Are father's not just as important as mothers? What makes one better than the other? Why?
Father is important that plays the role when teenager is growing, he teaches the concept of life, sociality
Fathers are extremely important. Both parents are equally as important. It is partly because of the lack of fathers and broken families that kids do not respect women today. They are angry and they don't know why--but it's because they need their fathers.
They are not better - both are needed for maximal odds of a good outcome for the kid.
Children raised by a single mother are 2-3 times more likely to: be held back a grade, drop out of school, become mentally ill, become an addict, join a gang, commit suicide, commit murder, go on welfare, have an illegitimate child, be drunk.
For two parent married mother father families, the odds of any of these for their kids is about 10%. For a single mother's children, it is 25-30%.
And most telling, per the Regernus study, two "married" homosexuals raising opposite sex children have kids who have WORSE outcomes on nearly all of these metrics. So a boy raised by two lesbians does worse than raised by a single mother, as is a girl raised by two homosexual men. The life outcomes are almost as bad as a single mother for girls raised by lesbians and boys raised by homosexual men.
This means it isn't one parent or the other that is better - it is the balanced, stable example of one of each that maximizes their odds of success.
Mother's are there for emotional support and nurturing. Father's are there when you fall down and get hurt, to pick you up and tell you to shake it off, to make everything ok and to make you tuff. But both are equally needed in a child's life.

The importance of fathersDo you believe that growing up with a father in your life is imperative to growing up well rounded? If so is it better to have a deadbeat uncaring father that is around or would it be better not to have one at all?

My Pops taught me how to stand up for myself. How not to take crap from anyone, how to dream big, as well as to pursue those dreams with vigour and a fervent heart. Happy Father's Day, Dad!

Is the unit of a family still relevant for us in the 21 Century?What does the word family conjure up for you? Is it really about life and love? Or more like adults exercising their lifelong need for power which they never obtained in their worklife?
