as life changing and bewildering as becoming a new parent for the first time. Learning how to orient yourself in a new world of multi-home child sharing is incredibly stressful. Working parents often share with me they live in constant fear of childcare arrangements failing, communication breakdowns and family law processes intruding on their ability to work.
They also tell me how important and valuable their professional identity is.
The workplace can be and oasis of normality for parents as they navigate an otherwise a turbulent sea of life changes. Not to mention the often intense pressure to maintain their income and provide for their children, as they move from a two-income home into a life with two single-income homes.
Continuing to work may make all the difference to a lone parent in transition. However, showing up and 'keeping the show on the road' don’t always go hand in hand.
So how do you help your valued staff to stay the course, and hold onto one of the most important things they and their children need – a livelihood and community that will sustain them?
