    Importance of Fathers

    Ahem.

    According to researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore, children who have fathers in their lives learn better, have higher self-esteem and show fewer signs of depression than children without fathers. In addition, children who perceive their fathers as supportive feel a greater sense of social acceptance and show fewer signs of depression. The study is among the first to examine from a child's perspective -- the role a father plays in the behavioral and mental development of his children. The findings will be presented on May 13 at the Pediatric Academic Societies and American Academy of Pediatrics Conference, in Boston, Massachusetts.
    You're both dead wrong, your arguments flying in the face of reality.

    It's not a matter of "enforcement" so much as what you want to promote. We've witnessed the harm that can be done to society when the state inadvertantly promoted illegitamacy through welfare programs. It's in the best interest of the state that procreation occur within marriage.

    On average, children raised without fathers are more likely to show signs of psychological maladjustment, they are more likely to have difficulties at school, difficulty in getting even to underperform, or to drop out of school early, to have less school completed. They are more likely to be represented in the statistics on delinquency and unconventional social behaviour, and they seem to have difficulty establishing and maintaining intimate relationships, particularly heterosexual relationships once they move into adulthood.
    Truth stings, I realize this. Like a mistletoe on your chest, truth can sometimes actually bite....you're both not even close here.

    Fallen Fathers: Children Without Fathers Statistics

    63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (US Dept. Of Health/Census) – 5 times the average.
    90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes – 32 times the average.
    85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average. (Center for Disease Control)
    80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes --14 times the average. (Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26)
    71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average. (National Principals Association Report)
    75% of all adolescent patients in chemical abuse centers come from fatherless homes – 10 times the average. (Rainbows for All God’s Children)
    70% of youths in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average. (U.S. Dept. of Justice, Sept. 1988)
    85% of all youths in prison come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average. (Fulton Co. Georgia, Texas Dept. of Correction)
    Truth...it hurts.

    Denial ain't no river in Egypt, Boys!

    The 2003 Parent and Family Involvement in Education Survey of the National Household Education Surveys Program (n = 12,426) shows that 28% percent of White students, 39% of Hispanic students, 69% of Black students, and 36% overall live without their fathers. In bivariate comparisons, absent-father status is associated with reduced well-being: worse health, lower academic achievement, worse educational experiences, and less parental involvement in school activities. When socio-economic factors are controlled, father-absence is associated with small deficits of well-being. The findings suggest that the conventional wisdom may exaggerate the detrimental effects of father absence.

    You're both dead wrong, status equal to colossal error. Blind and naive to what amounts to a national disaster, I truthfully expected more. This isn't an arguable issue, can we move on to another?

    Ah....absent a mother, yes, that should work out twice as good, you're right.

    In fact, I think we should just remove the mother from the home with the same %'s we do the father and look at the results. I mean...we already have a prison system where the number one common denominator they share is no father living in the home. Fathers..or lack of have a serious influence on who daughters take for husbands, mothers play an equally vital role.

    Pretending like you people do strengthens my argument to the objective reader, I hope you know that.

    I know. He's rambling and blathering on about single parent homes and here we all thought we were talking about gay marriages.

    But I guess to him sticking to the topic...well that's just ca-ca-ca-Crazy. One might even call it..."poppycock".
