Statistics

71% of all high school drop outs, 75% of adolescents in substance abuse treatment centers, 85% of youths in prison, and 90% of homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes. (www.thefatherlessgeneration.wordpress.com)

Fatherlessness costs America approximately $100 BILLION dollars per year. (fatherhood.gov)

When fathers are involved in the lives of their children, especially their education, their children learn more, perform better in school, and exhibit healthier behavior. Even when fathers do not share a home with their children, their active involvement can have a lasting and positive impact. There are countless ways to be involved in your child’s education at all ages. (fatherhood.gov)

Research shows that even very young children who have experienced high father involvement show an increase in curiosity and in problem solving capacity. Fathers’ involvement seems to encourage children’s exploration of the world around them and confidence in their ability to solve problems… Highly involved fathers also contribute to increased mental dexterity in children, increased empathy, less stereotyped sex role beliefs and greater self-control. (fatherhood.gov)

When non-custodial fathers are highly involved with their children’s learning, the children are more likely to get A’s at all grade levels. (fatherhood.gov)
