I’ve written many times about the tragedy of single-parenthood. It’s something I know a great deal about, as the oldest son of a single mother (of five kiddos). My mom was and still is Wonder Woman. I had a childhood filled with happiness and much love, and God knows mamma tried her best.
But, the honest truth is that her best was not the best; no single parent can replicate what a child gets and needs from two loving, committed parents.
And, sorry to all of my same-sex colleagues and friends who are parents — as awesome as you are and as much as you love your children, they too are missing out on not having two loving and committed parents — a mom and a dad — to raise them.
Children need and get different things from moms than they do from their dads. There simply are some things a woman cannot teach her sons about being a man — or even just a small boy, for that matter. Same goes for men and their daughters.
But…I’d still rather have children grow up with same-sex parents than in a single parent home. Because there simply is nothing worse that you can do for your children than to raise them as a single parent. Go read Ann Coulter’s book Guilty: Liberal “Victims” and Their Assault on America for all of the staggering statistics that back up this claim.
That’s all pretext for this video. Watch it now. All 38 seconds of it. And be prepared to be broken. It broke me.
I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a Marine or a Drill Sergeant stopped in his tracks like that little boy just did to that Marine. Or to this old Soldier.
I don’t watch the Jenny Jones Show, and didn’t see any more of this segment than this 38 second video. But I know enough to know that this little boy has some obedience and/or disciplinary problems and his mother is at her wits end trying to figure out how to deal with this little boy. And I know that what this little boy needs — what he’s crying out for — is a father. A good man to raise him, teach him, and show him how to be man.
I don’t know the outcome of this video, but I sure hope that Marine took that boy backstage and gave him some kind and direct word, some encouragement, and a healthy dose of love.
Liberalism and Progressivism has waged an all-out assault on traditional family values and morals for decades. They celebrate single-motherhood by placing her on a pedestal as some kind of hero all while creating policies that enable if not out-right-encourage greater rates of single motherhood. According to the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, the birth rate for single mothers in 2007 was 80 percent higher than it was in 1980.
These polices might lead to more Democrat voters and electoral wins…but it’s destroying little boys just like this one.
And no where is this more evident than it is in the black community, where nearly 70% all children are born out of wedlock, mostly being raised by their single mothers with no support (financial or otherwise) from their mamma’s baby-daddies.
