By Lisa LaBelle for Hope After Divorce

Being a divorced, single parent can be overwhelming. If you are the primary custodial parent, you have a great responsibility to teach and raise your children in a positive, well-structured, healthy environment. You set the example; you set the tone in your home for your children to exemplify and follow. Giving your children the attention and support they need is not for the faint of heart. The reality is you are doing the job of two parents, and most of the time, it’s by yourself.

Cupid's Pulse Article: Co-Parenting Teenagers in the Summertime

By Lisa LaBelle

Co-parenting and planning summer visitation with teenagers can be challenging and emotionally draining. Hopefully, plans can be worked out peacefully with your ex-spouse — consider Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe for a celebrity example — but there are many who are not so fortunate. The error comes when parents choose to not give their teenagers a voice in planning their time. They don’t stop to think about the consequences that occur when their teenagers aren’t able to participate in activities and events that are important to them, through no fault of their own.

The solutions are simple. Here are some tips to help with co-parenting during your teenager’s summer plans:

Kristi Yamaguchi “Surprised” by Parenthood

Cupid's Pulse Article: Kristi Yamaguchi “Surprised” by Parenthood

By Shannon Seibert

Prize-winning Olympic figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi has established herself as a well-rounded business woman and is now championing the art of parenthood. A mother to two daughters, Keara, 10, and Emma, 8, she marvels at the pleasant surprises of being a parent. She recently caught up with Celebrity Baby Scoop to talk about The Always Dream Foundation and her experiences being a mom.

CBS: The Always Dream Foundation has been effective in helping kids to look beyond their circumstances and embrace their dreams. How many kids have you helped so far?

KY: “Wow. I have no idea. We’re in our 18th year of existence. I don’t know if I can even guess how many kids have been helped over the past 18 years. I know our current reading program is finishing its second year, and we are in 12 schools and affecting about 1,200 kids. That is just the schools we’ve been in over the past three years.”

CBS: Do you have any new programs for the summer?

KY: “We have our 2nd Annual Children’s Literacy Festival coming up in on May 17th in San Jose called Kristi Yamaguchi’s Reading Adventures at Happy Hallow. We will bring in some guest authors to read, some local celebrities, and the popular Disney Jr. group Choo Choo Soul will be a part of our entertainment as well. That’s our immediate one, and then we have our Annual Gala that helps raise funds for our literacy efforts.”

CBS: How much influence did your mom have on the kind of mom you have become?

KY: “Very much. She has always been my ultimate role model. She was an amazing mom and had time for all of us, my siblings and me. She sacrificed a lot and did a lot. I definitely admire the way she raised us, and I’m looking forward to following her footsteps.”

CBS: How has motherhood changed you?

KY: “I think I’ve become more tentative to dangers in life as far as taking care of myself — because I might get sick, and who would take care of my kids? Obviously, looking after them and thinking of all of the things moms want to do to keep their kids safe, busy, task-happy, and active too.”

CBS: What experiences have surprised you the most?

KY: “I guess how proud you can be as a parent when your child accomplishes something or when I see my two daughters interacting with each other. Seeing the affection they have for each other is so heartwarming. I never thought I could feel so emotional about seeing that sibling love.”

By Kerri Sheehan

Being a new parent can be difficult, but adding a second or even third child to the family adds a new dynamic to the already-established way of doing things. Most couples don’t realize that expanding a household can lead to sibling rivalry, loss of patience, and, for many, marital turbulence. CupidsPulse.com has gathered some of the best tips and advice from our partners to help you out when it comes to that cute little addition:

1. Siblings: If your son or daughter is accustomed to being an only child, there could be a slight shift in personality when baby number two comes along. Make sure to prepare your other children for their new brother or sister so that they will feel just as happy and eager as you do when the baby comes home. (GalTime.com)

2. Parenting Style: It’s important to remember that every child is different. What worked for your oldest son Johnny may not work for little Ava. Be flexible. Rules of Engagement star Megyn Price recently dished that her daughter Grace is so unique that she has to be spontaneous when parenting. (CelebrityBabyScoop.com)

3. Work Together: Nobody said it was easy raising children, but when two parents share or take turns getting up in the middle of the night, driving the kids to school, making dinner, and cleaning the house, it can be much easier to handle. Find out if the division of labor in your house is equal. (GalTime.com)

4. Just Because: It can be easy to forget about your partner once you add children into the mix. What better way to make your man feel important than getting him an unexpected present? Here are ten gift ideas for even the pickiest of guys. (YourTango.com)

5. Say How You Feel: In the midst of providing your children with the care and protection that they need, it’s easy to forget to say those three little words that brought you together in the first place. Here are 20 inspirational ways to say “I love you.” (YourTango.com)
