There has been a wide variety of emotions and viewpoints about the impact of single parenting on kids. In this one-hour Choice Chat radio show, from 2010, I talked with two experts about the impact it can have on a child to grow up without a father:
- Peggy Drexler, author of Raising Boys Without Men. See my Q&A with her here.
- Harvard educator Rick Weissbourd, author of The Parents We Mean To Be: How Well-Intentioned Adults Undermine Children’s Moral and Emotional Development. I quoted him about the impact of single parenting in my original book “Choosing Single Motherhood: The Thinking Woman’s Guide.”
