It is better for a home not to have the father than not have the mother around. The ideal is to have both. A mother turns a house a to a home. 2 Kings 4:19 Suddenly he cried out, “My head hurts! My head hurts!” His father said to one of the servants, “Carry him home to his mother.”
There is a difference between a mother’s love and a father’s love, they both love the children but differently.
Proverbs 31:21 She has no fear of winter for her household, for everyone has warm clothes.
