The Two-Parent Privilege

Although it may be surprising to some, having two parents in the home provides the greatest economic privilege kids can have. Thus, the decline in marriage has had disastrous cultural implications. In this episode, Sean and Scott discuss the recent book The Two Parent Privilege by Melissa Kearney. They discuss Kearney's 10-year study which shows the host of benefits that are passed on to children who grow up with two parents. While her argument is not biblically-based, it lines up with Scriptural values of the family.
