The purpose of this study is to examine the Psychological Effects of Single Parenthood in Kaine Agary’s Yellow-Yellow and Sefi Atta’s Everything Good Will Come. This study makes use of secondary data sources (Novels and previously published works) in order to elicit information that would assist in filling the overarching gap we found in the literature. Furthermore, we drew on Sigmund Psychoanalysis and Control theories in order to help the study understand the effect of single parenthood on the emotional and social behaviour of children within the family unit. Overall, this study validates the relevance of Psychoanalysis and Control theories because it illustrates that human nature, historical and cultural differences affected the emotional and social behaviour of children under single parenthood.
