Why Do Dads Matter?
When dad doesn’t get involved, his children are two to three times more likely to:
- Engage in drugs, alcohol, violent crimes, and other harmful behaviors
- Drop out of school
- Live in poverty
- Face teenage pregnancy
- Struggle with depression and even commit suicide
There are 24 million children affected by father absence.
That is more than the number of Americans living with all types of cancer, Alzheimer's, and AIDS, combined. The effects of wide-spread father absence on the health and well-being of children are severe.
