I’ve decided to expose some of the common lies of the left. Since everything the verbose left says is a lie it’s going to be hard to choose a first topic. But since this is father’s day I’ll go with the lie: “Single mother homes are just as good as those who have a father”. or stated another way, “Children don’t need fathers”
This lie has been around quite a long time. Interest in it perhaps peaked when someone running for president or VP criticized the Murphy Brown example of choosing to bring up a child alone. They twisted the words to say that what he really said was single mothers were bad or something. Single mothers are heroic in my opinion, and that’s because raising a child is a job for two. Many of you will say “two Moms are just as good.” We’ll know better in the future just how true that is. But I have two things to say.
Number 1. Ample evidence is out there that children of even the poorest families that have a Mom and Dad do better then even the most affluent single parent families. Look it up. Plenty of evidence of that.
Number 2. Fathers have different role in raising children. The mother mothers them. She protects, feeds, and comforts and helps children develop empathy. Dad’s job is to prepare the children for the world. To challenge them. To lay down rules. It’s the yin and yang of the two parents that really helps the child fully develop. When my son was joining the Navy, my wife was against this because it’s a hard job, and she worried about him doing well. I said, he had a normal childhood with plenty of yelling, he will do fine in the Navy, and he did.
I was going to list the problems associated with fatherlessness. But my source listed so many, I’ll just let you look at the Psychology Today article yourself.
So, for the sake of your children, work out your problems and stay married, or failing that, work to ensure your children are integrated into their father’s life. Kids need their fathers.
