      * Yes it is a broad statement, but true. Single fathers generally raise better adjusted kids than single mothers.
      I started to disagree with this because I was definitely raised more by my mom than my awesome stepdad (not because dad was a dick; he was deployed overseas a lot), then I realized you are talking about men, and...hmmmmmmm.

      My brother is a great guy, but had a habit in his 20s and 30s of moving back home with mom. Where I moved out when I was 17, he kept coming back home. I think he always treated his girlfriends well, and I know he's treating his wife well. But, well, he had three sisters.

      I don't know if it was the lack of a strong male role model or not, though, that made him so...passive. Our bio-dad is a good man, but he can be a bit hard to "get", and my brother's formative years were spent with him. Having a father who isn't easily pleased can be just as bad as one that doesn't exist. At some point, I think my brother just stopped trying, and it took him years to dig out of that.

      He did, though....his wife gave birth to their first, and was diagnosed shortly after with ALS. It's heart-wrenching. Her time is very limited. He's completely devoted to her and his daughter, though. I think some of that comes from the parents he had (and very specifically my mom), and the values they instilled in him.

      • Onalark........ I am so sorry to hear about the babies diagnosis. That is aweful. What a cruel way to come into this world, and to be taken out of it so quickly. I hope the people caring for her medical needs can keep her painfree. I don't understand why babies have to suffer - it just isn't right.

            It's reversed, Tomi. The mom was diagnosed. The baby is fine.

            (Thank you for your concern. It's been on my mind a lot lately. This is a case where "have they tried paleo?" fixes nothing. Nothing.)

            • Oh, gods. This is just one of those deeply unfair, sad things. So sorry about this tragedy Onalark.

                • It's all right. Well, no...it's not all right, but your mix-up is all right. First world written word issues. I knew when I wrote the sentence that I needed to be careful about phrasing, but the cat distracted me. The cat is good about that.

                  This is the second mom I have known who won't live to see her child grow up. I think that's what's eating at me. My friend Nora was a beautiful woman, and her son is turning into a handsome young man, but I just so wish she could be there to see it. And I wish the same for my sister-in-law. And I know she'll hold on as long as she can, but it's never long enough.

                  • I just wanted to let my fellow She-Groks know that I finally got around to writing up my Primal success story for Mark's friday post. I I was waiting until I got the five years post breast cancer all clear before I declared anything a success. Not really superstitious about "jinxing" anything, just didn't want to get ahead of myself.

                    Got a letter back from him last night saying he is going to publish it. I'm not sure which Friday it will be but keep an eye out for it.
