i dont know, i havent heard about such studies but i wont ake such decisions. there lots of families which consis of mother and father and children there are very happy, it' the matter of parents and theit attitude to their children. i know some families of two dads where children look very bad, they dont care of them at all, so to compare such things is unfair, but of course if 2 people are responsible and reliable then the child will be happy and grow up a great person.
I think that the role of a father is absolutely important on all stages of a child's development. A father is not only a parent, it is a friend, a mentor and the model for imitation. Even Sigmund Freud claimed that after the age of 3, children began to identify themselves with their fathers, replicated their facial expressions, jestures and behavior. In this case a child takes an image of the father as a basis and follows it in the proccess of self-development. Moreover, according to the recent statistic researches, the children, who were brought up in gay families have more adequate self-esteem, are more self-confident and less subjected to stress than the children, who were brought up in heterosexual families.
Nice and wonderful, pretty thoughtful words I have read just right now. "the more the father involved in the upbringing process, the more successful the child will be after all". So here is the real deal... and I will explain my personal opinion so you will be able to see that I am right. i have seen so many examples in traditional heterosexual families, where the father was really strict and demanding to sons, so they managed to grow up into the intelligent and thoughtful adult persons (maybe not in all spheres, but in the case of the education and financial eagerness - completely). So the life gives a lot of similar examples and it is pretty obvious - the kid has to be raised by both parents.
Friends hello, interesting topic. It is unequivocal that our behavior and mood affects our children !!! Children are our mirror and reflection. I know this not by hearsay. Of course it's not always possible to be in a good mood, joking ... everything happens in life, but you should explain to your child what is happening, why you can not have fun at the moment with him. Children learn from their parents, you need to try to make sure they learn from you something good, everything is best for you for your child.
