Hi Mathews,

   You are right. Single parenting is becoming a worldwide phenomenon in contrast to the ordinary and normal parenthood that we used to know.

The traditional conception of parenthood is that of both father and mother raising and teaching their child or children in a regular family nucleus.

Single parenthood in the long run for sure will have a very far-reaching implication to our traditional conception of the family as well as on how we raise our children.

The same will have an impact on the physical, psychological and emotional growth of the child in comparison with having both father and mother in one’s personality development.

Financially or economically speaking, there will be a financial or economic hardship if you are the only one raising your kids.

Further, the child needs a good role model during his or her growing or younger years which a single parent most often than not cannot give unlike when both father and mother are around and shares the responsibility and joy of parenthood.

I totally agree with you Arnold,kids are better with both parents,but sometimes one parent does not want responsibility,making it extremely hard on the single parent ,who do an amazing job.
