Single parents have specific problems and they need to be helped in a targeted manner.  The law overlooks them, PS claims

There are 380,000 single-parent families living in Slovakia, but they are overlooked. The law does not recognize the term “single parent”, therefore the state cannot respond to their specific problems. They require address assistance. Lucia Plaváková (PS), chairwoman of the committee of the National Council for Human Rights and National Minorities, drew attention to this on the occasion of the International Day of Single Parents.

“We have to start removing the obstacles that single parents face today and make their living situation easier. The first step is to define single-parent households in the law. Then we can take targeted measures,” emphasized Plaváková.

In Slovakia, only one parent lives in approximately every sixth household. This includes, for example, children abandoned by the other parent, divorced or widowed parents, or even a grandparent who takes care of a grandchild. Up to 85 percent of them are mothers, and a third of these families are directly at risk of poverty.

According to PS, single parents of children with disabilities, who make up approximately two percent of all children, often find themselves in an unfavorable situation.

He points out that there is a shortage of medical examiners in the offices, they have to wait for months for the examinations, and so monetary allowances are far away for many of them. The effort is therefore to integrate children with disabilities and their parents into a society that will respect their needs.
