Rona's Story

Rona is a single, working mother of a very bright and energetic 4-year-old boy. With no family or friends to help her, she felt isolated and powerless, desperate for a break or even just a good night’s sleep. Since she worked long hours, her days consisted of going to work and coming home to care for her son. Rona was constantly fatigued and frustrated, frequently becoming aggressive, impatient, and confrontational with those around her, including her son’s teachers. Recognizing her situation and desperate to find help, Rona called The Family Tree’s 24/7 Parenting HelpLine and was immediately linked to a Parents Anonymous® Support Group near her home. She started attending the group and her son began attending (and loves!) the companion program for children. Eight months later, Rona and her son haven’t missed a session. She loves the group and says that she is finally beginning to see the light at the end of what seemed to her a very long tunnel. She has even become friends with one of the other parents in the group, a single mother of three boys.





Lives Changed

Knowledge, education and support are what every parent needs. Unfortunately, parenting today is not the same as it was in my father’s day. The Family Tree really showed me that it’s an honor to be a parent, and a blessing, too.
