Majority of school children are fatherless!

Time for all adults to take responsibility 

Mike Rowe, best known as the host of the Discovery Channel series “Dirty Jobs,” took to Facebook on Tuesday to bemoan the “epidemic of fatherlessness,” which he said affects every level of society.

While discussing an anti-bullying program for his web series, “Returning the Favor,” Rowe considered the connection between the rates of fatherless children and the societal ills of bullying, poor educational achievement, homelessness, suicide, and violence.

Citing statistics, Rowe argued in a Facebook post that children, especially young men, who grow up in homes without a father are at a distinct disadvantage.

AD• 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes – 5 times the average. (US Dept. Of Health/Census)
• 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes – 32 times the average.
• 85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average. (Center for Disease Control)
• 80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes – 14 times the average. (Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26)
• 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average. (National Principals Association Report)
• 43% of US children live without their father [US Department of Census]

Rowe noted that, like bullying, the majority of school shootings are perpetrated by individuals from fatherless homes.

“Is it really so surprising to learn that a majority of bullies also come from fatherless homes?” Rowe asked. “As do a majority of school shooters? As do a majority of older male shooters?”
