    One parent families are family groups in which there is only one parent with children. This term is new. Long time in the literature and in wider circles for these types of families, which are not of yesterday, but there are long, almost always, could shake the terminology like "single mother families", because this form is usually related to women, although there are species in which only the father, then, terminology such as "incomplete" families. However, these terms are the discrimination and labeling, so that later Unfinished from their use and accepted the concept of "one parent families". Again, on the other hand, is still such blasphemous names can meet.

    There are a lot of parents who are divorced today, but I don't think it's appropriate to call them a "one-parent" family at all.  After all, if they do what they should the children do have two parents, in spite of the fact that they're separated.  For that matter, children of never-married parents have two parents; and calling it a "one-parent" family isn't appropriate.

    Custodial and non-custodial parents, as well as the courts, could all use a little more awareness that children have two parents, whether or not they live together (and act accordingly).

    So true Lisa. smile my children are quite aware they have two parents and will eventually have a new step-parent. They are not the least bit worried about their place in our family. big_smile
