Fathers Absence The influence of father absence during a child's development is a rich and complex theme. An examination of the impact of such absence, in conjunction with the various different individual features of each case, on the psychological, intellectual and behavioral development of children and adolescents is indispensable. This theme awakens special interest nowadays because of the modification of the modern family structure, in which an increasing absence of fathers is observed. When a kid’s father dies, there is no solution unless the mother gets remarried. When the father is alive and knows he is your father, but neglects to care for or acknowledge his kid, is what is being abused. No good comes from a life without a father. Two parents are better than one without question. If one were to believe that any good can come when you raise children without a father, my question is, why? How do you? How do you expect a kid to go out in a word from a fatherless family, and adapt into a rather masculine world? Do you believe that children can develop everything they need with only a mom, when another child can gain so much more from both parents figures than just a mother? There is no way that a kid will grow up completely without a father, the kid will have a difficult and complicated life. A child can grow up without a father physically but it’s impossible to grow up mentally in a right way. I think raising a kid and just going away without taking care of the kid is one of the biggest mistakes in people’s life. Kachichyan 2 The influence of a father's involvement on academic achievement extends into adolescence and young adulthood. Numerous studies find that an active and nurturing style of fathering is associated with better verbal skills, intellectual functioning, and academic achievement among adolescents.11 For instance, a 2001 U.S. Department of Education study found that highly involved biological fathers had children who were 43 percent more likely than other children to earn mostly As and 33 percent less likely than other children to repeat a grade Mothers and fathers obviously parents differently. If children have the combination of what mothers and father bring to parenting, they will have a fuller perspective on life and how to deal with certain situations. Mothers are affectionate, tend to be more comforting, emotional and enforce to safety of their children Fathers concentrate a lot on discipline, raising obedient children, enforcing success, and a father figure is more physical. When little boys see how fathers treat their mothers or how their fathers deal with certain situations, do you think it affects them in the future? When they see the love, attention and protection their father provides, they will know what to expect in a future relationships with another man. In one word, when parents spend they time taking care of their kid, the kid will have much better and successful life As we read in the story “drown” by Junet Diaz , the absence of the father affects the life and attitude of both yunior and his mother. The story was mainly about his experiences with his friend beto and his relationship with his mother. The absence of his father leads to a loss of discipline in his life As his father isn’t around like he used to Ynior lives alone with his mother.
