    agreed :eek::eek:

    But that doesn't mean the parent is capable of doing it.

    I think a lot of parents are afraid to do it! Afraid of their children and afraid of "child abuse" allegations.

    One of Thatchers biggest disasters was removing the ability for a teacher to give them a smack in schools and then of course we have that Denise Robertson Agony Aunt saying that under no circumstance should we ever smack a child.

    Thatcher ? May have had a bit to do with it but these two very agitating Labour gonks from the eighties take the biscuit :

    I quote from Guido Fawkes website..

    'It was Erin Pizzey, the founder of the first refuge for battered women, who in the late eighties identified Labour's then radicals Harriet Harman and Patricia Hewitt as dangerous feminist ideological enemies of the family. Harman and Hewitt were in those days leading lights of the loony left's radical feminist wing, arguing in pamphlet after pamphlet that "It cannot be assumed that men are bound to be an asset to family life, or that the presence of fathers in families is necessarily a means to social harmony and cohesion." After decades of agitation, which influenced social policy as well as social workers, their attack on men and their role in modern life has reached its nadir in Tottenham. Local MP David Lammy last week: "We are seeing huge consequences of the lack of male role models in young men's lives.." Harriet Harman is the ideological single-mother of those gangsta rioters.

    There is indeed many difficulties that have come due to lack of a male role model, a father figure. Feminism has played a huge part of this - sisters wanted to do it for themselves. I think here we see the result.

    There are a lot of fine women out there, indeed they are but there are also a lot of fine men who are becoming less and less represented in society and whose role is being stamped on as if they are an outdated idea.

    Let's be sure of something though although I agree with your comments there are lots of single mothers (through no choice of their own) who make fantastic mothers!

    excuse my lang but <profanity removed by Moderator>
    2 parents 1 parent ,it should make no difference.the only thing it tells me, if this is what some think, is that women are incapable of bringing up kids with out a man about.
    i was brought up with just my mom a brother and 2 sisters, i can tell you now i dont get the urge to do things that others do.my up bringing was fine.
    if i was out of order believe me my mom made sure i knew it . 1 parent or 2 parents without discipline and respect it makes no difference

    Although I would agree that one good parent is a much better state of affairs than 2 bad ones or one bad and one good.

    In general children that are lacking a same sex parent tend to suffer from identity problems,this not being such a problem if they have a same sex role model available.

    identity problems
    you are joking right?
    a role model isnt whether its a man or a woman .a role model is a role model whether they are female or male ,no matter whom they are role models for,male or female.
    its to do with right and wrong only

    Get yourself beyond the picket fence of your own upbringing. Millions of us had good upbringings..that has nothing to do with this.

    Was your mother terrified of you ? Of course not. Go to Tottenham for a night and see what real life is like beyond your telly and computer.

    3 out of 4 people had previous convictions....

    So i was right, a bunch of criminals used this situation as a chance to trash stuff.

    I bet the people who defended these crooks feel silly now.

    "they werent criminals it is societies fault" yeah yeah :D
