There is a direct link between
absentee fathers and juvenile delin-
Behaviour change consultant,
Franklyn Dolly, believes the lack of
a strong male presence in the home
can steer a juvenile down a destruc-
An absent father causes a child
to suffer emotionally, socially and
behaviourally, Dolly said.
When the father is absent, Dolly
said, a juvenile will begin to look
for that strong father figure in other
places. Dolly said studies have
shown that criminal activity in juve-
niles increased when the father was
absent from the home.
The correlation of absent fathers
and juvenile delinquency, Dolly said,
was real and adults needed to
change their "illegal and immoral
behaviour" to stem the problem.
However, he said, there was no
quick fix to the issue, suggesting
that Government introduce, as the
first step, "character building" in
schools for students who did not
have a male presence at home.
Dolly said instead of tackling the
situation, governments have been
putting plasters on sores, whereas
"surgery" was needed.
In some instances, Dolly said,
juveniles joined gangs and commit-
ted crimes to feel superior, while
others became bullies.
"The power of joining a gang feels
good. Nothing else in their life is
working but the power they have
over their victims."
He said young men living in
depressed communities often com-
plained that when they looked at
television, listened to politicians,
leaders and employers, and observed
the police s attitude towards civilians
when a crime was committed, they
felt bullied. He observed that work-
shops to deal with juvenile delin-
quency, broken marriages and
absentee fathers were mostly attend-
ed by women, who have strong
family ties and do not need the help.
The workshops, Dolly said, are
held indoors instead of at basketball
courts, savannahs, and recreational
grounds where men frequent.

A 20-foot container truck crossed the median from the east-bound lane of
the Beetham Highway onto the west-bound lane to avoid running over a
biker who fell on the highway. He fell while trying to avoid hitting a plastic
lining from a panel van which fell in the middle of the highway on Friday.
