Why We Should All Care About The Fatherless Daughter Syndrome

In Canada, 80% of father-deprived adolescents are in psychiatric hospitals according to The Canadian Children’s Rights Council.”

No. That is so wrong it’s ridiculous. What the numbers mean is that 80% of the adolescent population in psychiatric hospitals are father deprived. And that’s not in Canada, that’s in the States. The source of these numbers is mentioned right underneath:

“ Sources: National Fatherhood Initiative (U.S.A.), US Bureau of Census (U.S.A.), FBI (U.S.A.)”

All I did was a copy paste of your sentence and I found the source.

It’s really unfortunate that this article has been shared so many times. I don’t care enough to go through the other numbers in it, but I’d bet my spare change that most are as inaccurate as the example above.

Like what you read? Give swanpr a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
