ABOUT YOUR SON

 “How can a boy become a man, without the help and direction of a man?”


No matter how old, or young a child is, the influence of Dad plays a vital role in their development. This is significantly important in the life of a son since his Dad is the first example of a man he’ll see and learn from.

 

But who will he pattern his life after if Dad’s missing?

We Want to Help

Our goal is to support families, single mothers and sons growing up without the influence of DAD or a positive male role model. We believe that the presence of a quality man, helps sons and boys Choose Greatness and we’re here to help.

Are you a single mother raising a son without help or support from your son’s dad?

Are you looking for a way to emotionally support your son despite a missing dad?

Do you know a son growing up with little to no interaction with his natural dad?

 

The Effects of Fatherlessness:

As single mothers, only you know the pressure and impact of raising your son alone. No one, but you, can truly explain the hurt and disappointment that you have overcome as a single mother, for the sake of your child or children.

To help further our understanding of the effects of fatherlessness, we have found and listed 6 ways fatherlessness impacts children below.

1. Poverty

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.

2. Drug and Alcohol Abuse

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services states, “Fatherless children are at a dramatically greater risk of drug and alcohol abuse.”

3. Physical and Emotional Health

A study of 1,977 children age 3 and older living with a residential father or father figure found that children living with married biological parents had significantly fewer externalizing and internalizing behavioral problems than children living with at least one non-biological parent.

4. Educational Achievement

Children in grades 7-12 who have lived with at least one biological parent, youth that experienced divorce, separation, or nonunion birth reported lower grade point averages than those who have always lived with both biological parents.

Children living with their married biological father tested at a significantly higher level than those living with a nonbiological father.

5. Crime

Adolescents living in intact families are less likely to engage in delinquency than their peers living in non-intact families. Compared to peers in intact families, adolescents in single-parent families and stepfamilies were more likely to engage in delinquency. This relationship appeared to be operating through differences in family processes—parental involvement, supervision, monitoring, and parentchild closeness—between intact and non-intact families.

6. Sexual Activity and Teen Pregnancy

A study using a sample of 1409 rural southern adolescents (851 females and 558 males) aged 11 – 18 years, investigated the correlation between father absence and self-reported sexual activity. The results revealed that adolescents in father-absence homes were more likely to report being sexually active compared to adolescents living with their fathers.
