Many women nowadays choose to have a baby without getting married. They are usually well-off, single professionals who, in their thirties find that work is not everything and so decide to have a baby. They don't want to find a husband and have a regular family but only want to be mothers. They find a partner to be the father of their baby, but the man often doesn't know that the baby will be his.
The women claim they don't need a man to keep a family and bring up a child: they prefer to do it on their own.
Psychologists say that a child can develop normally only in a complete family: with a loving mother and a loving father. The child who grows without a father lacks his love and guidance, and also the role-model that a father provides. This is especially imp
ortant in the case of boys. In some cases such children can even develop serious psychological disorders.
Also the social situation of a single mother and child whose father is either unknown or far away has to be taken into account. Although the years when a single mother would be ostracized are luckily gone, it still happens that children without fathers can feel awkward at school, especially when their peers boast about their own fathers.
The importance of a father in a child's life is unquestionable. Even if the fighters for the emancipation of women claim that mothers can take care of their sons by themselves the situation is a little bit different. Fathers are irreplaceable and their love and affection has much to say in the well-being of children.
All in all single mothers are to be appreciated for their courage but at the same time they should always think twice before taking this crucial decision in their live.
