Research consistently confirms that children who are raised without fathers face significant challenges in many areas of their lives. Over 80% of men that are in jail were raised without fathers; over 80% of girls that get pregnant as teenagers are from father absent homes. The children that are raised in father absent homes are more likely to be abused, to use drugs, to drop out of school to become depressed and even to kill themselves. Yet, over the years, America has gradually become the country with the most homes without fathers in the entire world.
The issue of absent fathers has been linked to many social concerns, and it is regarded by many as one of America’s most significant challenges. Several theories have been promoted over the years, which attempt to find root causes for this very complex issue. Mothers have also been giving their versions of the story for many years.
According to many fathers, however, the versions that many mothers usually give, are quite often neither complete nor correct. In this new book, "Why Fathers Leave," Psychotherapist, Dr. Percy Ricketts shares information on this very important issue, based on his conversations with over 200 fathers of diverse backgrounds, who left their families. Many of their versions are surprising, because they were not socialized to express their deepest feelings openly.
