Journal 8

One of the factors I wrote about in my essay was the effect of a fatherless home has on a child.  I did some research online and studies have shown children that grow up in a fatherless home are at a dramatically greater risk of drug and alcohol use, mental illness, suicide, poor educational performance, teen pregnancy, and crime.  Children who are raised by a single mother usually have bad behavior in school and other areas. This explains a lot about the kids in Ordinary Resurrections.  Many had problems with school and problems at home, it's almost certain that maybe that would have not been the case if a father figure were around for these kids.

Facts on Fatherless Kids


  1. The website looked very informative and looked like it could help out. And i do agree that children have bad behavior without their fathers in their lives.

  2. The website you chose was very good. I like your point on children who are raised by only their mothers get into trouble.

  3. I saw the website. i really liked it. it tells how having two parents at home helps a child focus more and do better at school and also having better relationships.
