Fatherless children

  1. 1.
  2. 2. What’s the Purpose?<br />It’s a serious injustice problem<br />It isn’t fair for children to have serious depression stages for their fathers actions and decisions.<br />Children are seriously affected from this and it’s time for a change!<br />
  3. 3. Serious Affections<br />Boys and girls are exposed to gangs.<br />Due to feeling lonely, some commit suicide at very young ages.<br />Mood swings (depression, phobias, sadness, etc)<br />Poor grades and some drop out of school.<br />Serious alcohol and drug usage.<br />
  4. 4. Statics On Affection<br />According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 24 million children in America -- one out of three -- live in biological father-absent homes.<br />Being raised by a single mother raises the risk of teen pregnancy, marrying with less than a high school degree, and forming a marriage where both partners have less than a high school degree.<br />Even after controlling for community context, there is significantly more drug use among children who do not live with their mother and father.<br />Sources from: National Fatherhood Initiative: www.fatherhood.org<br />
