Being a parent is probably the best feeling that a person can ever have in the lifetime. It is said that only blessed people get the opportunity of parenting. Holding the baby for the first time in the arms is truly a heavenly feeling that the parents experience. The mother takes so much pain to give birth to a child. In the bringing up of a child, both gather and mother play vital role.
While a child learns the basics of how to lead a life of worthiness, it is the father who plays the role of a paradigm to the children. It is with the mother that a child takes its first steps and with the father, plays the first outdoor game. Kids also need productive time from their parents and this time is very essential for their proper development. In modern day world, many of the parents get separated or divorced due to number of reasons. Though parents can lead a happy life even after divorce, the worst sufferer of that become the children of the family.
Though one may not understand, there is a huge different between families with both the parents and with single parent. The difficulties faced by the single parents may vary depending on the circumstances, but there are also common experiences that are shared by most single parent families. The difference between single and dual parenting differs in many ways, but the most common difference occurs in dealing with the kids. In a dual parent house, both of them take the decision regarding the household tasks; but in case of single parents, they need to take the decisions alone.
This sometime engages even the kids. Kids having only one parent from a very early age doesn't face much problem as compared to the kids who witnessed their parents get separated in a later life. This also impacts their psychology. The divorce of the parents may have multiple impacts on their kids.
These are briefly discussed below:-
Kids with single parent may lead easily in unethical ways, as they lack the needed guidance. people with evil intension may easily mold them to be a part of illegal activities, as for a mother or father alone, it's not possible to provide proper care to their kids.
Kids of divorced parents may feel the emptiness in their lives after seeing other kids playing with their mom or dad. This feeling sometime turn into a longing for the loved ones, and in such cases, kids may be lead into destructive ways by others.
The demands of income earning, child raising and housework mean the single parent may have little or no time for themselves.
A recent study reveals that after the divorce of the partners, the kids become more stubborn as they miss the love and affection in their family. After separation, the child may feel torn between their two parents and feel they must 'pick sides' – this is especially the case if the parents are hostile towards one another. So being a father or a mother, it is our prime responsibility to provide our kids an environment full of love, affection and security where they can prosper like anything.
