Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Although an annual event in this country is the celebration of Father's Day, but many of the statistics uncovered by the author of this paper show a civilization which is rapidly becoming a fatherless society. Never before have so many men abandoned their children. In 1986, this country crossed an important landmark--for the first time in this nation's history a majority of poor families were father absent (U. s. Bureau of Census on Poverty, 1992).
