Single Parenting from a Father's Heart:
A Back-To-Basics Guide for Both Sexes

Emily W. Card

Synopsis

Children who grow up without a father's positive influence, regardless of the circumstances (that might include divorce, death of a spouse, out-of-wedlock birth, or adoption) are: Five times more likely to be poor, Twice as likely to drop out of high school, Three times more likely to become unwed teen mothers, More likely to end up in foster care or juvenile-justice facilities, More likely to grow up unemployed, incarcerated, or uninvolved with their own children.

Is it true that a father's positive influence is essential to the welfare of his children? If so, why? What are his parenting values, his traditions, and his beliefs?

Steve Horner, a full-time single parent of two boys, from their diaper days to their high school years, shares a father's point of view straight from the front-line trenches of single parenting-and straight from the heart. He leaves nothing out.
