Mark McDonald is a psychiatrist in Los Angeles.
He previously chatted to me about masculinity. This time, he chatted to me about why the traditional family matters.
In our conversation, Mark touches on
- a mother and a father being critical;
- gay and single parents;
- children versus video games, drugs, and gangs;
- women failing at being both career-and-family driven; and
- prioritising family over income.
Traditional families are the rule
As he points out, there are exceptions, but it’s important to remember that exceptions are not the rule.
Whether we like it or not, the traditional family matters.
