Beyond Marriage — The Need for Responsible Parenthood.

Mother and Chikd
     The author concludes that “We also need a new ethic of responsible parenthood.” Meaning you don’t have kids until you have a stable relationship, presumably one involving marriage. The decline of marriage and the growth of having children outside of marriage is a result of many factors. I agree.  This is a complex situation but individual responsibility is of paramount concern. It needs to be reinforced for everyone’s concern.
