The U.S. Has The Highest Rate Of Children Living With A Single Parent In The Entire World
The following comes from Pew Research…
For decades, the share of U.S. children living with a single parent has been rising, accompanied by a decline in marriage rates and a rise in births outside of marriage. A new Pew Research Center study of 130 countries and territories shows that the U.S. has the world’s highest rate of children living in single-parent households.
Almost a quarter of U.S. children under the age of 18 live with one parent and no other adults (23%), more than three times the share of children around the world who do so (7%).
And here comes an interesting point:
Of course it wasn’t always this way. If you go back to 1960, less than 10 percent of all American children lived with a single parent…
And then, it asks, “What happened?”
My response...Women’s Lib!
Well, this article claims television, movies, the education system, and most politicians assure us that it’s okay to run around like wild animals doing whatever we like doing.
The end results are discouraging. Children raised in poverty and lower educational goals. And a lower fertility rate.
There is no future for any society that does not value children, marriage and family. You can’t show me one example in human history of any society that has ever thrived for an extended period of time without cherishing those institutions.
So, what do we do to turn it around?
