    Great advice. I spent decades living with debt until I took charge of my money and became debt free.

    How is this advice different from what you’d tell a two-parent family?

      Much of the advice is the same. However, it deserves special emphasis for single parents, who are operating without the financial back-up of a spouse. For example, learning to say no to children can be especially challenging for single parents who feel obligated to make up for the absence of a missing parent.
