Postscript.

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.

Hi there! Thanks for your comment. My husband & I have been checking out your book and intend to purchase one in the very near future. He is always looking for books to recommend to his students (he teaches Math & Science at the junior high level and coaches at the high school level). Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! I look forward to reading your book. In the mean time, blessings to you and your family!

Hey, I'm just some random person who found your blog, but this is so true. I'm majoring in psychology in college and by many psychologists (especially those that follow Freud) the importance of having both a mother and father figure is huge. Without having both of those the child has many issues developing right. Great blog!

Hey Andrew,

This comment is unrelated to this particular post. Thanks for reading through some of my blog entries and sharing your blog and book website. Thanks for your greetings as well.

Seeing as you were an English/History teacher I wonder if you might recommend some good history books from a Christian perspective?
