"The Fathererless Generation"

Successful, healthy societies have always disapproved of single mothers. They're horrors for the children and society. I consider single mothers to be monsters. Fathers who desert their children are monsters, too...but contrary to the myth they are but a very small fraction of the problem. The problem is women who have children out of wedlock and get frivorces and expect to get the kids - which they should not. The children should almost always to the father.

This article is from the site The Fatherless Generation, which is run by Sabrina.


"63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (US Dept. Of Health/Census) – 5 times the average.

"90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes – 32 times the average.

"85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average. (Center for Disease Control)

"80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes –14 times the average. (Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26)

"71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average. (National Principals Association Report)

"Father Factor in Education - Fatherless children are twice as likely to drop out of school.

"Children with Fathers who are involved are 40% less likely to repeat a grade in school.

"Children with Fathers who are involved are 70% less likely to drop out of school.

"Children with Fathers who are involved are more likely to get A’s in school.

"Children with Fathers who are involved are more likely to enjoy school and engage in extracurricular activities.

"75% of all adolescent patients in chemical abuse centers come from fatherless homes – 10 times the average.

"Father Factor in Drug and Alcohol Abuse - Researchers at Columbia University found that children living in two-parent household with a poor relationship with their father are 68% more likely to smoke, drink, or use drugs compared to all teens in two-parent households. Teens in single mother households are at a 30% higher risk than those in two-parent households.

"70% of youths in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average. (U.S. Dept. of Justice, Sept. 1988)

"85% of all youths in prison come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average. (Fulton Co. Georgia, Texas Dept. of Correction)

"Father Factor in Incarceration – Even after controlling for income, youths in father-absent households still had significantly higher odds of incarceration than those in mother-father families. Youths who never had a father in the household experienced the highest odds. A 2002 Department of Justice survey of 7,000 inmates revealed that 39% of jail inmates lived in mother-only households. Approximately forty-six percent of jail inmates in 2002 had a previously incarcerated family member. One-fifth experienced a father in prison or jail.

"Father Factor in Crime - A study of 109 juvenile offenders indicated that family structure significantly predicts delinquency. Adolescents, particularly boys, in single-parent families were at higher risk of status, property and person delinquencies. Moreover, students attending schools with a high proportion of children of single parents are also at risk. A study of 13,986 women in prison showed that more than half grew up without their father. Forty-two percent grew up in a single-mother household and sixteen percent lived with neither parent

"Father Factor in Child Abuse – Compared to living with both parents, living in a single-parent home doubles the risk that a child will suffer physical, emotional, or educational neglect. The overall rate of child abuse and neglect in single-parent households is 27.3 children per 1,000, whereas the rate of overall maltreatment in two-parent households is 15.5 per 1,000.

"Daughters of single parents without a Father involved are 53% more likely to marry as teenagers, 711% more likely to have children as teenagers, 164% more likely to have a pre-marital birth and 92% more likely to get divorced themselves.

"Adolescent girls raised in a 2 parent home with involved Fathers are significantly less likely to be sexually active than girls raised without involved Fathers.

"Census Fatherhood Statistics

"64.3 million: Estimated number of fathers across the nation

"26.5 million: Number of fathers who are part of married-couple families with their own children under the age of 18.

"Among these fathers -

"22 percent are raising three or more of their own children under 18 years old (among married-couple family households only).

"2 percent live in the home of a relative or a non-relative.

"2.5 million: Number of single fathers, up from 400,000 in 1970. Currently, among single parents living with their children, 18 percent are men.

"Among these fathers -

"8 percent are raising three or more of their own children under 18 years old.

"42 percent are divorced, 38 percent have never married, 16 percent are separated and 4 percent are widowed. (The percentages of those divorced and never married are not significantly different from one another.)

"16 percent live in the home of a relative or a non-relative.

"27 percent have an annual family income of $50,000 or more.

"85 percent: Among the 30.2 million fathers living with children younger than 18, the percentage who lived with their biological children only.

