So a two parent household is better than a two parent household with a grandparent or two? If a two parent household is so good, wouldn't a three or four guardian household even be better.

Also does this “2-parent” household have to be the biological mother and father?

I am under the opinion that it is more important as to who the parent/parents are and how the care for the child and less to do with the number of parents.

I disagree. I believe the extended family model is superior. Then again, it is my belief that it is the parent/parents that can make any model superior. Just having and staying married to a woman would not make me a good parent. It is the effort the parent puts in to his/her children that makes for a superior family, not the numbers.
