The Problem is Post-Modern Broken Family Model

sos_phoneIt isn’t ok, good, or beneficial to raise children as a single parent.  Each parent isn’t assumed to be poor or inadequate rather the lack of TWO parents is harmful to kids by its very nature.

Children from fatherless homes are:

  • Seven times more likely to live in poverty;
  • Six times more likely to commit suicide;
  • More than twice as likely to commit crime;
  • More than twice as likely to become pregnant out of wedlock;
  • Worse off academically and socially;
  • Worse off physically and emotionally when they reach adulthood.

Children from fatherless homes account for:

  • 60 percent of America’s rapists;
  • 63 percent of America’s youth suicides;
  • 70 percent of America’s long-term prison inmates;
  • 70 percent of America’s reform school attendees;
  • 71 percent of America’s teenage pregnancies;
  • 71 percent of America’s high school dropouts;
  • 72 percent of America’s adolescent murderers;
  • 85 percent of America’s youth prisoners;
  • 85 percent of America’s youth with behavioral disorders;
  • 90 percent of America’s runaways.
