It took 8 years for the mainstream media to finally get around to reporting the truth about mothers' role in fatal child abuse, which is a travesty to the children who might otherwise have been spared murder and serious abuse by mothers. No government internet source has yet presented the full story, which is available in hard copy at 800 394-3366. Casanet http://www.casanet.org/library/abuse/nis-study-93.htm barely gave the statistics in this study honorable mention and the DHHS web site is devoid of all the important related facts.
What they didn't want you to know is that 1,009,970 children are "maltreated" every year, 906,075 of them by natural mothers, which means that natural mothers abuse 63% more children than natural fathers and 8.4 times as many children as are abused by other men. The statistics for serious abuse are even worse: natural mothers seriously abuse 88% more children than natural fathers and 17 times more children than other men. There is no category in which natural fathers abuse more children than natural mothers. Even in moderate and inferred abuse, natural mothers abuse 50% and 44%, respectively, more children than natural fathers.
Natural mothers seriously abuse and moderately abuse 16 times more children than other men, they seriously abuse 38 times more children than other women, and overall they maltreat 48 times more children than other women.
If you carefully consider the consequences of the following comparison to other statistical sources, you will realize the role the federal government played with the media in demonizing the safest place in the world for America's children: with their biological fathers:
Table 64, Page 6-11 of this report, entitled "Distribution of Perpetrator's Sex by Severity of Outcome and Perpetrator's Relationship to Child" shows the following data (See the original chart here):
One other aspect of this table deserves comment: the overall pattern of sex differences across the perpetrator categories appears to hold at each severity level. Overall, more of the children maltreated by their birth parents were maltreated by their mothers, whereas those maltreated by other parents and parent-substitutes or by other perpetrators were more often maltreated by males. From what can be determined, this appears to be true for children who suffered inferred injuries or impairments, those who suffered moderate injuries or impairments, and those who suffered serious injuries or impairments. The data were insufficient to allow this question to be addressed for children who suffered fatal injuries or impairments.
The Census Bureau reports that the median household income of a two working parent family is $51,950, of a one working parent family is $36,786, and of a single-mother household is $18,000:
NIS-3 shows that more than 19 out of 20 of most forms of child abuse occur in households with annual incomes less than $15,000. This means that very few children in families, maybe less than 1%, are subjected to any form of abuse. The following asymptotic curves never touch the x-axis, theoretically, but in reality the number of children physically, emotionally, sexually, or educationally abused or neglected in families is extremely small.
The inference is that two incomes or higher incomes is responsible for reducingchild abuse. The reality is that it is the presence of the father in both one working parent families and two working parent families which is responsible for both the higher incomes and the reduced child abuse.
Outlawing single-mother households would not only cut child abuse by more than 95%, but it would eliminate the need for CAPTA, implemented by the Mondale Bill, which currently costs taxpayers more than $285 billion per year.
