    This book has been on my radar for years ever since it was cited by Jeffery R Holland in an important address given some time ago I wish I had read it earlier I wish everyone would read it Each time I hear of another couple with children breaking up I can't help but feel sorrow for the short sighted decisions of one or two adults who are all too willing to disrupt their children's well being for a lifetime because of the

This book has been on my radar for years ever since it was cited by Jeffery R Holland in an important address given some time ago I wish I had read it earlier I wish everyone would read it Each time I hear of another couple with children breaking up I can t help but feel sorrow for the short sighted decisions of one or two adults who are all too willing to disrupt their children s well being for a lifetime because of their own wants and needsIn sobering detail David Blankenhorn documents the undoing of the time honored role of fathers in contemporary society to the point where experts now advocate for other models of fatherhood and even redefining the term father itself What a legacy the feminist movement and its resulting divorce culture have left us with families and society increasingly in shambles In a very calm tone the author methodically cites study after study demonstrating statistically worse outcomes for children raised in fatherless homes particularly those whose mothers are divorced living with boyfriends or who have chosen motherhood absent any father at all through artificial insemination one night stands single parent adoption etc And he does so by uoting the outlandish ideas and philosophies of leading experts people with PhDs who believe that their learning also makes them wise who advocate for mix n max parenthood androgynous parenting men becoming like women and vice versa and otherwise demonizing and relegating masculinity and manhood to the bygone ages of barbarism Hollywood and contemporary culture celebrate the modern family and for decades now society s focus has been on improving methods for getting out of marriage better divorce not preserving it and we place a premium on child support payments and alternative father figures while ignoring that what children really want and need are their fathersThe author offers interesting perspective about this phenomenon being deeply rooted in the core ideals of America at its foundation which itself was a divorce from Great Britain and monarchical rule The American ideal prizes the rights and freedoms of the individual But like anything taken to an excess idolizing the power of one unfettered can leave many damaged in the wakeIn an age where we worship individualism and the right of two spouses even now mix n match spouses where mothers and fathers are both expendable to part paths and find happiness again and fulfillment in new relationships in an age where we value emasculated men and empowered women who deny the undeniable reality of complementarity that each sex brings to relationships and parenting too often we do so at the expense of children and at our own peril Children do not need nurturing school curriculums books and other media affirming their plight as children without parentage teaching them that they have many fathers or that some families don t have fathers at all and telling them they are all right and that it s all okay The author clearly points out that such wishful thinking does nothing than impose adult fantasy on children and minimize the child s reality which does not change This book is a sad reminder that now 18 years after it was written we live in an even braver new world where the adult s wants are valued far above what is best for children and where the prevailing message is that it s all good despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary What children really want is their fathers What children really need is their fathers

Blankenhorn has some very interesting things to say about absent fathers in America He s spot on in many ways and writes persuasively when it comes to a number of our social problems and how they are linked at root to absent fathersMarriage is an institution that has allowed for civilization to evolve virtually every culture does it in some form or another Fatherhood is a cultural invention designed to domesticate masculinity particularly male aggression by giving men a social purpose since a father s biological contribution is complete at the moment of conception while a woman carries a child for nine months Some of the most disheartening facts in the book1 Boys who grow up without fathers are subject to hypermasculinity violence and being incarcerated 2 Married women are four times less likely than unmarried or divorced women to be the victim of domestic violence 3 Daughters are at much greater risk of being sexually abused by a stepfather or boyfriend than by their biological father since they don t share biological ties with a stepfather and thus there s no incest taboo and no biological father to protect them Ultimately Blankenhorn seems to be a realistpragmatist His assertion comes across as one of common sense prevention rather than creating expensive and far less effective social programs
