Difference between a mother's love and fathers love lifeslovely 17 kids; California 479 posts

do you think a father loves his kids as much as a mother loves his kids?
in my opinion I believe a mothers love is incomparable. That bond built up over gestation gives it something more. Moms will never forget their kids and would die for them. Dads love their kids as much but on a different level.
im just curious to what people think...

Honestly? Call me sexist, but I agree with you.



However, I suppose it's situational.



I know a few men who are FAR more loving than the mother. Perception is everything :)




ETA: there are a lot of factors to take into account...overall, without reducing things to specifics, I feel like mothers (USUALLY) have a stronger bond.

Based on personal experience, I can't say one is stronger than the other. My husband is a far more dedicated parent than I am, and I feel that I'm pretty good. Not perfect though. But he is.

moms naturally have a stronger bond but i think daddies can have a bond just as strong too :)

My husband is way more loving than I am... he's more affectionate. I love my kids and would die for them but I can see the difference the way we are with the kids...

I know my DH loves our kids just as much as I do. He has a lot more patience than I do too lol. I think it's amazing because he has been our 7 year olds father since she was 18 months and he loves her just as much as I do and as much as a father should! I think it's super important for kids to grow up with both a mother and a father (or something close to those thing) even if they aren't together because each parent brings something different to the table and can help a child to be well-rounded.

I think Mothers & Fathers (well most Fathers) love their children just the same, unconditionally. But I think that each show their love differently.



I know without a doubt that DH loves our children as much as I do... But we do things so differently. I know that our kids will never question whether their Father loves them as much as their Mother.

My daughter's father is not her mother.
Her mother is not her Father.



They play different roles in her life and have different loves and things to teach.



Both are invaluable for her growth.



They are not comparable.

Same level different pedestal. Mom's and dad's show their love in a different way, but I would never say that a mother loves more than the father, or vise versa. It's the same amount, shown different ways.

i dont think its the relationship as much as the individual.




some fathers are dead beat douchbags who dont give a shit, some mothers are just as bad.
I would honestly think that rick and i love logan the same...

I agree that it is completely situational. My SO loves my kids as if he has always been there and was their own father. My kids' bio doesn't give a crap. And I adore my stepson just as much as I do my own kids.

I have no doubt in my mind that my sons father loves him just as much as I do.




Our son was born with cancer, we thought we were going to lose him. We went through the most horrible time ever in his first two years. Im sure we would have loved him just as much if we didnt go through this...but this experience made us face something no parent should ever have to face.
