In recent years, single parenting has become more mainstream, especially as a result of the decisions by courts and adoption agencies. Some people oppose singles adopting children, citing that single men and women do not make good parents. A good parent is one who loves unconditionally; is comforting; is patient; sets and enforces limits; listens and understands; and sets examples among other things. A single person can embody all of these qualities and, therefore, makes a good parent.
