According to studies, 1 out of every 3 children in the U.S. live without their biological father; children who grow up without their father are more likely to suffer from emotional problems, abuse alcohol and drugs, quit school, and are likely to become poor.
The effects of anger on fatherless young men is devastating, often setting them up for a lifetime of failure.
Anger is an understandable response for young men with poor upbringing, but as an adult we are responsible for overcoming it. A blaming and victim mentality grows when we refuse to do so, and victimhood has become an epidemic in today’s America.
The victim mentality grows a sense that a debt is owed by society to the victim. Therefore he is justified in “taking back” in a misguided attempt to even the score. Crime, likewise, is raging out of control in our society.
