What’s the Purpose? It’s a serious injustice problem It isn’t fair for children to have serious depression stages for their fathers actions and decisions. Children are seriously affected from this and it’s time for a change!
Serious Affections Boys and girls are exposed to gangs. Due to feeling lonely, some commit suicide at very young ages. Mood swings (depression, phobias, sadness, etc) Poor grades and some drop out of school. Serious alcohol and drug usage.
Statics On Affection According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 24 million children in America -- one out of three -- live in biological father-absent homes. 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. Even after controlling for community context, there is significantly more drug use among children who do not live with their mother and father.
