Mark Twain • The amount of parents present in the child's life=single mom more likely to be poor
• Children in single mother household and are poor=71%
• Children in single father household and are poor=46%
• Children in a two parent household and are poor=28% • “Children living in fatherless homes are:
• 5 times more likely to live in poverty
• 9 times more likely to drop out of school
• 37% more likely to abuse drugs
• 2 times more likely to be incarcerated
• 2.5 times more likely to become a teen parent
• 20 times more likely to have behavioral disorders

exposed to violence, drugs, hunger, homelessness, abuse and mental health problems.”
