Why indeed, and who said they aren't? As a father of three, one who is Master's holder in Or. and two going through collage now, I am proud to have had a hand in raising three outstanding citizens, and proud of my wife, their mother for her role in raising them. And I can tell you that she takes her title as a "Mother" very seriously, in addition to the other things she did/does as a career. She always put the family first, so in addition to being a mother, she is also a graphic designer. So, who is holding her back? She would say no one.Why shouldn't daddies be proud to have that title forced on them as the only thing of meaning they do?
Raising well adjusted, focused, and centered children to be productive, successful citizens in today's world is a tough job. And it takes BOTH parents IMHO. Now is that to say that single parents can't succeed in this? No, but that makes it harder, and the odds are against the future success of the child.Because it isn't. That's why. And the same applies to women.
