3 Ergonomic Gifts for Single Parents This Mother's Day

05 May 2022

An ideal family in our heads includes a mother, father, and their children all together in one home. Not all children are born into ideal families. Some are divorced or separated even before the bun pops out of the oven. Some parents eventually separate during the marriage. Some stay together but are not in the best arrangement—for instance, a battered parent or a partner who unapologetically cheats. Some have financial difficulties which ultimately cause the breakup of the family. While there are those who are widowed and are left with their children and no partner.

There are many factors as to why children are left with a single parent. No matter what the reason is, the trauma it gives to the kid is indescribable. It transcends through different phases of the kid’s life and affects his or her relationships and adulthood in general. A parent left alone will assume the roles of a mom and a dad in the traditional sense. He or she would have to provide financially for the family. He or she would have to take care of the household. He or she would have to be present in their kids’ lives while working extra hard to provide financial stability for the family.

A single parent would have to beg off in social engagements, either his or her schedule does not allow it or his or her budget can’t afford to do so. A single parent might get the hate of his or her kids because she or he won’t always be present in every school activity or milestone in the kid’s life. A single parent might experience burnout and would have no choice but to continue working because he or she can’t abandon the children.

With everything said, it can’t be described in words how difficult it is to be a single parent. A single dad and mom might have different experiences. We all know that we still live in a patriarchal society and moms might experience being judged for not having a partner with them. A mom might have fewer opportunities for career growth or promotion just because she’s a woman. It’s hard to fill up the shoes of an absentee parent, and we’re here to give a salute to all single parents out there.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we invite everyone to celebrate as well the single parents, to recognize their struggles, and to help them be given equal opportunities for a happy, free life. As children of single parents, we should show them how much we love them this Mother’s Day.

Aside from a sentimental gift, maybe a letter or a piece of art you did by yourself, why not give a practical gift as well? Something that can add value to their lives, and something that can give them the convenience, comfort, and luxury they so deserve. We suggest that you hand them over a piece of ergonomic furniture. Not only do ergonomics assure that they have a comfortable work experience, the science of it is proven to promote good health and boost work productivity. They would make good use of their time and have extra time for themselves, their children, and friends. Who knows they might even meet someone who can be their new partner in life just because they were blessed with a hassle-free way of working.
