I read that article earlier...interesting.
From the US Department of Health & Human Services. Administration for Children & Families: "Although there are exceptions, children raised in single-parent families are at greater risk of living in poverty and of developing social, behavioral, and academic problems than are children raised in married-parent families."
From The Journal of the American Medical Association: "Children raised in poverty can do well in school and later in life, but they face many more obstacles than children reared in wealthier homes."
From the American Psychological Association, Report to the U.S. Commission on Child and Family Welfare: "Children raised in single parent families are at greater risk for juvenile delinquency, teen pregnancy, poor grades, drugs, dropping out of school, and other trouble. These risks occur even after factoring in differences in income."
If you air your dirty linen in public, expect people to comment on the skid marks!
