A child has a right to live in a society where his or her parents and community protect his or her right to live in an “unbroken” environment. With the absence of either parent, a child is placed “at risk.”
Protect children from being court ordered into well-known, high-risk categories. Children from single parent homes account for
85% of youths in prison.
71% of school drop-outs.
71% of teenage pregnancies.
90% of homeless and runaways.
75% of drug abusers.
63% of youth suicides.
Clearly, moms and dads are important, and children are more successful when they have access to both.
It is our responsibility to promote, to protect, and to foster a child’s well-being and best potential outcome.
