SORT BY Relevancy
Juvenile delinquency is a pressing problem in America, with a rise in the number of
single parents that are raising children without the financial, emotional, and relational help of
another adult. Unlike studies conducted in the past, many researchers have begun to focus on the
influence of a father-figure, not just the influence of the mother on his/her child. Whether the
quality of relationship or amount of time that is spend with a father-figure has a positive impact
is unknown. However, it is clear that the subjects who have been adjudicated are in need of
effective prevention and programming efforts.
It is important to empathize that father-absence does not necessarily lead to delinquency,
developmental deficits, and/or render the child with an absent father-figure inferior in
psychological functioning to the child with a present father-figure in their lives. Children who
have absent-fathers are far from a homogeneous group with almost an infinite number of patterns
that can be specified. Many factors need to be considered in evaluating the father-absent
situation including the length of separation from the father, type of separation, cause of
separation, the child’s age and gender, the child’s constitutional characteristics, the mother’s
reaction to the father’s absence, the quality of mother-child interactions, the family’s
socioeconomic status, and the availability of surrogate models.
The number of family risks to which children are exposed often best predicts how well
children will be able to adjust in the world and conform to social norms.
John 5:19-30 "I can only do what I see my father doing."
Where are the absent fathers in this day and age? Young men as well as women need their natural fathers as a role model. I know that some of these young people father may have died but where are the men that will take the place of the absentee father,
The philosophy of non-violence is not one of fear but of fearlessness in the face of violence. Much of the violence in the urban community is self inflicted by yesterday's neglected, rejected and abused children who have now come of age and are terrorizing the neighborhoods with senseless violence. The adults who draw youth into organized crime capitalize on broken homes, absent fathers and overwhelmed mothers and grandmothers. The evil of guns and drugs is just as deadly as police with fire hoses and attack dogs in keeping communities in a state of terror. Can Dr. King's strategy of non-violent direct confrontation work in ridding neighborhoods of street violence? How? Community Activist, Coach and Candidate for 20th Ward Alderman Ernest Radcliff explains how his nonviolent work with youth has been successful.

Join us as we continue our Whose Watching Who? Series Part 4 "IMAGING VS I'M AGING!" We're in 2015 and unfortunately, as we're fighting for equal rights, too many are still stuck on whose IMAGE is better. Society has caused a division among women of color against caucasian women from the beginning of time. It's time we build on the Solution rather than the problem.
Women of all nationalities are being judged by the color of their skin. Our girls are judged from birth as well as our sons.
Join us to discussion how we can break the curse of division. Remember we all are part of the cause and effect.
