I have a friend who is very successful because she manage to be a father and mother on her two children. She told me that she doesn't want a man to her life just to fill the emptiness for her children. She can do the responsibilities as a father and mother. Do you agree with this?

its all about contentment i guess.. if a woman is happy with what she has and knows that she doesnt need anybody to fill in gaps in her life, then she can do it on her own.. as for your friend, i think that her kids makes her happy and maybe thats the main reason why she doesnt need anybody anymore..

Do you really believe that someday when her children grow, she can still fill-in those responsibilities? There are some instances that a child will still ask about their father and a moment that only father can do it for her children.

i think that if a person loves what they're doing, they wont get tired of it.. if taking care of her kids is what makes her happy, then i know she can.. about the kids asking about their dad.. its always good to be honest to kids..that way, they wont have questions when they grow up.. i think that kids nowadays are understanding just as long as its the truth that we're telling them.. its normal to be curious about things you dont have or things you're missing out on, but i guess there will always be right answers for each one.. :)

If we're just talking about parental roles, no I don't think a woman can be a father. But, I don't think she needs to be. She just needs to be a parent. I'm not saying men aren't needed, just that children can grow up well adjusted in single parent households (and I'd wager some of those households, the single parent is a father, rather than a mother). Just from my own experience, I would say being with someone just for the sake of the children is a bad idea and worst than raising them on your own as people have been doing for centuries. My parents staying together and having no affection for each other for years didn't benefit me one bit. I'm not saying a two parent household is unnecessary or outdated. I'm saying it's not the one right type or the only way to have a good family, and trying to manufacture it out of something that isn't there won't do anyone any good.

Well, if there are couples stay together for the sake of their children it will not work because children will still be affected. Children can't get enough to that kind of situation. In that case, much better that women alone will going to nurture her children A couple together needs compassion and affection.

Yeh they are so smart and full of strategies. Like in the game of chess. In reality TV they are doing great as the men does. I saw a woman can play basketball like man do. Women are powerful, too. I like them! They are inspiring!

Althouth nowadays most of the women have the same oppotunity to have education as men do, i think women and men are still different in job taking. For example, to be a constructor of a bridge or road, you have to expose to the heated sun or cold wind to do your job. Very few women can bear it but men can. I mean, men and women are physifically different, they are good at different things and share different way of thinking. Maybe a mom could take the responsibities to be both a Mom and a Dad, but only the responsibities, I think. The children will never really feel like they really are taken care of by their Dad.

I believe this is possible with woman working at very good places and earnings much more than a man I think woman are strong enough to be a single parent for her children, however I read in a book where it states that a child needs both mother and father to live a healthy life and a normal one. But the normal life was already formed so they have the model of a mother, a father and a child to be a healthy family. I am confident that a woman alone can moult the future of the children too.

Maybe.A woman nowadays can totally mold all by herself her children but didn't you find it more difficult? You work for your children and serve them as you can so that you can do the responsibilities of a father to them.
