Disposable Dads?

Disposable Dads?

If you're a regular reader of the Daily Mail, you will have read yesterday that more boys aged 15 have a smartphone than live with their father.

This is the latest report from the Centre for Social Justice, an independent think tank set up in 2004 by Iain Duncan Smith and Tim Montgomerie. It's safe to say they're right-leaning. 

Yesterday's report bemoaned a "growing culture of disposable dads" To me, this suggests a certain amount of prejudice, suggesting that women have gone out, found a man and got pregnant, and then disposed of the father. This bothers me for oh, so many reasons.

The report predicts that by 2015, there will be two million single parent families. Gingerbread quote that already one in four families is headed by a single parent - and that this figure has remained constant since the mid-1990s.
