On this episode of the ::ANSWERS:: show, join us as we look to find ::ANSWERS:: to the question of whether single motherhood is over celebrated. We will discuss why some single mothers wear their single motherhood as a badge of honor.
We will also discuss comments made by New York Times columnist David Brooks who has a problem with single mothers blaming them for their own poverty. He goes on to say...
"There is a very strong correlation between single motherhood and low social mobility. There is a very strong correlation between high school dropout rates and low mobility. There is a strong correlation between the fraying of social fabric and low economic mobility. There is a strong correlation between de-industrialization and low social mobility. It is also true that many men, especially young men, are engaging in behaviors that damage their long-term earning prospects; much more than comparable women.
Low income is the outcome of these interrelated problems, but it is not the problem. To say it is the problem is to confuse cause and effect. To say it is the problem is to give yourself a pass from exploring the complex and morally fraught social and cultural roots of the problem. It is to give yourself permission to ignore the parts that are uncomfortable to talk about but that are really the inescapable core of the thing."
