    It's the mother, the woman, with all the crtitism and expectations. Never the man or the father, where is he in all of it?
    I'd like to see someone suggest instead of cutting single mothers pensions they tax the single father a higher rate to make up some of those costs single mothers face and to pay for the benefits, since it's such a financial problem for the government to support mothers and children
    And please don't tell me they pay child support, it's an experiment to see how the men would react.

    Was thinking the exact same thing! 😳

    I am pretty sure that all the crimes listed against single parent households in this article also occur in those with both parents....and in households across the whole spectrum of incomes.....

    Sounds like a pretty lame attempt to justify a budget cut to me...

    I am genuinely perplexed by why you seem to be suggesting here that not seeking child support is a good thing, and even more that fathers should be 'allowed' to be 'visited'. Was he in prison? Children are the legal and financial responsibility of two adults. It's a terrible shame your father did not provide you with the resources or role model you needed.
