Parents play the biggest role in our development. Father and Mother plays an important role in our mental, physical, social, financial and career development.

Parents are seen as a child’s role model and support since birth. As a role model, their actions teach children the difference between right and wrong.

As a support, they provide love and care. In addition to love, care, and knowledge, they exert control and provide discipline.

How about for those who are solo parent? How would you imagine their duties and responsibilities?

Fortunately, the government offers support to the solo parent in order to help them when it comes in providing for their child/children.

Under RA 8972, who is he/she and how can he/she take advantage of the said support?
