"Fathers" presence in a childs life?

What about those "dads" who chose not to be around from day one?
Or the "dads" who continue a constant battle of abuse towards the childs mother just out of pure satisfaction for the entertainment of it all?


Do they derserve a second chance?

Its important for a child to have a mother and a father.  I don't think the father has to be bio but it is important to have someone in that roll IMO.

I think they deserve a second chance at being a father. I think it's hugely important for children to know BOTH their parents.

Sometimes people need a little time to grow up and realize what's important. It's not right for a man or woman to act like that but hey, sometimes it just takes some time. You never know they may turn into a great parent.

Eh, my dad left when mom was pregnant. Sd was in and out of prison

I'm fine, I didn't need a father and I don't have the "daddy complex"

No dad is better than a shitty dad. 

And a 'half way ok' dad is better than no dad. 

It ALWAYS depends on the circumstances.

My dad left when i was a baby. My mom did a great job on her own. She had his address and said she would let me see him if i wanted. I figured he never wanted me, why should i contact him?
However i think everyone is different. Some people can get majorly screwed up by no dad. Wondering why there dad didnt want them. Same with adopted kids. Some want to
find there birth parents, some don't.

If a mother can take on both roles, then a male figure isnt necessary. It just depends on if the mom can handle it.

Sometimes no matter how good mom does, kids still have abandonment issues.
