We’re told that there are problems with older mothers having kids when there’s not a bloke around. The kids not developing properly.
The rise in older unmarried working mothers has contributed to a slump in children’s social and emotional skills particularly among working class boys, a UCL study suggests.
The researchers found the gap between children with the highest social and emotional skills and those with the lowest had widened over 30 years.
It was particularly acute among boys where the gap had increased by as much as 30 per cent in the past 30 years although the difference between girls had also risen.
What possible solutions are there to this? Despite the joyousness with which much of the left still embraces eugenics we’re not going to tell older single women that they can’t have children. It would also be quite against the tenor of the times to insist that there’s got to be a bloke in those lives.
We also know that social and emotional intelligence is not something caught from the State nor inculcated by state care, whether in “homes” or schools.
That is, there is no solution that we’re going to apply. Well just have to put up with young men having few social skills and being unable to express their emotions. That would be a change, wouldn’t it?
