Are you

Are you saying two parents are better than one?

Today’s families are diverse and services and workplaces need to reflect their needs. Single parents need support, particularly where biological fathers are not involved - which is the case in about five per cent of families in Scotland. But biological dads are only one kind of father, and we know that children benefit from a more inclusive definition of the other “father-figures” who may have a positive nurturing influence in their lives: uncles, gay dads, godfathers, adoptive dads, grandads, stepdads, male mentors or teachers and many others.
