Father means being a leader; a model for his child to copy to advance their life. A father's responsibilty goes far beyond being a sperm donor, a father's true responsibilty is to be a protector and provider, a good example to further the life of his children in a good way.
In the history of African slaves in America from 1619 to 1865 and beyond, the father was stolen from his children, his ability to be the protector and provider and a model of excellence for his family was taken from him. The master knew that strong fathers would only produce strong families which would be counter productive.
How do you make a "Fatherless Child"? You do so by destroying the childs respect for his father; by reducing him below the level of a responsible man, incapable of being the protector and provider, and then take over his responsibilty and become the childs protector and provider. In time although you may still love your father, you will loss respect for him.
Adam was called Father Adam, the leader of physical man created from dust and Abraham was called Father Abraham, the leader of mans spiritual development.
Today satans workers are continuing his work of deceite, destorying the African American fathers image and turning his children into puppets for their $$$ benefit. Drug dealing, gang families, haters of self, baby daddys, prison, murders of self, no stability.
The solution: To be discussed.
Did your father play a role in your life as a child? Does your father play a role in your life as an adult? Has the absence of your father hindered your life? Do you have resentments towards your father for this reason? My father was not in my life and he did not play any role in my upbringing. Because of this issue, I faced so many obstacles in my life as a child and a man. This issue has impacted the lives of so many of us! It is time to break the cycle.

children from fatherless homes are more likely to be poor, become involved in drug and alcohol abuse, drop out of school, and suffer from health and emotional problems. Boys are more likely to become involved in crime, and girls are more likely to become pregnant as teens.
– Children in father-absent homes are almost four times more likely to be poor. In 2011, 12 percent of children in married-couple families were living in poverty, compared to 44 percent of children in mother-only families.
There is significantly more drug use among children who do not live with their mother and father.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services states, “Fatherless children are at a dramatically greater risk of drug and alcohol abuse.”
Data from three waves of the Fragile Families Study (N= 2,111) was used to examine the prevalence and effects of mothers’ relationship changes between birth and age 3 on their children’s well being. Children born to single mothers show higher levels of aggressive behavior than children born to married mothers. Living in a single-mother household is equivalent to experiencing 5.25 partnership transitions.

Fatherlessness in the U.S. remains a prevalent issue as the number of children living apart from their biological fathers is estimated to be nearly 30 percent (or roughly one in three), according to 2011 Pew Research data.
The number of children living apart from their biological fathers has more than doubled over the last four decades amid a growing decline in nuclear families.
In 1960, 11 percent of children lived apart from their biological fathers as compared to 27 percent in 2010.
One Christian artist says he hopes his music will spark conversations about the growing problem and bring healing to families across the nation.
In August, acclaimed singer/songwriter Brian Nhira released his new single "Back Where You Belong" from his debut album Hope's Stand. The powerful track is described as an "anthem for the fatherless," and Nhira told The Christian Post about how a shopping trip to a local Walmart inspired the song.
"The song was inspired by an experience I had as a college student," Nhira, a graduate of Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, told CP. "I went to this Walmart (across the street from campus) and one of the things the Lord was highlighting in my mind was these mothers who were there shopping with their kids and struggling to look after their kids and shop at the same time. And so the question arose in my mind 'Where is the father?'"
1.) Who do you think is qualified to mentor in any area of life?
2.) What are the dangers of single mothers raising boys without any male role models?
3.) What can the body of Christ contribute to assist in helping single parents raise their children in a good and Godly moral way?

Do Your Kids Respect You? 9 Ways to Change Their Attitude
By Janet Lehman, MSW
We often forget that children aren’t born with a built-in sense of respect for others. While each child has a different personality, all children need to be taught to be respectful. From birth, kids learn to manipulate their world to get their needs met—this is natural. But it’s our job as parents to teach them respectful ways of doing this.
People wonder why kids have gotten so much more disrespectful these days—we see children and teens arguing with adults (or ignoring them outright), using foul language, copping an attitude, and not using manners or respecting those in authority. Sadly, this has become the norm for many children and teens. In my opinion, it really is a different world right now than the one we grew up in. Movies, music, video games and television all seem to glorify a disrespectful, angry, rude way of dealing with others. This means that in some ways we have to work harder as parents to teach our kids to be respectful. Added to this is the fact that parents are also busier than ever before, which makes it much harder to respond immediately to our kids. Let’s face it, it’s easier to let things slide when you’re worn out and stressed from working so hard.
