Studies show, fathers play an intricate role in the development of a child

When a father is not present in the life of a boy, they are more prone to:

  • grow up with anger issues
  • mistreat women
  • become resentful                                                                                                      
  • show abusive behavior
  • turn to drugs, alcohol and gangs
  • become poor decision makers

When a father is not present in the life of a girl, they are more prone to:

  • have self-esteem issues
  • become involved in unstable relationships
  • become promiscuous
  • look for love in all the wrong places
  • become insecure
  • become unstable in their thinking processes
