I agree. I have two sisters (both biological). I don't drink, and my sisters rarely do. None of us have done drugs (other than my youngest sister experimenting with weed for a month, 2 years ago). My mom taught us what we didn't want to be, with her actions.

If that's true than why do so many men from single parent households end up in prison?

Bad father is worse. You can at least have good male role models in the place of no father.

they cooould but if the mom is a good parent and makes sure to raise her child with good morals and thinking it would most likely not be the case and if they do take after the father and were raised more with the mother it would most likely be jsut a fase and theyd come back to what they know is right.

Did you have a dad? Do your kid/s have their dad?

Bad father is worse. Id rather my daughter have one good example, then one good and one bad example.

Quoting Glo♥:" Well depends on what you mean by bad father. As in abusive (physically, emotionally, and/or sexually) or a dead beat that never gave a f**k?"


How is a dead beat dad that never gave a f**k any different from emotionally abusive?

I'd so much rather be raising a child on my own than raising one with a bad father.

You need to do some serious research in child development then. The numbers don't lie, more men end up in prison from single mother households than from any other family type. By your logic, that wouldn't be the case.

DD's father is a terrible person. I'm glad he doesn't want shit to do with her. Instead she has an awesome male figure in my SO and male relatives.
