Chris is a singe father who is trying to work and raise three small children. His wife was killed 2 years ago in a traffic accident. After the initial shock and out-pouring of support from friends and neighbors, Chris found himself alone with all the responsibilities and very unsure of himself. He would like to meet other men who have the same problems but cannot find any groups, even though he has been told about several men who are in the same situation. He tells you he is not sure what the best method is for disciplining his children, whom he describes as "good kids". Sometime he feels he is to lenient with them, and at other times he is afraid he is unnecessarily strict with them. A local women's health center has groups for bereaved single parents, but Chris believes those would not be open to him."It would be all women, wouldn't it?" he asks. In addition,he is having a hard time at work balancing the responsibilities there with parenting responsibilities at home. He wants to do a good job and get the promotions so he can support his kids through college, but he needs to be home in the evening, or someone does, and I don't think that is always well received at work."
