Meeting the Unmet Needs: Strategies to Meet Expressed Concern of Single-parents
Fanny W. C. L. LIN
Emerging from two-parent family into single-parent family infers a change in family structure and members of the family need to take up new roles. Guidance and support are needed in view of the changes to singleparents and their children. Based on empirical data, some unmet needs of single-parent families are identified and confirmed. Reaching-out for singleparents, advocating their rights and developing the strengths of family members were found to be feasible to meet the unmet needs. Further steps to enhance adjustment and progress of single-parent families were suggested.
