Abstract
Samohrano majčinstvo je tema socioloških i drugih istraživanja, jer sve je značajniji broj žena koje samostalno odgajaju djecu. Kako bi se utvrdilo iskustvo te specifičnost samohranog majčinstva provedeno je kvalitativno istraživanje u kojem je sudjelovalo deset sugovornica. Analizom rezultata došlo se do uvida u doživljaj i iskustvo roditeljstva razvedenih majki i udovica. Za obje skupine je karakterističan težak život na početku ulaska u samohranost, zahtjevna uloga samohrane majke, borba sa usklađenošću privatnog i poslovnog života, dobar odnos s djecom te zadovoljstvo trenutnim načinom života. Uloga samohrane majke nosi sa sobom stres, pritisak i odgovornost, ali unatoč tomu samohrane majke ističu i pozitivnu stranu takvog oblika roditeljstva. Rezultati istraživanja su pokazali da se za razumijevanje iskustva i položaja samohranih majki mora uzeti u obzir vrijeme ulaska u samohranost i trajanje samohranosti, a ne treba zanemariti da se život razvedenih majki razlikuje od života udovica.

Parallel abstract (English)
Single motherhood has been a topic of sociological and other researches because the number of mothers who decide to raise children without the help of their partners is increasing more and more. In order to determine the experience and specificity of single motherhood a qualitative research was conducted on ten female interviewees. The analysis of the results led to an insight into the experience of parenthood of divorced mothers and widows. Both groups are characterized by hard life at the beginning of the single parenthood, demanding role of a single mother, efforts to coordinate private and professional life, good relationship with children, and satisfaction with the current lifestyle. The role of a single mother includes stress, pressure and responsibility, but despite that single mothers emphasize that the single parenthood has some positive sides as well. The results of the research showed that in order to understand the experience and situation of single mothers, one has take into consideration the time of entering the single parenthood and its duration, and besides it should be noted that the life of divorced mothers differs from that of the widows.
