I think it would be much better to be raised by one good happy parent then two uncaring parents or in a home where fighting and violence is.

It depends on the parent. I had both of my parents.

I think its better for a child to be raised by two parents in a stable relationship so the child can develop good ideas on relationships for later on in life. However, there are a lot of broken homes these days so that's not always possible.

I think being raised by a mother & a dad are better, but not always possible these days.
