To Klopper...if you're so "affected" by the women who are asking for advice and/or support about the situations that they are in, then exactly why are you taking part in this forum?

Parents of boys without Dad in their life

I really have to say that this post infuriated me. As a single mother of 2 young boys, who is divorced from their father, reading your comment was rather difficult. I do not speak negatively about my child's father, as I feel that the fact that he abandoned the family after years of marriage will show them enough. But for you to assume that it is the fault of the mother that things are not always "friendly" with the father, I seriously think you should think before you speak. You do not know what situations these women are in, and unless you're a single mother, yourself, perhaps you shouldn't judge on such a sensitive subject.

Being a single parent is hard for children of both genders. Especailly is the other parent decides to not be a part of their lives.

Does a boy need a Dad? Of course. In my opinion, no one can teach a boy how to be a man better than a man. Preferably, that should be his own father. All Dad's should man up. It is good that most do. It saddens me to hear of stories where a parent doesn't care about their kids. Mom or Dad, it's just sickeningly wrong.
