So true!  Cautionary tale to single moms.  I am always telling my son, things that will make him a great husband like taking out the trash, cleaning up the dishes, holding the door open, and praying before dinner.  I have not spent as much effort teaching my daughters about being a good wife and respecting a man ....  

 

So often we worry about boys of single moms....  Women teach them how to be great men.  

 

But, how does a woman that's not a wife, teach her daughter how to be one?
