my friend's dad left him when he was little and moved to another state. the father now tries to call him and tell him to come over the house for summer break and stuff.. myy friend told me he goes and he just doesnt care for him.... because the father left him when he was little so why would he care for him if the father didnt care for him when he was just a child... i cant imagine why a parent would leave, thats a horrible thing to do... a kid growing up without a parent.... when i later have a kid even if it was accidental i wouldnt leave him if the world was coming down.. animal behavior is completely different... they leave their offspring when they are old enought to swim, fly, walk ect. , dinasours would care for their young until they hatched... but after that some didnt care and even ate their own offspring just so they wouldnt starve
God intended children to have both a mother and a father, for obvious reasons, they need the teachings and love that both bring to the table. I have seen way to many times, the damage that occurs in single parenthood. But unfortunetly for whatever reason, one can find themselves raising a child alone, but it is not the way it should be.
It depends on the how the perents are. If the perents have done a good job and have never gave up then you know what i respect them, kids are not an easy job. But then again I have met perents that are sing;e and just don't know what to do and can't sopport all the problems. For them then idk what to feel. But respect is on my list.
I dont really have an opinion on single mothers/fathers, other than i respect them a great bit because its hard raising children being with their father and having support. I cant even imagine doing it on my own. They should be admired and respected, atleast the ones doing the best the can, not looked down upon.
