  • This myth believes children raised in single-parent homes have deficits that will be erased if they are instead raised in a two-parent stepfamily home. Well, actually the research is clear: Children raised in single-parent homes do just as well as kids raised in stepfamily homes. So, when it comes to the well-being of your children, it's okay to stay single. If you meet someone who is a good fit for you and your kids, great. If you don't, great. Either way God will provide.

Ron: If you’re a single parent or dating one, here’s a dating myth to avoid.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: This myth believes that children raised in single-parent homes have deficits that will be erased if they are instead raised in a two-parent stepfamily home. You know, “Your kids can’t be okay unless you get married.” Well, actually the research is clear: Children raised in single-parent homes do just as well—emotionally, spiritually, and developmentally—as kids raised in stepfamily homes.

So, when it comes to the well-being of your children, it’s okay to stay single. If you meet someone who is a good fit for you and your kids, great. If you don’t, great. Either way God will provide. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
