It’s no longer a ‘Leave It to Beaver’ world for American families – but it wasn’t back then, either

It’s less common today for American children to have a family like the ones portrayed on television in the 1950s and ’60s. One of the biggest reasons is a dramatic rise in kids living with a single parent.

In 2014, just 14% of children younger than 18 lived with a stay-at-home mother and a working father who were in their first marriage. This marks a dramatic decline from the height of the postwar baby boom, when these kinds of households were more common.

    I’d bet if you looked at the percentage of libtards by race it would match the dark green column. Progressivism has destroyed this country.

      Roles and priorities and such.

    No it wasn’t a Leave it to Beaver world. But that’s what we were striving for. Instead we got Leave it to Sodom.

    Asian women haven’t been utterly corrupted by feminism yet.

    Actually that scenario in the second paragraph being 14% is surprisingly high to me. Other than my own upbringing I can’t come up with a single person I know, and mines a bit of a cheat as my mom did have a couple part-time jobs over the years as I got older.

    More than half of all children born in the US are to umarried couples. In some communities 80% of all children are reared by single moms.

    All the feminist did was undo the chain from the mother in the Kitchen and attached it to her low paying job while the father was booted out of the family, then the children are raised by Strangers in a day care until being put in the school system as Wards of the State being told what to think and who were the enemies of the State to mock .

    It’s amazing that feminists think it’s okay for a local women to look after 4 children during the day that aren’t hers , but once she related to them and has a husband actually living in the home she become a sell-out to the cause and oppressed.
