Single Parent: Corey Dade Talks Single Dad Challenges On HuffPost Live (VIDEO)

It's no surprise that single parenting is tough. And in a HuffPost Live segment that aired Thursday, journalist Corey Dade opened up about its particular challenges.

"When you know that you're a single parent... there's no one else to run things by. If your daughter is sick and you can't figure out what's going on, there's no one to ask -- at least, in the same household," he said. "Before you even take a step, you approach everything as if everything weighs on you as far as the decisions you make as a parent."
