do kids and babys need there mom more than there dad
MOST HELPFUL POSTS
My mom once told me Moms are great for babies/kids & Dads are great for teens. I think, depending on, yes, how good a mother they are moms are seemingly more attentive and caring for babes & children. There are some women that shouldn't have kids...I've met a few! Totally back you in that Sharon!!! I think for some men they don't have the patience for a baby... but would likely do better once they start walking, playing & talking...

I think babies need their mothers more than their fathers, IF she is a ood mother. However, as children grow, they tend to start forming a better attachment with their fathers, and a father's role in their life becomes just as important.
Promiscuity in young girls is linked to a poor relationship with her father, poor treatment of women by boys can be linked to poor role models, or no positive male role model at all. As long as both parents are positive male role models, they are equally important to a child. If one parent is a negative role model, then obviously babies and kids need the other parent more (whether mum or dad).

The question is 'do kids and baby's need 'their' mom more than 'their' dad'.
Reread the question. Children need both parents. PERIOD. I am not wasting my time debating with you Sharon.
Its an EITHER / OR question.
It is utterly debatable and I'm willing to bet some single parents would be disgusted with your answer.
So your idea is that all children of single parents are screwed?
I read the question. YOU didn't. Mom OR Dad - is the question. IT DEPENDS.

I really believe kids and babies need both parents just the same. I think that what one parent lacks the other picks up. Just like a team. You will both makes mistakes but as long as you are there for each other and your kids/babies you will do just fine. And let God do the rest.

I think they need both equally. The mother has a certain female influence, like teaching their daughters what it means to be a young lady and they need dads to show them how a woman is supposed to be treated. Hopefully both are good influences.
