Do Morons Make Good Fathers?

Some might argue that how Morons treat their spouses, is not equivocal to how they treat their children.  I for one will disagree.

Some might say that just because they do not treat their spouses with respect, and abuse them - doesn't mean they are bad parents.

I guess it depends on your definition of a good parent. I personally believe that parents owe their children the best possible upbringing.  One that provides them with both emotional and financial security.  Now, I am not talking about providing your children with ipods and tv's and everything money can buy.  What I am saying is that providing them with shelter, good food, clean clothes and good work ethic are important.  Whether you do so with a 6 figure income, or a minimum wage job, is irrelevant.  Paired with the emotional security to provide them with a safe place they can call home.  Safe for them to be themselves, free from physical and emotional harm.

If you don't believe that the effect of spousal abuse has an impact on your children, then maybe you should ask yourself how children learn, and where they gather their information to which they will model themselves after.

Actions truly do speak louder than words.  Children learn from both - but they are little sponges and absorb everything - good and bad.

Morons may want to be good parents, but wanting and doing are often two different things.  Is there a point where you simply lose parental rights?  What if we were talking about criminals, murderers?

I have read some pretty horrible custody trials, and personally have disagreed with many judicial decisions that have been made over the years.

Its a tough call. What are your thoughts on the issue?  Join the debate...

Morons lack maturity, morons do not have an open mind, morons do not grasp the concept of empathy or true love except self-serving love, and they are generous on condition only. There's nothing unconditional in their giving.

No they do not make good fathers.

I have heard those words "conditional love" describing so many Morons. Very sad that they truly do not know the true meaning of love.

I know this is an old post, but I am a visitor and have been reading back through your archives. What a wonderful voice you have. One thought on this matter I heard from a leader in my church.

“The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother”

David O. McKay

I've never seen or heard of an abusive husband that was a great father. Even if he were capable of loving the children his example undermines everything he does or says.

What a great quote, thanks for sharing.  I guess I just still believe, and hope that one say he will realize what an amazing little girl is right there before his eyes.... In the meantime all i can do is be the best mother I can be, and protect her to the best of my abilities - and sometimes the law stands in teh way of that....
