Y not??? That's not even a question cos that would make single parents trying rily hard to make a success outta their child feel they aren't doing enough! Not all married couples raise successful children!

Unknown said...

Yes,why not if not.

Alloy Chikezie said...

Yes! Yes! Yes! 100% Yes!
There are a thousand and one example, some lost one parent due to divorce or even death Although raising a child within the circles of love of both parent is the best, but circumstances sometimes makes it inevitable to raise a child by a single parent.

Even God makes something out of nothing. The rejected stone, becomes the corner stone. Nothing is impossible.
So Yes a single parent can raise a successful child.

If she is rich nd has people handling her business but if she does a 6-10 job as applicable in lagos and many other states,I doubt it.raising a successful child requires time,patience,paying a lot of attention and more time.if she's saddled with the responsibility of making money and raising the child at the same time,im sure we all know who shel pay more attention to.

Its difficult, the child might or will have issues in understanding certain things later on in life about relationship and family unity. I will take myself has an example. My parent where married for over 30 yrs before their died and so we have always leave in the unity among my brothers/ sisters but i am married now for 12 yrs and my wife is having issues or difficulties understanding family unity. she was raise by a single mum and her own case is even complicated because she does have 3 other brothers and sisters from all different dads which is also another issues in it self. she grow up not trusting people and stuff like that. so Linda its hard i have to deal with character which i consider to be unstable in a normal family setting but fine with her from a single home. which is strange. .....

Unknown said...

yes,is possible i was raise up by a single mother and and am successful.....THANK GOD AM HERE TODAY.......A MANAGER IN A COMPANY

It depends on the child to choose the right paths for him or her self. It also depends on the character of such a parent. Sometimes, two good heads are better than one. Sometimes, it is rather good to do it alone than have a bad influence as a companion. Sometimes, "Nikita nwanyi zuru na-ata akwa". That is, a dog raised by a woman eats eggs. I and my siblings were raised by our mum. Those that are doing well are those who decide to do well. Others are something else. She sees everything bad in the ones that chose not to follow her bad ways and are doing well. Those that plan evil with her and execute the evils are her friends. It all depends on what a child decides for him or her self.

Why not?A lot of children are being raised singularly by their married but single mothers or fathers.

Some women don't do anything else except bring the baby into the world,some fathers have been known to be more present than the mother.

Same applies for A LOT of married women.The man does nothing except provide his sperm.Hes hardly home,doesn't know squat about school or its fees,feeding,hospital bills,vacations,clothes,homework.He exists in the house for the sake of saying he's a father.This group of men are quite plenty and they are around you and I.The culture that continues to shame women further pushes them to lie that the husband is picking the bills and how he's a fabulous father!
YIMU !!!!

So Linda,plenty single people can raise a child successfully l.Raising the child has nothing to do with your marital status.A child that grows up in the environments described above will only grow up damaged.

While a single and loving parent can make up for two crazy parents

ADA NDUKA-OSONKIE said...

A single woman can raise more than one successful child. My mum raised four successful children alone because my dad died when we were 6yrs,4yrs,2yrs and 5months old respectively. And she did it alone without any help from her family or my dad's family. We are all graduates and working except for the last child who is in 300level in the university.

YES!! A single parent can raise a successful child!

My uncle had issues with his first wife (who is late now), the couple had issues after the birth of their fist son (only child from the woman). Intervention from Family and friends couldn't help repair the rift, my uncle married another woman after he came back from US and had other children who are grown ups now.

The woman raised her only Son alone, from childhood to where he is today. The man is an Engineer, holds a doctorate degree, and is currently based in the UK with his wife and 3 kids, he works and Lectures in one of the top Universities in the UK.

So who said a single/divorcée parent can't raise a succesful child!

Mama Moyosore said...

Yes, i can and i will. So far the Single parent is not lazy and has a relationship with God. I see Success written all over the kid.

80% of these people are not role models morally.

Anonymous said...

More than 60% of Nigerian children were raised by a single parent. Usually the father was just there as husband but did not participate and in some cases he did not contribute financially. This is why mothers are revered so much in our country, they sacrificed their lives for most. So yes!
