In Support of Two-Parent Households
What's the main reason a kid should have two parents?
So when the Cub Scouts have an overnight adventure on a submarine, the parent who has heart palpitations just thinking about being on a submarine, berthed the entire time or not, and who knows she would just, one, be shouting at random times throughout the ordeal "Remember the Kursk!"; and, two, be volunteering to do the entire night watch rather than have to feign sleep in a room full of grubby Cub Scouts who don't realize WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE, can send the other parent to make their Youngest over-the-moon ecstatic.
Other than that? I don't see any reason for demanding a two-parent household.
