In a piece on YourBlackBloggers.net, Nomalanga Mhauli-Moses says that the recent drama between NBA star Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife remind us that there are too many single parent homes in the black community. She says that typically, people have one excuse or another for why the child is being raised by one parent and often forget that having just one parent is harmful to the child.
Mhauli-Moses says that the black community should simply “swallow the pill of truth” and stop making excuses. She says that good family planning and productive choices are the keys to building strong families and relationships. Says Nomalanga:
One does not have to do much searching to find piles and piles of data, research and studies that all conclude that the best environment for a child to be raised is in a functional two parent home. The reason why I say that a father’s right to see his children is a secondary issue is because I believe that the primary issue that needs to be addressed is that of children being in single parent homes to begin with.
