Being a parent is a tough job. Being a single parent is even tougher. Whether they are part of a "conscious uncoupling" or far removed from their partner, single moms and dads have to take on all the tasks of a two-parent household — cooking, carpooling, cleaning, etc. — without any extra help, and with a smile on their face. Their job is only made more difficult when they are forced to endure a series of somewhat stupid comments from strangers and peers. If you want to make a single parent's life a little easier, try refraining from some of these remarks.
