This is what I meant to include in my last post. One of the ways that some people think they know better than the past is in the choice of single parenthood. That doesn't mean people who have to be single parents because of loss of partner. If they're widowed or deserted that's one thing. But it seems some individuals set out to be single parents intentionally. They do not want a partner. And they might be forgetting the saying, "It takes a village to raise a child." Girls need a father, boys a mother, I believe. I had no sister, and was glad when we had a daughter so that our sons have one. I do realize it's not for me to tell others how to live, but we can all have opinions. Mine is that there is enough work for two in raising a child, and the need for both a male and female to bond with. It's all part of the two genders valuing and respecting each other.
