A 43-year-old single father recently asked the AITA community on Reddit for moral judgment.
of post The father, who garnered 15.7k upvotes and 3.7k comments, explained that he usually picks up his 8-year-old daughter Lisa after school clubs, but one day he had to stay up late at work. I did.
“I tried my best to stop negotiating, but my manager told me to complete the mission by that night, so I did,” the father explained.
The only way to collect Lisa was to ask his teenage son.
One father wonders if he was wrong to interrupt his teenage son’s date to pick up his sister after being stuck late for work.

Moreover, according to recent information Reports from LendingTree, there are over 1.5 million single fathers in the United States. This number is not trivial. This equates to over 1.5 million single fathers.
As you might imagine, single-mother families are much more numerous, accounting for over 6.3 million or 19.1% of single-parent families.
According to the same report, the average income for single-parent households is $67,405, one-third less than the average income for all families where a parent raises a child ($101,536). Still, it is well above the average single-mother household income ($40,500).
But, as more and more research reveals, children are better off being raised by single parents than living with married parents who have a lot of conflict. , it is also important to note that children raised by divorced parents may have better outcomes than those raised by remarried parents.
