Father-less-ness and brain development

As marriage and the traditional family have eroded in Western Culture under the weight of a general acceptance of sexual promiscuity and non-traditional lifestyles, the Church has taken up the call for renewed commitment to traditional families. Research has again and again reinforced (from a scientific angle) what the Church has proclaimed from the Bible: that a life-long marriage between one man and one woman as the natural arena for raising children is, on the whole, the healthiest possible model, both for individuals (including children) and for the society in general in many respects.

Here is a fascinating post looking at research on how brain development actually differs based upon the presence (or absence) of a father.
