    Do you know if anyone has conducted research on what causes father absence? According to my research there is not.

    Is there a clear definition of father absence? According to my research there is not.

    How can organizations like the National Fatherhood and National Center for Fathering and the media continue to claim there is a father absence crisis without a clear definition for father absence and/or no research as to what causes father absence?

    I believe there are far more good people than bad people in this world. Therefore, I also believe the responsible, active dads far outnumber the irresponsible, absent dads.

    I’ve written about my observations on father absence in 2 books. Much of the research I did disputes the degree of father absence proclaimed by fatherhood organizations like the NFI and NCF. The book titles are The DADLY Way: 10 Steps to More Active Fatherhood and Equal Parenting and DADLY Dollar$: How Marketing to Dads Will Increase Revenue and Strengthen Families.

    Would you like me to send you a copy of the books?

      Dear Mr. Hilling,

      You should direct your inquiry to those organisations. We would be interested to hear about any response they would provide.

    I don’t doubt all of this is true. But I think it’s a mistake to put it down to fathers not being in the home per se. After all, the kids of WWII casualties grew up without fathers but were for the most part OK.

    Rather, I think what we see here is also the result of bad genetics. Dads who don’t stick around and the women who choose these type of men are more likely to pass on flawed intelligence and personality traits. Scientists just tied 52 genes to intelligence. If people don’t think this matters, they’re being willfully blind.

      Interesting observation. But was the post war generation truly well adjusted? The 60s did not come out of nowhere.
