I personally feel that the level of baby-mama/daddy-ism is in the African American community is truly a tragedy. I completely agree that there are many different reasons why these situations occur, such as many socioeconomic factors, but I believe it is far beyond the time that we start putting more weight on personal responsibility from these parents. Too many un-wed, un-educated, un-prepared, young Black people are bringing children into this world and the children always end up paying the price. They are growing up in an environment that has not taught them what a proper, functional, family make-up looks like and as they go further in life, they emulate the same patterns that were prevalent in their own lives.
Every man/woman that you meet or even date, of course isn’t going to turn out to be the person that you marry. That is inevitable. People fall out of love…sometimes people realize that they were never in love to begin with…but the most important thing is, after you take it a step further and you bring children into the equation, you need to suck it up, put your personal desires aside and do what is best for these Black children…all children.
This doesn’t necessarily mean staying in a marriage that doesn’t work anymore, because in many cases that can be more detrimental. What it means it to maintain a civil parent relationship. Both parents need to still remain actively involved in their children’s lives. The extra time that you may need to spend in the presence of this ex- may be difficult, but it is no doubt worth it to the healthy development of our youth.
