When I told the young man that I know why young women are angry, he was all ears. I've been to courtrooms where young girls are charged with assaulting one another. This might lead you to believe that the anger is between the ladies, but that's only a symptom of a greater problem. Judges will sentence young people to anger management counseling as a band-aid that never heals deep wounds.
Abuse is something that happens to one out of every three women. If you study history or work with young people, you will know that violence against women keeps increasing. You can only beat somebody down for so long until they erupt like a volcano. Fatherlessness has been a contributing factor to the increasing number of young men who end up dead or in jail. Guys get girls pregnant and then show the ultimate disrespect by abandoning them.
Putting young men in prison further solidifies the abandonment process. Poverty is related to fatherlessness and young women bear the physical and emotional weight of raising fatherless children. Behavior problems with children are magnified when there's only a Mom in the home. Suicide, along with drug and alcohol abuse are higher in homes without fathers.
Ladies are fed up with being treated like throw away trash. Teaching young men how to honor and respect young women has to be a priority. It is a priority at Youth With A Purpose. but we need help. Our numbers are growing. Each month we have several activities that serve guys and girls. We are targeting those who are 18-30 yrs. old because they can learn respect and then teach the younger boys and girls.
There are may ways to get involved. Please call us if you're interested. 716-830-8240. Thanks for your time. Go do something nice for somebody. Jesus loves you and so do we.
