Is it bad for boys to be raised without a father figure?
My oldest son's father is not around. I never thought about what it might do to him or feel like growing up without a father figure in his life. Everyday after school he goes outside and throws a football around by himself and again I never thought anything of it. Yesterday he had a friend over. When the kids dad got here he got out of the car with his son and he (the father) stayed for awhile and tossed the football around with my son. At that moment while watching that dad and my son throw a football around, it really made me sad for my son. It hit me that he doesn't have this in his life. My son was so happy that he actually had another person (a dad to make it better) out there throwing the ball around with him.
Do you think boys are okay without a father figure in their lives? Do you think he is craving a father figure in his life?
