Single dads deserving of respect

Single parents deserve a lot of respect.  Single fathers deserve special commendation as they take on a counter-cultural role and deliver on their responsibilities to their children in the face of prejudice and discrimination.

I hope that single dads everywhere might take inspiration from other single dads who are such heroes for stepping into their parental role - even in the face of adversity.

Here's one particularly inspirational single dad : Atticus Finch of the novel To Kill a Mockingbird.  His adversaries were not sexists but bigots and small-minded town-folk.

We all face challenges.  A single father has the potential to earn much respect in the face of adversity he faces.  Read more about why Atticus Finch is deserving of respect here.


  1. Married… divorced… separated… never together… Once you’re a father, you're always a father. There is no you in the formula of life anymore. There is always at least one other person standing beside you in that equation. Always. Own that. And never leave that behind.

    Proud to be a Single Dad

  2. It is sad that culture still locks both men and women into limiting roles of parenthood. Single dads and moms who aim to grow their children up right do an excellent job.

  3. Times are changing. More people are recognizing how much they contribute to their families and society as single fathers.
