    A 'dad' is tenth most popular Christmas list request for children with youngsters happy to forgo the latest iPad, toy or new pet, a survey has found.

    When it comes to Christmas, it might be safe to assume children will ask Santa for an extensive list of toys, games and treats.

    But a survey of their typical lists for Father Christmas has shown many have more serious concerns, requesting "a dad" instead.

    Thank goodness many kids that age havent been completely "rope a doped" by their socialist masters with political correctness just yet.

    Thanks to government, sometimes it's impossible for kids to get a dad, mom, or both. Take it from me, I know.

    Are you truly that dense Nova? What NJCardFan is referring to is those parents that can't be with their families because they're in the military serving overseas and are unable to be with their loved ones on Christmas because of it.

    What about welfare that requires the mom to be separate from the dad in order to qualify for the maximum benefits. And the more young ones you have out of wedlock, the 'merrier'.

    There is nothing in his post to suggest that. Given his occupation, I assumed he meant because they were either locked up or watching those who are locked up. In those scenarios, you are talking about adult choices which deprive a child of his parent/s rather than government force.

    I think he's referring to the government BS he has been experiencing with regards to being a foster parent and adoption.

    I'm sure he'll clear it up when he comes back on.

    Because of laws and regulations, adoption is very, very costly. I'm getting off cheap at $12K. I've contacted adoption agencies who's fees are as high as $50K. In NJ, if you marry someone with kids and want to adopt those kids, you have to go through an adoption agency and pay the fees involved. I know of 2 families going through this, one had raised his wife's daughter since she was a baby and is now 16. If the government got out of the way it would be as simple as getting a lawyer to draw up adoption papers and filing with the court.

    Fathers disappear from households across America

    Nicole Hawkins‘ three daughters have matching glittery boots, but none has the same father. Each has uniquely colored ties in her hair, but none has a dad present in her life.

    As another single mother on Sumner Road decked her row-house stoop with Christmas lights and a plastic Santa, Ms. Hawkins recalled that her middle child’s father has never spent a holiday or birthday with her. In her neighborhood in Southeast Washington, 1 in 10 children live with both parents, and 84 percent live with only their mother.

    In every state, the portion of families where children have two parents, rather than one, has dropped significantly over the past decade. Even as the country added 160,000 families with children, the number of two-parent households decreased by 1.2 million. Fifteen million U.S. children, or 1 in 3, live without a father, and nearly 5 million live without a mother. In 1960, just 11 percent of American children lived in homes without fathers.

    America is awash in poverty, crime, drugs and other problems, but more than perhaps anything else, it all comes down to this, said Vincent DiCaro, vice president of the National Fatherhood Initiative: Deal with absent fathers, and the rest follows. >>>

    The near-total absence of male role models has ripped a hole the size of half the population in urban areas.

    Thank LBJ and his war on poverty to really get the ball rolling in the most significant way.
