It depends on the one parent and what kind of a person they are.

The answer can only be it depends: on the emotional stability of each parent, on their relationships with the child or children, on their supportiveness of each other as parents, on the amount of quality time they each spend with their child or children, etc., etc., etc. These are the same factors that determine whether they are healthy married parents a well! A good parent can only do their best, but children aren't raised in a vacuum. There are internal factors and forces outside the family that will influence their outcome as well.
