Instagram isn’t just a place to look at pictures. It can also be a source of inspiration, education and community. Instagram allows people with similar lifestyles or experiences to connect with each other and feel less alone. This is especially true for single moms or co-parents who may not have a schedule that allows them to meet and connect with other single parents IRL. It can be inspiring and motivating to see other single moms out there living their best lives, even if it’s just through a screen.
