The US Bureau of Census relates:
1300 new stepfamilies are forming every day.
Over 50% of US families are remarried or re-coupled.
The average marriage in America lasts only seven years.
One out of two marriages ends in divorce.
66% of those living together or remarried break up, when children are involved.
80% of remarried, or re-coupled, partners with children both have careers.
50% of the 60 million children under the age of 13 are currently living with one biological parent and that parent’s current partner.
Fixed it. Daddy didn't carry the baby in his womb and Daddy didn't create the biological tie that only biological infants and mothers can possibly experience. Singing to mommy's belly bump is not the same.
An involved Dad is essential to the mom and greatly superior to any other male interacting with the infant, but he is no substitute for the biological mom. The dad's best role is supporting the mom until the infant is gradually weaned and is toddling around. Dad's role and attachmeng grows over the months and years.
To an infant, there is no substitute for the individual in whose womb the infant grew and whose breast milk and body scent are by far the most natural place to attach.
IMHO, this article is correct and very important. I was lucky enough to have a stay at home Mom while I was small and it meant stability and security as I navigated those first few years. Motherhood is the Most Important Job there is, along with Fatherhood.
I, too, was raised in an Age and in a family of Christian values, where a nurturer was available throughout the day and night. Four kids, all within 8 years. All productively working, no drug problems or other destructive addictions, no arrests or convictions, all at least nominally Christian.
My parents were hardly perfect, but held a level of values which transcended their faults.
I have to relate the results to the environment.
