Survey Shows Society Still Believes in the Nuclear Family

According to a recent report by the Pew Research Center, many respondents indicated that most people agree that kids are better off when being raised by both parents. The survey indicated that 7 out of 10 respondents said that single women raising a child without the benefit of a male partner was a problem because they were concerned that working women abandoned by their husbands cannot devote as much time to the children as the children need.

Of the people who participated in the survey, 74 percent of men say that kids are better off when both parents are involved, compared to 63 percent of women. 70 percent of whites, 74 percent of blacks, and 58 percent of Hispanics also agreed that a two parent family is best for children.

The report does not condemn mothers who are single, but simply shows that a vast segment of our society believes that children are better off being raised by a mother and a father.

When determining parenting time in the State of Colorado,  the courts seek to have both parents involved in the life of child.
