Thank you SLD, I agree with you 100% I've see families with more than five children being / been raised by a single parent... and ALL the kids turned out to be positive citizens.<quoted text>
Thats not true. My Mother-in-law raised 5 children by her self, when my husbands father died in 76. 2 girls and 3 boys. all 5 grew up hard working and good people. They finished school got jobs and know have families of there own. Im not sure what she did right, but I know that im lucky. So 1 parent homes do not always make for bad kids. Sometimes they hang out with the wrong kids at school,bus,malls and so on. What your kids do when you are not around would shock you. Remeber the things you did when you were young. True we did not go out and kill someone but we all have done things we should not have.
TOM must be a Clinical Psychologist... because he/she/it attempted to correct me in another story. But considering what I typed in that story... I chose not to respond to him/her/it... because I didn't want to "defeat the purpose".
Again, I couldn't agree with your post more!!
