Fortunately, legislators are now beginning to see the results of what happens to children when they are left in single mom home, and single mom homes, with boyfriends. Child Abuse statistics as reported by the Department of HHS. It is time for legislators to act to protect children by protecting and insuring dads involvement .
President Obama’s fatherhood initiative bill that failed in 2006 while he was Senator, has been reincarnated by Senator Bayh and it will pass, this time. Although there are some dads that will see this bill as flawed, it is a step in the right direction to bring dads back into relationship with the children and end the cycle of Domestic Violence inflicted on them by the perps who hurt them, Biological Moms and Moms with boyfriends. (BM)
This group, BMs, combined accounts for 44.4 percent of domestic violence against children.
The second group Biological Dads and others (BD), account for 18.8 percent of domestic violence against children. The third group is both mom and dad at 16.8 percent. Children are safer in a married parents home.
The statistics are clear. Children are only marginally more at danger with Biological dad and Other alone by 2 percentage points!!
But with Biological Mom and BF? These perps go up by a whopping 27.5 percent!!!
Statistically, that means after divorce dads and new wife and girlfriend account for 2 percent increase.
On the other hand moms and new husband or boyfriend account for a 27.5 percent increase with biological moms responsible for 22 percent increase!! in violence against their own children!!
Biological Dads = 2 percent increase !!
Bioligical Moms = 22 percent increase !!
Children experience a 1100 PERCENT INCREASE in domestic violence by their biological moms alone.
It is time for legislators and judges to put dads back in homes, and end the terror that children experience when their daddy is gone……..and it is just mommy!
