Father Factor Statistics

By June 29, 2012

Father Factor Statistics by Gary VarvelGary Varvel is the editorial cartoonist for the Indianapolis Star and took the opportunity a couple of weeks ago to prepare a cartoon-based series of statistics about children who grow up without a father in the home.  I loved his approach to reminding us of the importance of having a dad at home.  While the stats are serious dealing with issues like teen pregnancy, childhood obesity, poverty, and crime and incarceration, the drawings are clever but still add a real face to these very stark statistics.  You can see the full-page editorial cartoon and a gallery of the various parts of the cartoon that are good reminders of the positive impact that dads can have on children.
