Answers article stated: "It is so important for children to have a stable home life. In a broken home it is difficult for children to find a sense of security because experience shows them that what seemed stable and good fell to pieces and left them feeling empty, yet full of questions. Growing up in a broken home may also cause children to have difficulty in future relationships and cause them to struggle with the issue of trust." Over the past 30 years or so there has been an abundance of single parent homes and clearly the results are not good. What are your thoughts on this epidemic?

Great points Express10. People pop up pregnant with no education/skills, support of themselves, let alone providing for a child. No background on the father. They are not aware of goal setting, teaching values/morals,providing or example setting.
Dashing Scorpio:you are thinking of a family unit. I mean get pregnant nation. No knowledge of the man (is he a abuser/molester/provider). Children with multiple fathers, w/no trade/education. No loving environment or structure. 4 kids, 4 fathers.
I have not heard of anyone (championing) such an environment that you've described. Such people in these situations do stupid things without considering future consequences. I can't imagine any woman dreaming of having 4 kids with 4 fathers.
You are lucky DashingScorpio. I have actually come across at least two of these types and promptly distanced myself because I don't agree with that nonsense. One high school classmate who was supportive of this had 3 by 3 fathers + is struggling now.
Express10, That sounds crazy to me! I can't understand why people do things that lead to poverty and struggle. Every child deserves to be brought up in a stable environment. There's more to being a mother than having babies.
One man's opinion! :)
I could not agree with you any more DashingScorpio. It's truly sad to come across these types of people because they are draining potential from themselves + their kids. My hope is that the good parents of the world outnumber the bad.
