    Fatherless Children

    in Lifestyle

    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.

    Fatherless Children

    in Spirituality

    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!

    Fatherless children and the impact of not having one

    in Culture

    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.

     Children in grades 7-12 who have lived with at least one biological parent, youth that experienced divorce, separation, or nonFather involvement in schools is associated with the higher likelihood of a student getting mostly A’s. This was true for fathers in biological parent families, for stepfathers, and for fathers heading single-parent families.union birth reported lower grade point averages than those who have always lived with both biological parents.

    Father involvement in schools is associated with the higher likelihood of a student getting mostly A’s. This was true for fathers in biological parent families, for stepfathers, and for fathers heading single-parent families.



  • Children without Their Biological Fathers

    in Christianity

    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?'"

  • #FLOTUS Please Speak About the Wrongful Detention of Children for Prostitution

    in Family

    #FLOTUS Please speak about detaining children for prostitution. As the First Lady of the United States of America, you represent the role and duties of a woman, mother, and wife.  You have done a wonderful job of addressing obesity in our children and recognizing the importance of #62MillionGirls and their need to be educated.  However, with all due respect, your voice is needed to address the plight of millions of girls who are victims of human trafficking and child sexual exploitation in America, many of whom are being arrested, detained and convicted as "child prostitutes."  The recent passage of SB 178 Justice for Trafficking Victims Act 2015 and the Trafficking Victim Protection Act 2000 (reauth 2013) does not prevent the arrest of these victims.When girls are refused an opportunity to reach their their potential, we all suffer.   Faced with the adverse collateral consequences associated with the stigma of criminal records, these women and children will be forced to resume a life of prostitution.  Will you please speak about the wrongful detention of children for prostitution?

    "For these are all our children, and we will profit by or pay for whatever they become." James Baldwin
