Ep 656 | The ‘Family Diversity’ Myth | Guest: Dr. Brad Wilcox Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey

    • News Commentary

Today we’re joined by Dr. Brad Wilcox, professor of sociology at the University of Virginia and senior fellow at the Institute for Family Studies, to discuss the importance of family structure in our lives and in society. Rates of idleness and incarceration are significantly higher among young men who didn’t grow up with a father in the home versus those who did. We discuss the data that supports this in Dr. Wilcox’s study “Life Without Father": Less College, Less Work, and More Prison for Young Men Growing Up Without Their Biological Father, which provides evidence that present fathers in the home statistically prepare boys for safer childhoods and more successful adulthoods. Then, we discuss the progressive movement’s push to replace family with the state and the hypocrisy of progressive policymakers regarding their family policy agendas.
