Maybe you've already heard increased reports of divorce, but have you considered some of the negative effects that broken families have on children?
Research has shown that children of divorce are at a greater risk to experience health issues including asthma, headaches and speech defects than children whose parents have remained married. In fact, they are 50% more likely to develop health problems than children from families with a father and a mother.
Even worse, the troubled childhood from broken homes often spills over into adulthood. Surveys show that 7 out of every 10 long-term prison inmates grew up in a broken home. According to the World Health Organization, someone commits suicide every 40 seconds. People who come from broken homes are almost twice as likely to attempt suicide than those who do not come from broken homes.
Furthermore, figures from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime show that almost 60% of murders of women are committed by family members and intimate partners.
Now as you read this, you basically have two options on how you can act today.
You can choose to ignore all this and pretend this has nothing to do with you. If you ignore this, you will have to keep on complaining about rising rates in murdered women, drug and substance abuse, molested and even murdered children, teenage pregnancy, and so on. (By the way, several social science studies have shown that these societal ills and more can be traced to troubled homes.)
The only other option you have is to get involved in building more balanced individuals and happier homes. Join the movement to use your skills to help to save a child who desperately needs your help.
