EDITOR’S NOTE: In society today there are many single-parent families where the children are well-loved and taken care of. We at BCN certainly recognize this monumental task of having to fulfill both mother and father roles, and having been a single mom myself, I appreciate the difficulty but also the viability. This article is not meant in any way to disqualify single parents, but to underscore God’s perfect plan for raising a child. –Aimee Herd, BCN.

A study published in the Journal of Communication and Religion confirms the benefits of God’s original design for a family: a mother and a father.

According to the Town Hall report, the research showed that boys need the input and nurturing of a mother, and girls, likewise, need that of a father.

The research was done using students from two private “church-related” universities in Southern California, where they were asked to “evaluate their family’s relationship satisfaction, religiosity, and communication behaviors with the opposite-sex parent. Specifically, the study looked at the openness, assurance, dependency, and religiosity between the student and his or her mother or father.”

Some of the findings revealed that “a child’s self-esteem is strongly linked to parental assurance of worth. A vote of confidence from parents is particularly significant to adolescents.”

The practice of “openness” in communication was also found to be important. “When parents and children openly and comfortably share their thoughts and emotions, the transition into healthy adulthood is easier,” says Senior Fellow of Concerned Women for America, Janice Crouse, in her Town Hall report.

Crouse concluded by noting, “While family communication and interaction is critical to high-quality relationships for children and adolescents, this study suggests that the opposite-sex parent is especially important in making children feel validated and encouraged… Daughters with a strong relationship with their father are more self-confident, self-reliant, and are more successful in school and career than those who have distant or absent fathers. Finally, the study validates the old adage, ‘The family that prays together, stays together’—even during those stressful adolescent and teen years.”
