  • This is bullshit. Research is proving that a childs brain of a single parent is the same as with two parents. Just, like I said bullshit

  • I don’t believe that any of these people care for the child. If you have the time to theorize then you aren’t raising your children.

  • The absence of a father
    1965 25% of black children were born out of wedlock now it’s almost 70%
    A child without a father in the home is 5 times more likely to be poor
    9 times more likely to drop out of school
    20 times more likely to end up in jail
    81% of teen pregnancies come from fatherless homes
    80% of homeless teens come from fatherless homes
    71% of the male population in the penal system fatherless homes
    Four things a father provides protection provision presence praise

    “But I know for a fact that had I had a father, I’d have some discipline. I’d have more confidence. Your mother cannot calm you down the way a man can. Your mother can’t reassure you the way a man can. My mother couldn’t show me where my manhood was. You need a man to teach you how to be a man.” Tupac

  • that is why it is so important to have a good relationship in order to raise children. That is why it is so dangerous and toxic the promiscuity that is defended by the feminist movement and left-wing parties. They want to destroy the family as a social Institution!

  • *me watching this video*


    Edit: My dad died from natural causes, he was 91. So, my mom had to live with 2 kids one 14, one 11. I matured pretty fast, and stopped developing feelings for others because I knew we were all going to die one day. Existential thoughts filled my head. I eventually got over them but, I still have them here and there.

  • the 1 most notable effect of a boy being raised by a single mother is just simply a lessen person than what he would have been if he had a father. Single mothers should be ashamed of themselves for ruining the society.

  • I grew up without my mom and I turned out pretty bad. I don’t think that the emphasis of importance should be placed solely on the father because you make it seem as though mothers are unimportant. I’m already thoroughly convinced that I am worthless after being introduced to “the red pill”. I feel so fucking worthless that I want to die

  • I guess this is an example of how the way you set up your life needs to work for you now, you in the future as well as all the stakeholders including the kids, the spouse, the family, the extended family, your neighborhood, the city, the society, etc. All of these things around us and within us impose constraints on what can constitute a long term solution for how to have a meaningful life. The longer the term the solution works in the better which then also includes environmental change over generations, etc. Which then brings us to the idea of achieving harmony between all these things.

  • here is a question:
    What is the commonest denominator in all “mass shooters” in USA?
    With rare exceptions, they all came from “single mother households”.
    Let that sink in for a moment.

    And yet, “single mothers” in specific, and society in general, continue to insist, pretend and push the ideology that:
    A father is not required
     and that
    children will accept any Tom Dick or Harry as their *father if he loves them*
    Nothing could be more delusional than that presumption.
    An individual yearns for a bond, to know, his or her biological parent(s).
    A “stepdad” or a “Step mother” is NOT their real parent.
    Yet, women keep trying to shove it down their children’s throats.
    NEver worked, never will.
    This “feminism” and “a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle” and all its consequences and its ripple effects, were a very bad idea even to begin withany ideology based and rooted in resentment than moral higher grounds is bound to eventually backfire. Yet they pushed and now this social engineering experiment has gone totally wrongand this is just beginning. In the end, it will bring down the entire western civilization.
    Just Wait and watch.

  • No, single mothers and their wrath they put on society is well documented.

  • this is what I have learn about father figures in education: men in general hate people who do not do well (they do not care about good behaviour). mathematics and sciences are taught mainly by men, and if a kid does not do well but behaves well; male teachers will ignore that kid. they will ensure the kids feels ignored until they either drop out of school or somehow find it in themselves to do well. then only the male teacher will come around. thus it is good to have a male teacher but at the same time it is very risky because their methodology is not to help through the journey because that seems weak and feminine. This goes all the way up to university level, male professors have excellent postgrad students, not because they have done well but because if they don’t they will be ignored; this comes in form of gaslighting etc.. until the student goes into their past recollection of pain and hell breaks loose. hence you find so high suicide rates in great university, there is always a male professor or lecturer behind them pushing that student to the brink; and when they die… nobody can link it back to the male professor, they just go to the next and next. It is so sad watching friends in high school quit and not fully connecting with male teachers; and nobody fully understanding what the hell is wrong. just a tragic thing. if only young men can survive this kind of torture until adulthood and become better themselves. but it does not happen this way. those who succeed become like those who have wounded them and the cycle continues. Law school has the worst of these, especially female tyrant or gay lawyers. It is very interesting to observe ………………………………from afar

  • At one time society tried to make marriage work; now to make divorce work. Society will try and fail to deal with fatherlessness with programs such as Big brother or hiring more male teachers.

