Presenter Jag Singh discusses the issues affecting single parenting with his guest, single parent Ron Kiddell from Stifford Clays on the Inspiration Zone. Be sure to tune in on Sunday the 7th February at 3.00pm.
Britain has more single parents than almost any country in Europe. Ron had many challenges to contend with when he found himself with three children to bring up on his own.
He talks of the challenges he faced as a single parent and how he motivated himself and managed to get his life back into shape with the right mentality and attitude.
Many single parents who are struggling and finding it hard to cope suffer in silence because (i) they are not sure to whom to turn for help, (ii) they are not confident to reach out and (iii) they do not know about Gingerbread, a great UK charity set up specifically to assist single parents.

A single parent heads 25% of families with dependent children nationwide
There are around 2 million single parents in the UK. One in four families in Britain with dependent children is headed by a single parent. The majority of single parents in Britain – two out of three — are working.
Single parents by and large do a brilliant job but paying the bills and juggling work and family life on a daily basis on your own can be very challenging.
Jag Singh talks to Ron on this very emotive and motivational interview about the great steps Ron has taken to get his life back in order while caring and being responsible for three young children all on his own.
As usual, Jag plays motivating and inspiring Punjabi, English and Bollywood music throughout the program. Also don’t forget to buckle up for the weekly motivation ‘gee-up’ provided by some of the most inspirational speakers of our time to to make ready for a fresh new week.
So, log in, tune in, relax and prepare to experience another great dose of inspiration on the I-Zone with Jag Singh on Gateway 97.8 at three o’ clock on Sunday afternoon.
Sunday just wouldn’t be the same without it!
