Have you ever felt defeated, lonely, inferior, worthless, or scared?
It’s not your fault that you are fatherless.
The statistics & studies say that BECAUSE we are fatherless we might fail in life.
Some of the Reasons why we should talk about Fatherlessness:
“85% of youths in prisons grew up in a fatherless home.” – U. S. D.H.H.S. Bureau of the Census
“80% of rapists motivated with displaced anger come from fatherless homes.” – Criminal Justice & Behavior, Vol. 14
“In studies involving over 25,000 children using nationally representative data sets, children who lived with only one parent had lower grade point averages, lower college aspirations, poor attendance records, and higher dropout rates than students who lived with both parents.” – Sara McLanahan, Gary Sandefur, Growing Up With a Single Parent: What Hurts, What Helps.
“Three out of four teenage suicides occur in households where a parent has been absent.” – Jean Bethke Elshtain, Family Matters: The Plight of America’s Children. The Christian Century (July 1993)
“Adolescent females between the ages of 15 and 19 years reared in homes without fathers are significantly more likely to engage in premarital sex than adolescent females reared in homes with both a mother and a father.” – Contextual Effects on the Sexual Behavior of Adolescent Women, Journal of Marriage and Family 56 (1994)
“A white teenage girl from an advantaged background is five times more likely to become a teen mother if she grows up in a single-mother household than if she grows up in a household with both biological parents.” – Facing the Challenges of Fragmented Families, The Philanthropy Roundtable.
“I have worked with thousands of homosexuals. I have never seen a homosexual who had a loving respectful relationship with his father.” – Dr. Joseph Nicolosi
“Boys who grow up in father absent homes are more likely than those in father present homes to have trouble establishing appropriate sex roles and gender identity.” – P.L. Adams, J.R. Milner, Fatherless Children
