When it comes to our modern-day cultures, there is one thing that seems to be missing: initiation. We are over-mothered and under-fathered, and as a result, we have lost the ability to mature into adulthood. This lack of initiation can be seen in many aspects of our society, from the way we raise our children to the way we interact with each other as adults.
Fatherlessness is a growing epidemic in the United States. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 24 million children – one out of three – live without their biological fathers in the home. That number jumps to 72% for African-American children and 53% for Hispanic children. Boys who are raised without fathers are more likely to engage in criminal activity, use drugs and alcohol, drop out of school, be unemployed, and experience poverty than boys who have fathers in the home. In this video, we will explore the effects of fatherlessness on boys and discuss how we can help them overcome these challenges.
In the documentary “Society Without Fathers,” young bull elephants in Africa were shown to be acting out of character. Park rangers found that there were no older bull elephants in the area, which left the young males without any role models. This is just one example of what can happen when young men lack fathers or father figures in their lives. In this “society without fathers,” most men are over-mothered and under-fathered. This can have disastrous consequences for both men and society as a whole
In the documentary, we see how the lack of fathers can lead to antisocial and violent behavior in young men. We also see how this lack of father figures can lead to a society where there is no real power structure. Instead, we see a society where charlatans and addicts are in charge. This is not a healthy way for society to function.
It is clear that we need fathers in our lives. Fathers play an important role in helping to shape the character of their sons. They also help to provide a stable and positive influence in our lives. When elders are absent, we see the negative effects that this can have on both individual men and society as a whole. We need to make sure that we are doing everything we can to support fathers and fatherhood. This is the only way to ensure that our society will be a healthy and thriving one.
