Fatherless Generation

I'm working on a book review for a future article. The book is called Fatherless Generation by John Sowers. I just re-read these sobering stats about the impact fatherlessness is having on our country. Here's what it contributes to:

63 percent of youth suicides

71 percent of pregnant teenagers

90 percent of all homeless and runaway children

70 percent of juveniles in state-operated institutions

85 percent of all youth who exhibit behavior disorders

80 percent of rapists motivated with displaced anger

71 percent of all high school dropouts

75 percent of all adolescents in chemical abuse centers

85 percent of all youths sitting in prison.
