As measured by a range of indicators, the impact of growing up in a fatherless home is simply devastating. As AFPI has emphasized:
85% of American children with behavioral disorders have been raised in fatherless homes.
Fatherless children are three times more likely to be behind bars by the time they turn 30 than children raised in two-parent households.
Children raised without a father are also more likely to abuse drugs and exhibit delinquent behaviors.