  • They should have taken the mike away after she asked her question so she couldn’t interrupt him with ‘mmmhmmmm’ every five seconds.

  • LEt me put this entire video in one short sentence This is bullcrap because i live with just my mum winessed them breakup but as far as i am aware im not dump not emotionally controlled or likely to have failed future relationships but thanks for making me feel terrible:(((((

  • Amazing 5 minutes. Society degenerates without a father. It’s not the guns it’s the lack of fathers. The left should go after that idea instead.

  • I grew up with just my mom. My parents separated when I was 2.5. I find these points to be true except maybe for the one about being closer with my mom…. I think she feels closer to me because she always shares her feelings with me, but I don’t share mine because of fear of being judged and rejected…. It’s pretty one-sided:/

  • I’m just stupid so that’s why I fail school, and I do miss my dad a lot, and I’m jealous that my step dad is with his new family taking care of them, I just want someone to take care of me in a relationship like a mom, I don’t like my mom that much. ����‍♀️

  • My friend who only lives with her mom is closer to her mom than I am with mine, even though I have two parents. But often she gets jealous of my friend who has two parents that are very supportive of her.

  • My mom and my father Breaked up before i was Born. Soon after, she discovered that she was pregnant. She searched for my father to deliever the news, but i don’t know what happen in this moment. I don’t know if they fighted, if my dad didn’t wanted to have another child (He alredy had my brother with my Stepmother) or if he alredy was in another relationship. 8 months later, i was Born and my grandma (wich is a second mom for me) wanted to call my dad to inform of my birth, but my mom didn’t let her do that and forbid every member of my Family to mention his name or give me any information about my father. I’ ve Always wanted to know who was my father and every member of my family agreed that i had the right to know his name, except my mother. Everytime i tried to talk with her about him, she yelled at my grandma, because thought that my grandma planted that Idea in my mind. Everytime i asked Someone of my Family to reveal my dad’s name, they would Always say ”no” because they were afraid of my mom. So i had to search his name online because i discovered that my uncle and my dad where online friends. My Grandma gived me some information about him. I Spent half a year looking for my dad and this was starting to drive me crazy. I started pressuring my mother to reveal his name but it never worked. Days before i finally discover my father’s real name, i started hitting her to see if she would speak up (Wich is something i regret). When the situation was starting to get out of Hand, my grandma finally revealed my father and my older brother’s identities wich was a total shock to me, because i never thoght i had Brothers (he has a younger son). And two days later, she told my mom what she did. Now im trying to make contact with my dad. There are a lot of questions in my mind right now like: Why did they Breaked up? Does he have a happy Life? Would he accept the fact that he has other child? Would my Brothers accept me as part of Their Family?

  • I was raised by a single mom and she never dated anyone else and to be honest I think her divorcing my father was the best decision she ever made! I turned out fine.

  • this guy is a dweeb male who does not understand adoptees but marriage is for children that will become true yet he still loves male over anything. so unreliable. good buye mr. peter

  • All teachers can relate to this: Children (especially boys) from fatherless homes have way more behaviour/discipline issues that children from a two parent household….

  • Like you mentioned, while the single parent life for me lacks a major example of a successful relationship it has also prevented potential for conflict between two parents:) I would take one good one over two crummy ones any day.

  • I feel everyone thinks singel parenting means divorce. My dad is dead, but we dont have any financial problems so I really cant relate.

  • My mother kicked my father out when i was 5 and now shes married with a 24 year old man and shes 49!i see my dad every second the weekend but i miss him so much! When i was younger it doesn’t effects me bc i thought he will come back but when my momma married this little piece of sh*t my hope was gone forever! Every birthday wish i had, every time i saw a shooting star every freaking wish i had went to the hope that my parents are getting together again