"11 percent lived with step-children

"4 percent with adopted children

"1 percent with foster children

"Recent policies encourage the development of programs designed to improve the economic status of low-income nonresident fathers and the financial and emotional support provided to their children. This brief provides ten key lessons from several important early responsible fatherhood initiatives that were developed and implemented during the 1990s and early 2000s. Formal evaluations of these earlier fatherhood efforts have been completed making this an opportune time to step back and assess what has been learned and how to build on the early programs’ successes and challenges.While the following statistics are formidable, the Responsible Fatherhood research literature generally supports the claim that a loving and nurturing father improves outcomes for children, families and communities.

"Children with involved, loving fathers are significantly more likely to do well in school, have healthy self-esteem, exhibit empathy and pro-social behavior, and avoid high-risk behaviors such as drug use, truancy, and criminal activity compared to children who have uninvolved fathers.

"Studies on parent-child relationships and child well-being show that father love is an important factor in predicting the social, emotional, and cognitive development and functioning of children and young adults.

"24 million children (34 percent) live absent their biological father.

"Nearly 20 million children (27 percent) live in single-parent homes.

"43 percent of first marriages dissolve within fifteen years; about 60 percent of divorcing couples have children; and approximately one million children each year experience the divorce of their parents.

"Fathers who live with their children are more likely to have a close, enduring relationship with their children than those who do not.

"Compared to children born within marriage, children born to cohabiting parents are three times as likely to experience father absence, and children born to unmarried, non-cohabiting parents are four times as likely to live in a father-absent home.

"About 40 percent of children in father-absent homes have not seen their father at all during the past year; 26 percent of absent fathers live in a different state than their children; and 50 percent of children living absent their father have never set foot in their father’s home.

"Children who live absent their biological fathers are, on average, at least two to three times more likely to be poor, to use drugs, to experience educational, health, emotional and behavioral problems, to be victims of child abuse, and to engage in criminal behavior than their peers who live with their married, biological (or adoptive) parents.

"From 1995 to 2000, the proportion of children living in single-parent homes slightly declined, while the proportion of children living with two married parents remained stable."

It almost chokes me up. 4 years ago I organized the family 'Man Camp'. It was for my 9 year old nephew. His father was a militant socialist school principal. His mother was a hairy chested feminist cnut and a public school teacher. His grandfather was a spineless beta male wimp.

So I gathered all these guys up and we camped at my secret spot in the Alberta foothills for a camp trip away from the women. The boy shot my 22. He split our firewood and built the camp fires. He set up our tent. He rode my quad. He caught a couple fingerling trout from the pond down the cut line. He had a blast. His father and grandfather were drunk by noon on all three days they were there so it was up to me to entertain the lad. No problem, there's always something to do at Man Camp!

His parents, being lefty flakes and morons, divorced later that year. His mother forbids him any contact with me because I am an unwholesome redneck influence with my guns, dogs, ATV's and fishing boat. Ordinarily it would be no skin off my ass - but it is a serious cut to my nephew. He sent me an email a couple weeks back begging me to take him out again. In deference to his mother I had to refuse. He's thirteen now, and he still remembers that camping trip as a treasured memory like it was yesterday. He is starting to display unhealthy behaviours and aggression and of course his idiot mother has tried nothing and can't figure it out. She has him in some gay arts and crafts program he hates - or so he told me.

That whole family is effed - they see nothing wrong with the way that boy is being raised and if you were to say something about broken homes and unhealthy childhood development - they would get OFFENDED!!! Assholes.

It's a damn shame. He's a good boy being written off to liberal parents. Life is a crap shoot I guess. Be thankful if your wife is a decent woman; and hug your parents if they were as well.

Properly it's not my business and I don't know your situation... but I want to say, "deference to the mother?" The nephew is more important than the mother. The next generation is ultimately more important than the prior. Nephew's life more important than principles of deference or respect to the mother.

You may have overriding concerns, I can understand that.
