The US is the world's leader in fatherless homes.

I read these stats on the other day and thought I would share them.

This is not to beat any of us dad's up but to empower us to go for it as dads.

Children from fatherless homes are 10 times more likely to use drugs,

14 times more likely to commit rape,

9 times more likely to drop out of school

20 times more likely to end up in prison

85% of youth in our prisons came from fatherless homes.

71% of high school dropouts come from fatherless homes.

90% of all homeless & runaway children are from fatherless homes.
