Research on cause and effects of growing up in a single parent family. Studies show that it 's more common for the children to be lonesome and feel they are distance from the people around them. Children feel like they are more independent and aware because they already know that living without one of their parents, life will be significantly more difficult. If you 're a child only with a mother it 's more likely for you to be uncomfortable around men, while growing up because they are not used a father or male figure. They grow up without a fatherly role model to show them basic men activities, including hunting and fishing and so on.
If a person is going to have more children they should be able to support them. A child is not at fault of his parents. Mr. Walker also says that “many deadbeat parents are homeless, and even a greater percentage are poor.” Again that is understandable, but using a proposal like the “3 strikes” proposal would not only help the child but would also help the deadbeat parent obtain employment. There will more than likely never be an easy solution to the issues this country faces with child support. However the new proposals help children with deadbeat parents have a better shot at life.
It seems that these benefits have more to do with the importance of fathering roles than solely having a second person parenting. This seems like enough evidence to support the importance of fathers but lesbians and other single women still seem ready to take these benefits away from their own children. Men parent differently from women and also contribute differently to the development of their children. Fathers relate best through their activity with the children and generally derive different responses from their involvement. *Children usually associate their fathers with the activities they enjoy doing with them.
Even though gay parents argue the children are exposed to their fair share of traditional male and female relationships, these may be somewhat censored as the visiting child is not part of that family and most families tend to keep certain things within the family.

Children that derive from single parent homes may not be aware of the things that they are missing out on in the beginning, but as they grow older, they may easily become aware of the things that they do not like about their current situations. They deserve the same opportunities as children with both parents have. In conclusion, although every parent, whether the parent/parents use the traditional parenting style, has the potential to properly raise his or her child.
A Fathers Perspective According to many the custody of a child should be determined with the best interest of the child in mind. However, it is not easy for a judge to make such an important decision in such a short amount of time with limited information. Smith (2004) stated that, the simple fact of being a mother does not indicate a willingness or capacity to render a quality of care different than that which a father can provide. Some might argue that what Reynolds (2004) calls deadbeat dads, or in other words fathers who refuse to pay their child support, are often times confused with Turnips, who are ex-spouses who can not afford to pay child support. One example of a turnip is a father who is in prison; he is obviously not making money while he is on the inside.
368). There is a real easy explanation for this problem, it is the simple fact that two parents together make more rules and are more likely to stick by those rules than single parents are (Curtin et al. 368). Single parents are not able to show the same emotions as married couples can, because the love between a mother and a father plays an important part in a family. Children learn how to love from their parents, but if both parents are not there to teach them how to love, their love might be somewhat one-sided (Curtin et al.
There are also cases of the women not wanting the children as well. But we do not want to focus on these people, we are looking strictly at cases where both parents desire custody of the children. The fact is there are more single mothers than fathers, and when it comes to cases where both parents want the child, the mothers are more likely to win custody than the father. So we must determine why this is. When looking at recent statistics you can see that 52% of single mothers are below the poverty level, where only a little over 20% of single fathers fall below the level.
