Greenwind is correct. I've been raising my daughter since she was 4 and she is now 17 and she is the smartest and most aware of all her friends. By smart I don't mean in the school smart per sae..but true smarts of knowledge, common sense, great variety of knowledge on many important topics such as health, healing, spirituality, the differences in men and women, the world and so forth. I'm a second father to nearly all her friends whose parents don't spend time with them nor teach them anything of any value at all.
Studies show that kids raised by single fathers end up better than those by single mothers, which is why the courts are granting more single fathers custody in the past 20 years, that is one reason I ended up getting custody of mine, because the courts have recognized that fact too.
