English term or phrase:single parent household / single parent
On a letter stating the family background of an individual: "She was raised in a single parent household" (i.e. she only had a mother or only a father to raise her, but since it's not specified which she had, I'm not sure how to word it). Also: "Because of the way she was raised, she is confident that she can effectively raise her own children as a single parent." Can one use the terms "mère célibataire" or "mère non-mariée"?
