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 QUEEN ELIZABETH Hospital says it has launched a full investigation into the circumstances surrounding two maternal deaths which occurred within the last two weeks. This is according to a release issued by the institution. It said according to the established protocol, all maternal deaths are investigated by a committee led by the director of medical services and also include the head of the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Department, the director of Nursing Services, the clinical risk manager and the legal officer. "The committee was expanded by the chief executive officer, Dr Dexter James, to include a representative from the Barbados Association of Medical Practitioners to ensure balance and objectivity in the investigation. The director of Medical Services, Mr Anthony Harris will meet with the families of the deceased shortly to apprise them of the status of the investigations,” the release stated. It added that the QEH continues to provide outstanding maternal care to all expectant mothers and is considered a safe institution for the delivery of babies.

Doctors will continue to malpractice, nurses will continue to ignore patients and Barbadian citizens will get no answer and no justice. If there is a lawsuit, which we hear there is, it will be settled out of court for the most they can possible get, to wit: $250,000.00.
