The poster is the only person who can clarify what he meant. My position is
that children needs lots of different people in their lives. Unfortunately,
the nuclear family (a mother and a father) limits the adult nurturing and
approval children desperately need. It's bad enough that adults are dealing
with the day-to-day stressors of capitalism with all its cruelty, but what
makes it so much more tragic is that many of these little defenseless ones

And children need different kinds of people in their lives. If one or two

these children can grow into individual, productive, creative, loving human
