As common as a single-parent family is in the modern day, it would be wrong to say they don’t function as well as or achieve things as a two-parent family. However, studies do suggest that children raised with both mother and father do have certain advantages over children raised in households with one parent.
Studies also suggest that children without one parent show an increase in mental and behavioural disorders as well as criminal activities and substance abuse. On the other hand, a child raised in a healthy family gets to experience the lasting benefits of a strong family.
