I am not a single parent. I do the parenting work of two people. Therefore, I am a double parent. I take the view that those who parent as part of couple (a parenting pair) are hemi-parents. That is to say, they are one half of a parenting pair because they have a parenting partner with whom they share parental responsibility.
Every parenting situation – double parenthood or otherwise, is as unique as the individuals, family members, and social circumstances of which it is comprised. While parenthood presents challenges and rewards to all parents, double parenthood not only comes with those very same challenges and rewards – it has its own unique set, too. For the most part, double-parenthood is very similar to partnered parenthood, but it is also very different – for the parents, and for the children.
The Double Parent hope to encourage any and all
single DOUBLE PARENTS to be proud of themselves as they raise their kids because I think we are all doing the best we can and that having only one parent around doesn’t need to be a loss. I hope to shatter the myth and of the broken home and help fellow DOUBLE PARENTS replace any stigma or shame with pride.
Here, as well as on facebook and Twitter, I hope to explore and discuss the concept and reality of double-parenthood, and the life we lead as human beings. I hope the discussions contained herein will interest ALL parents, and ALL people.

As a double parent, I am very careful where I spend my money. In these uncertain economics times, we all should be thinking twice about how, where and why we spend our money.
