I am a 27-year-old single mother of 2 young sons ages 2 and 1. My sons have no relationship with they're father because he is in and out of prison and when he's not incarcerated, he spends no time with them. They really dont know him.
My 2-year-old acts out in very bad ways at times by yelling, screaming, and throwing things. He's a very sweet and smart child, but his temper is out of this world! Some people tell me he acts this way because there is no father or father-figure around him. Is that true? And I am also at a lost because I feel like I will not know in the future how to raise 2 young Black males by myself. Some people tell me a man has to raise a man, but I see women everyday that has raised they're son(s) by themselves and they turned out to be very successful men. So is it mandatory that my sons need a father-figure in they're lives?
