I asked a question a few days ago... Do men love their children as much as women do? The answer was overwhelmingly yes. A lot of very good points were made, and it was clear that the vast majority of women who were answering had SOs who were great dads (which makes me super happy!)
But I wonder. If in general men love their children just as much as women do, then howcome when a couple splits, so often the dad sees their kids way less than they should, and express little to no interest in them? You almost never see women abandoning their children like that, but you see it happen with men all the time.
Why is that?

There are plenty of terrible moms out there, single dads who are raising their kids and kids who are in the system because of the horrible moms they have. The problem is that we, as a society, make a huge deal of dead beat dad but not about the terrible moms. And, of course, you do have the moms who would rather have an abortion than to step it up and be a parent or even give the child a chance at life with adoptive parents. There are awesome dads the same as there are awesome moms, but we hear more about the bad dads more than the good ones.
