WHAT WE KNOW

Father absence has rapidly increased since 1960 with the number of children growing up without their
fathers having stabilized somewhat in the past decade. Nearly a quarter of all American children live in father-absent homes. The relationship between the mother and father at birth affects later father involvement. 

 

Learning to communicate with the mother and understanding the gravity of having a child can lessen the burden of fatherhood and in turn make it a wonderful event.

The Data and Research

 

In America, 23.6% of children (17.4 million) lived in father-absent homes in 2014.

 

95% of fathers that participate in prenatal education learn coping skills that they use when the baby is born.
