Children Without A Father

Happy Father’s Day to all fathers!
I especially would like to say “Happy Father’s Day” to those stay-at-home dads!

 
They are very few in numbers but usually we don’t acknowledge them. I want to acknowledge them today in saying, Special Happy Father’s Day to them!
 
Are fathers important to their children?
 
🤔
 
You be the judge after reading the following:
 
Statistics on Fatherless children in America:
• Behavioral Disorders: 85 percent of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders
• High School Dropouts: 71 percent of all high school dropouts
• Juvenile Detention Rates: 70 percent of juveniles in state-operated institutions
• Substance Abuse: 75 percent of adolescent patients in substance abuse centers
• Aggression: 75 percent of rapists motivated by displaced anger
 
More on this from:- Harper C, McLanahan SS. Cited in Father Absence and Youth Incarceration. Journal of Research on Adolescence. 2004:
 
 fatherless children are at a dramatically greater risk of drug and alcohol abuse.
 Young men who grow up in homes without fathers are twice as likely to end up in jail
 those boys whose fathers were absent from the household had double the odds of being incarcerated.
 
In a report by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, these benefits are outlined in great detail.
 
 For instance, young boys who have a father figure are less likely to act out and young girls are often more confident.
 A father can also help establish a sense of security and guide children to make wiser decisions. . .
 
What am I trying to say?
 
Fathers, please, your children need you.
 
Not only your children, guess what?
 
The whole society needs you, we all need you to be a father to your children. ///
