The prevalence of single mothers as primary caregiver is a part of traditional parenting trends between mothers and fathers. Data supports these claims, showing that in comparison to men, women are doing more than two-thirds of all child caring and in some cases one hundred percent.  Of approximately 12 million single-parent homes in 2015, more than 80 percent were headed by single mothers.  This disproportionate statistic has been well- documented in multiple country contexts all around the world.  The United States Census Bureau found that today, one in four children under the age of 18, a total of million are being raised without a father at all.  Women all around the world have been perpetually socialized to adhere to traditional gender roles that place the majority of responsibility for childcare upon them.
