Sons need fathers to teach them how to be men. There are some things that moms can't teach sons about, just the same with mothers. I couldn't imagine going bra or sanitary napkin shopping with my dad-both of us would have died from embarassment.
My father is hardworking, kind and he has always doted on me as his only daughter. However, he was a cheater. His infidelity led to me believing that most (if not all) men are unfaithful. You can't imagine how hard it is to shake that conviction.
Sometimes I see mothers winning custody cases when they have no business raising children. I think the courts need to be more mindful of unfit mothers instead of automatically awarding custody to the woman.
Women are given custody more so cause the vast majority of the time its the most logical choice. Although as you surely know most people who have children are hardly good parents in the world and really should not raise children.
I think its important that a child have a mother and a father but if they cant have both they can still grow up and be fine as long as other things are met. Its true or correct in that girls with good relationships with there fathers or a strong male figure who acts as a father is imperative in often how they view they should be treated by other males. They are not longing for say or desperate for male attention or security there "daddy" will always protect them and be the best male they will know in there life until they marry.
Of course yes i realize not all fathers are good same with mothers this was just a generalization and assuming it goes correctly. However general consensus is that the female plays a little more of a role than the father does in both sexes for child development. Its only natural they tend to breastfeed there children their are different bonds and connections they might share.
