Great psychological harm accrues to a child, male or female, growing up in a one child home when the other parent is still living. In times of solitude, birthdays, holidays, that child will inevitably brood over and lament the absence of the missing parent. Recognizing that there are many successful one-parent homes, never-the-less, those homes that are not successful produce a child, or children, who will, in many ways, have social and professional problems for a lifetime. If nothing else, a profound sadness and lack of trust will exist, which many will be unable to overcome.
