Event offers knowledge, advice, inspiration for fathers
Research in the United States and New Zealand shows that children who don't have a father figure in their lives are three to seven times more likely to have an unwanted pregnancy in their teenage years.
The U.S. Census Bureau tells us that children in father-absent homes are five times more likely to be poor. In 2002, 7.8 percent of children in married-couple families were living in poverty, compared to 38.4 percent of children in female-householder families.
