20 Men Honestly Showed Us What It’s Like to Be a Single Father

In many societies, people still believe that mothers care more about their children and fathers only help in their free time and don’t have that big of a responsibility. But it’s not always true, and these single fathers bust that myth.

We at Bright Side even teared up while attempting to choose the photos for this article and reading stories of their authors. At the end of the article, there’s a bonus for you: a child’s opinion about living with a single father.
