Why is the father figure 'position' in our country so vacant ? This site addresses that question to some extent.
First I would like to say that I know there are still good fathers out there. Fathers who care about and love their children and are attentive and supporting with their wives. This is about a crisis with the fathers who don't care . The page that I found is about that father. It is pretty sad that they make this topic into a college course because of its' widspread occurance in our country. .
The best part about this site is the PROGRAM READINGS and the SELECT BIOGRAPHY ON THE FAMILY CRISIS DEBATE parts . If you want to do research and reading about this crisis in our country with disappearing fathers , this is where to start.
Here is a book that you might want to check out of the library . It will be of help to your daughter who has been abandoned by her father. It makes me sad just writing this. My own daughter is in this situation and it still tears at my heart. Papa Was A Rolling Stone: A Daughter's Journey to Forgiveness captures the pains of hundreds of thousands of daughters especially in Black America with absent fathers. Prof. Lee E. Meadows of Walsh College describes it as "a stunningly vivid account of a parental void that should resonate with readers"
The ISBN is a number that you can use to find the book at the library . If you are not sure how to use it , just ask a librarian . I hope and pray that this book helps some young girls and young women in their journey to forgiveness.

More information about the book :
A touching and compassionate story, "Papa Was A Rolling Stone: A Daughter's Journey to Forgiveness", exposes the painful experience of father absence in America. Robin Wright King describes her account and struggle to understand why the 'first man she wanted to love her' did not. She elegantly articulates the impact of his absence while sharing her journey to forgiveness and the vitally important role that fathers play in the lives of their daughters. She examines this national fatherlessness epidemic for African American females and all women, and issues a call to action to alter behaviors responsible for 'Baby Daddy's and 'Baby Mama's.
