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.
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.

It's All For the Children
Children are the inheritance of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is His reward. Please consider the enormous responsibility involved in raising children in righteousness. There is no greater task required of man than to lead children in the right path and provide everything necessary for their growth and protection. God requires parents to raise their children in the fear of God and to protect them from all harm. But what are people to do when the culture and society is making room for things that debase and demoralize people? The present generations are witnessing terrible crimes and abuses of children and this is the rotting of the whole of society.
