    Default Fatherless Kids Fun Facts

    I was looking at some statistics that state 33% of US Children are raised in fatherless homes and then I started looking at the consequences:

    • 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (Source: U.S. D.H.H.S., Bureau of the Census)
    • 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes (Source: Center for Disease Control)
    • 80% of rapists motivated with displaced anger come from fatherless homes (Source: Criminal Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26, 1978.)
    • 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes (Source: National Principals Association Report on the State of High Schools.)
    • 70% of juveniles in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes (Source: U.S. Dept. of Justice, Special Report, Sept 1988)
    • 85% of all youths sitting in prisons grew up in a fatherless home (Source: Fulton Co. Georgia jail populations, Texas Dept. of Corrections 1992)

    Add a culture that makes sees men as dispendable (incarceration and war) and the recipe is perfect for aggression!

    Do you know if they secluded race as a variable in this study? I be really interested to know how this factors in? Or gender/ses?

    also, that data is like mad old brah.
