The Best Family Structure for Kids (August 15, 2012)


Which family structure is really best for children?

Professor Mark Regnerus of the University of Texas is under fire for a study that attempted to determine the effect of same-sex parenting on children.

Some claim that his New Family Structures Study shows that gay parenting is bad for children, while gay activists are enraged, saying that Professor Regnerus should be fired and that the study should never have been published at all.

But rising above the all the controversy, is one undeniable finding: Children raised in a stable family with a mom-and-dad  fare better than those in any of the so-called “new” family structures.

The good old “mom and pop” family structure is not new, but it is the best family structure for kids, after all.
