  • Because single moms are playing the role of both parents. Both mother AND father.

  • I don't see anything wrong with it. SIngle moms do have to play the role of mom and dad. Just like single dads have to play both roles. Single parents have a very hard job. I think they deserve two days of recognition!

  • I don't get it either. Single moms are mothers, they cannot be fathers or male. Fathers cannot be mothers or female. No one should get two days. A mother cannot be a father.

  • Because the stuff for dad gifts is so much better than the crap people expect to get by with pawning off on their mothers. Give me power tools any day.

    Honestly, why does it matter? If a kid wants to acknowledge mom on Father's Day (or dad on Mother's Day) it's a nice gesture. If some single parents who pull the full load day in and day out think it would be nice to BE acknowledged on both, ya can't really blame them a bit. If it pisses you off to the point you have to post a question about it, simply acknowledge only the "appropriate" parent on the day in question, and don't worry about what other people do. Easy enough.
