Damn near impossible, only men can raise men
A common belief when it comes to boys raised without fathers or father figures is that their mother won’t be strong enough to raise them herself.
This is not really true, but the fact is the intricacies of what it is to be a virtuous man can only be truly imparted by a father figure, not even orally but by demonstration. Because boys don’t see their mothers exhibit model masculine traits, even where they might exhibit model feminine traits, they have nothing to model themselves on, and therefore are more prone to give themselves to their basest and most destructive tendencies.
