Contradiction: An Essay
Anyone who keeps an eye peeled for the newspapers or who listens to the TV, will be only too aware of the stigma and myths attached to single parenthood.
What is sometimes worrying is how many people buy into these myths without considering whether they are true or not and the effect this might have on the parents concerned. Worse still, do we ever spare a thought for the children who are growing up in these families who just might be old enough to understand the implications of what is being said?
One Parent Families Scotland was delighted and honoured to receive a written essay from the son of a single parent. This was submitted as part of his higher exam for which he received an ‘A’.
Congratulations Kieran! We found the piece both moving and very telling and we wanted to share this with you.
