Ditching Your Comfort Zone: Single Mothers, Mr. right?
At the age of 26, over 40% of my female friends with children are single mothers. This is a drastically growing trend, especially within minority groups. This article raises great questions about women needing a man to raise a child. From personal experience, yes a male is needed. At my adulthood (18), that’s when personal issues started to arise from coming from a single mother home, with fewer than 5 encounters with my father.
Issues arose mainly within relationships. I honestly did not know how to treat women…so fortunately/unfortunately the first few serious girlfriends where testing grounds for me to figure out what a man is within a relationship.
One good that came from coming from a single mother home, is that I was able to define what a man is to me and live by that. So there are plenty of success stories of people coming from single parent homes, but the point I’d like to make is: if children come from happy homes with mother and father, they innately pick up some of those positive qualities.
I’ve started the Divine Authority Foundation to address some of the issues of boys being raised in single mother homes.
