henry38 - children are not merely the responsibility of their mother. Why do you ignore the voluminous research (much less basic common sense) which shows that children raised in two parent families fare far better than those who do not. Since a child is the product of both an egg AND a sperm, your attitude reflects - in my opinion - just merely more of the problem of sexism that is at the root of these ridiculous characterizations than anything.
When a child is raised it is the responsibility of both parents to shape that child's life in the best way posssible. How, on Earth, can ignore 50% of the equation?
What makes you think I am ignoring anything. I AM A PRODUCT OF MY MOTHER'S DISCIPLINE AND upbringing. Not my fathers even though he was around but at work most of the time. I can confidently tell you if you ask the answer would be same the world over. Mothers do the upbringing not the father and that is a statement coming from a father who is the head of his houseld
