In our headlong rush to provide opportunities to girls–something I am in favor of doing. We have forgotten how important men are in children’s lives. The statistics are frightening. Having a father present, makes it less likely that boys will drop out of school or end up in jail, but it also makes it less likely that girls will engage in dangerous activities and early sexual relations. An intact family is much less likely to be or stay in poverty. So, I made up a quote and an early father’s day card. I think it would also be appropriate to say—Like a child needs The Father!
“A child needs a father—
like a fish needs water.”
