6 Things Single Moms Want the World to Know

Mothers take on one of the most difficult jobs in the world every day. There’s no time in and out, no real breaks, and no compensation. Despite worries, fears, and concerns happening at once, they do things single-handedly for the sake of their children. This is twice the case for single mothers.

I’ve seen how single mothers in my circle deal with their family life, be it from personal encounters or social media posts. I only used to think about how difficult it must be for them, but I had no idea how difficult until I became a mother myself. I am not in their shoes for me to say I completely understand what they’re going through, but I don’t think I need to be before I can say I admire their strength and determination.

Have you ever tried solving a riddle in a language you cannot comprehend? No matter how you go back and forth, you will not be able to arrive even at step one of the solution. This is how reading feels like to a non-reader.

I remember my teaching stint in pre-school years back. While some of my 4–5-year-old pupils would excitedly turn the pages of their books when I say, “Please turn your books to page 10,” one of them would do nothing with the book on his table and would wait for me or his seatmate to do it for him. The pupil would also not participate in our alphabet singing and letter-writing activities. While there are other factors that I may not know of regarding this kid, his performance in our classes clearly shows that he is a non-reader.

For the context of this article, a non-reader is “one who does not or cannot read or a child who is slow in learning to read.”

How do we properly introduce materials to a non-reader? Ms. Marifi Navarro, a librarian for more than 25 years, shares her experiences and some tips on how to help non-reader children take a step towards reading and actually loving it!
