Do Children Really Need Fathers?
Recently I read an interesting statement, posted somewhere online by a woman, that do children really need fathers? and a child can grow up more healthy without a father. And she was not talking abusive fathers; she was addressing normal dads.
Let’s pull a small statistics about how “not important” dads are, and we will speak again. Because we love numbers. Numbers you can’t deny. You can try and deny numbers, but you’ll only make yourself look like a fool.
- 63% of the suicides among teenagers are from fatherless homes (US Dept. Of Health/Census).
- 90% of all homeless children in the USA are from fatherless homes.
- 85% of all children who show psychological disorders come from fatherless homes.
- 80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes.
- 71% of all high school dropouts come from homes without fathers.
As you can see, fathers are not important, clearly. It’s better we have psychopaths, murderers, rapists and suiciders on the US streets.
I’ll not be surprised if people try and question even the US Department of Health. Logic can’t be bought. The logic you either have, or you don’t.
Also, researchers at the Columbia University found that kids living in two-parent households with a poor relationship with their father are 68% more likely to smoke, drink or drug abuse. Losers from the early age. It’s actually not funny, but kind of disturbing and very sad.
85% of all youths in prison come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average. (Fulton Co. Georgia, Texas Dept. of Correction)
There’s clearly a problem people avoid, because you probably never read this numbers, yeah? So this info is kind of hidden, not widely available. I recently found these statistics and I was totally mind=blown by the text.
Here some more food for you:
71% of pregnant teenagers lack a father. [U.S. Department of Health and Human Services press release, Friday, March 26, 1999]
And something really sad again:
43% of US children live without their father [US Department of Census]
You know, smart individuals say the fathers are normally the counterweight to “mental sickness”. If the father is gone, the scales tips to the side, hitting the rock bottom.
Truth is women need a man so the family can function properly. And we’re not talking “have a man to change the bulbs and do the repairs” here. We’re talking “divorce and single-motherhood hurt the kids”. No dads = no life. Simple as that. Or no dads = lack normal life.
No dads = retarded inadequate incomplete life.
Some kids will later try and fill that “father gap” with drugs, alcohol, violence, or the best variant of all — find a father figure. This could be an older friend, 10+ years older. This could be the grandfather, uncle, cousin, brother of a friend, cousin of a friend.
If someone’s trying to fill a gap, something’s missing.
It’s so obvious.
And the other bad thing about these kinds of situations is that often children will get brainwashed by their single moms. The mom will try and slide her stupid agenda on the nothing unsuspecting kid, which will do some major damage in the long run! Or they will try to compensate the deficiency of specific traits by spoiling the kid and turning it into one huge slimy burger.
Maybe women should start dating men that have a job, want to have a job or business, are responsible, and want to have children. Maybe women should stop dating creeps and “poco locos”.
And oftentimes some women will see this and use it as an AR-15 full with ammo. They will attack with “Men need to step up and do their job” — they will twist the facts. Funny thing is most of the times exactly women initiate the divorces and the courts take children away from their fathers. Fact.
Little girls and boys both need a dad. But boys looks like take the hardest blow. Their self-esteem takes a solid hit, and it starts as early as in the middle school. And about girls, girls will look for men who hold the patterns of a “good dad”. Or they will watch too much movies. Boys on the other side will form themselves after their dads. They will look for their father’s approval in everything they do and copy that behavior, because peoples are social species that mostly learn by copying behavior (copycatting).
Nothing else is too be said for now. Only to be thought.
