    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 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.

    Fatherless Children You Are Not Alone

    in Current Events

    Happy Father's Day To All of the Responsible Fathers Take the Presidential National Fatherhood Pledge    Fathers Footprints - "Walk a little slower daddy," said a child so small. "I'm following in your footsteps and I don't want to fall. Sometimes your steps are very fast, Sometimes they're hard to see; So walk a little slower, Daddy, For you are leading me. Someday when I'm all grown up, You're what I want to be;Then I will have a little child Who'll want to follow me. And I would want to lead just right, And know that I was true; So, walk a little slower, Daddy, For I must follow you." Special Guest Father Spotlight - Ken Thomas.   Fatherlessness is a crisis in America, one that undergirds many of the challenges that families are facing. When dads aren't around, young people are more likely to drop out of school, use drugs, be involved in the criminal justice system, and become young parents themselves. President Obama grew up without his dad & said that being a father is the most important job he has. That's why he is joining dads from across the nation in a fatherhood pledge...that we'll do everything we can to be there for our children and for young people whose fathers are not around. www.fatherhood.gov   Resources for Fathers    Watch A Scripted Episode of An Absent Father  

  • Top 10 Affects of Parenting on Children

    in Motivation

    Liam Cawley of Ireland asks;


    It is sad to hear of the passing of Bobbi Christina Brown yesterday. Was her death due to bad parenting or can we hold parents responsible for their children? Is that too much of a burden to lay at anyone's feet? That anyone can be responsible for another soul? I know my own relationship with my parents is good but it wasn't always so and I blamed my mom particularity as a teen for a lot. Looking back now I could have being more considerate of her and her attempts to do her best with a child(me) at times that was so hard to deal with. Also as children and parents alike what can we each do to make life more fulfilled/loving etc for all involved because I can only imagine being a parent has its challenges but perhaps being a child has too as was the case with Bobbi. Kindest regards Nadia.
