Though the results of some studies show that children who grow up with only one parent are more likely to be poorer and have less opportunities, there are a number of examples that prove this theory wrong.
There are a number of well-known people who have grown up in single parent households and a desire to succeed and achieve in the face of adversity and whilst growing up surrounded by difficulties can often be given as a reason for this. One of the most well-known and notable examples of this is current US President Barack Obama, who was brought up solely by his mother after his father left the family shortly after his birth. The fact that there was a lack of a father figure in Obama’s life seems to have had no impact on his professional life having worked his way through the American political system to the highest office in the land.
Former President Bill Clinton was also raised by a lone parent. Raised by his mother Clinton would often spend time with his grandparents who owned a local shop when she was off for long periods at medical school, so there was an element of stability to his home life but there was still the lack of a father figure in his childhood. As well as politics the world of TV and film has its share of those who have been raised by lone parents, Demi Moore, Bill Cosby, Matt Le Blanc and Julia Roberts to name but a few have all reached great heights despite having to often work twice as hard to gain the opportunities as well as the financial backing they needed to achieve their ultimate goal.

Too much attention is given to celebrities, they really are not the roll models you believe them to be. Be your own celebrity. Excel in school or your own favorite interests. Be kind and generous to others with your opinions and thoughts. Really be there for your friends when they need you, trust me, in time you will be your own star. at least half the celebrities of today have grown up in single parent homes.
