On today’s episode, we're talking with single parent coach Jay Skibbens. Jay, a single dad of two, has tons of knowledge on dealing with the stress of single parenthood, and I’m so happy he came to chat with us and share his perspective as a Dad. As we all know, parenting can be a challenge, especially when you’re trying to do it solo. Jay and I covered exhaustion, playtime with our kids, and self care - we had so much to talk about we almost ran out time! Overall, we’re here to help you manage parenthood no matter what your situation is, and Jay gave some amazing advice on how to do this.  After the episode, I’ll be chatting with everyone about we learned on our UM Club Facbook page!
