Fatherless kids are twice as likely to drop out from school.
The education system in the country is also impacted by fatherlessness. Children are four times more likely to be poor if the father is not around. Moreover, we know that poverty can heavily impede educational success. Fatherless kids are twice as likely to drop out from school. In a 2012 study entitled, “The Vital Importance of Paternal Presence in Children’s Lives,” we see that seven out of 10 high school dropouts are fatherless. The common root of kids’ academic problems is the lack of a healthy relationship with their father.
Fatherlessness and domestic violence
Feminists believe that males raised without fathers will treat women better, but social evidence simply does not support this. Most of the male perpetrators of domestic violence are products is called a single-parent home. They were recorded to have been denied meaningful contact with their biological fathers, and as a result denied of the experience of traditional fatherhood. In a comprehensive analysis of 42 nations in the Western world, children raised in single-parent households were considerably more likely to become victims of physical violence and sexual abuse. On the other hand, the father’s involvement in the life of a child has been proven beyond doubt to be directly associated with lower levels of child abuse and neglect, even when the family struggled from male unemployment and poverty. Compares to children of their peers, those who came from single-parent households have a:
- 77 per cent greater risk of being physically abused;
- 87 per cent greater risk of being harmed by physical neglect;
- 165 per cent greater risk of experiencing notable physical neglect;
- 74 per cent greater risk of suffering from emotional neglect;
- 80 per cent greater risk of suffering serious injury as a result of abuse; and a
- 120 per cent greater risk of experiencing some type of maltreatment overall.
The father’s involvement in the life of a child has been proven beyond doubt to be directly associated with lower levels of child abuse and neglect, even when the family struggled from male unemployment and poverty.
