Fatherless Homes Now Proven Beyond Doubt Harmful To Children
 
Children from fatherless homes are*:
 
  • 15.3 times more likely to have behavioral disorders
  • 4.6 times more likely to commit suicide
  • 6.6 times more likely to become teenaged mothers
  • 24.3 times more likely to run away
  • 15.3 times more likely to have behavioral disorders
  • 6.3 times more likely to be in a state-operated institutions
  • 10.8 times more likely to commit rape
  • 6.6 times more likely to drop out of school
  • 15.3 times more likely to end up in prison while a teenage
  • 73% of adolescent murderers come from mother only homes
 •  6.3 times more likely to be in state operated institutions
 

Daughters who live in mother only homes are
92% more likely to divorce** So any mother preventing her daughter from seeing her dad is almost guaranteing her daughter will divorce and have troble in life with men. They do not learn to understand men when they do not have a father and can become promiscuous, afraid of men other experience other problems.
 
The net effect is that we are damaging an entire generation of children for the financial benefit of lawyers and judges.
 
* Most statistics from a 1999 report of the Department of Health and Human Services. **See the book Father and Child Reunion for more scientific studies and proof. THere is not a single study ever that shows sole custody is good for children. It is clearly harmful in virtually every case (when a parent is not physically abusive).

CHILDREN NEED BOTH PARENTS
 
It’s a Fact!  Here’s why:
     · 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes. (Source: U.S. D.H.H.S., Bureau of the Census).
     · 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes.
     · 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes.
           (Source: Center for Disease Control).
     · 80% of rapist motivated by displaced anger come from fatherless homes. (Source:
           Criminal Justice and Behavior, Vol. 14, pp. 403-26).
     · 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes. (Source: National Principals Assoc. Report on            the State of High Schools).
    · 85% of all youths sitting in prisons grew up in a fatherless home. (Source: Fulton County Georgia jail populations, Texas Dept. Of Corrections, 1992).
These statistics translate to mean that children from fatherless homes are:
     · 5 times more likely to commit suicide
     · 32 times more likely to run away
     · 20 times more likely to have behavioral disorders
     · 14 times more likely to commit rape
     · 9 times more likely to drop out of high school
     · 20 times more likely to end up in prison
 

“There is a fundamental liberty right guaranteed to both parents by the 14th Amendment. This is the right to the care, custody, and nurture of their children. According to the Supreme Court of the United States: “Absent a Compelling State Interest of harm or potential harm to the child, the State may not intervene in the privacy of family life.””

Overall, research studies show that children of joint custodians are better adjusted than children of sole custodians on each of the following measures: general adjustment; family relations; self-esteem; emotional adjustment; behavioral adjustment; and divorce-specific adjustment.

Another benefit of Joint Physical Custody is that it improves child support compliance. Researchers have found a positive correlation between the frequency of a parent’s contact with a child and the payment of child support. That is to say, the more frequent, regular and flexible the time a parent is permitted to spend with his child, the more likely he is to meet his child support obligation in full and on time. In terms of voluntary compliance, fathers who have little or no contact with their children after a divorce pay only about 34% of their child support, while fathers with regular contact pay 85% or more of theirs.

Children and Single Moms

Whether it is caused by violence or not, children living with single moms don't do well in our society. It used to be the exception.  Now it is becoming the rule and progressively worse.  Is that not child abuse too?

  1. Children from single-mother families are 2.21 times (221%) as likely to have one or more total problems than those from two-parent families, twice as likely to have an emotional disorder, etc. (The probability of this being due to chance is smaller than 1 in 1,000)
  2. Weighted projections to reflect national population of children.
  3. Data for items so annotated apply for 6- to 11-year-olds only. All other data in the table apply to 4- to 11-year olds.

Voters Have Had Enough!
85% of Massachusetts Voters Recently
Voted For Shared Parenting!
 
  • In 2003, 20,952 entries for divorce were filed in Massachusetts courts!  
  • In Massachusetts over 40,000 restraining orders are issued each year!  This 33 times more than in Virginia with a similar population! 
  • This has become a HUGE profit making endeavor for lawyers and many others.  It is all driven by the greed and desire for power of special interest groups like lawyers and radical feminists who push one way laws.
  • Allegations of family violence are the weapon-of-choice in divorce strategies.  Lawyers, and paralegals in women's shelters, call them "The Silver Bullet".  False abuse allegations work effectively in removing men from their families without due process.  The impact that the removal of fathers has on our children is horrific.
  • Massachusetts has the HIGHEST child support in the entire U.S. at about 40% of after tax income.  It is often several times the cost of raising the children.  High “child support” causes federal kickbacks that fund courts and snowballs this monster further.
  • Most fathers are loving and care deeply for their children and the vast majority pay child support as ordered, even though it is often onerous and places them in poverty.
