British government study shows that kids of married couples are less likely to be anti-social

I love how science keeps catching up to what Christians have known for 2,000 years. Marriage obviously matters.

Starting in 1997, approximately 3,000 children between the ages of three and 16 were examined for the impact of several factors – including their family’s income, social class, and marital status of parents – on grades and behavior.

The study’s results, which were originally reported by The Independent, show that the marital status of parents was a critical factor in children being more confident, responsible, and less anti-social.

“The marital status of parents in the early years, when children were first recruited to the study, was also a significant predictor of changes in self-regulation during secondary education and pro-social behavior,” the study says.

“Students in lone parent families showed small but statistically significant increases in both negative behaviors and decreases in both positive behaviors,” the report continued. “In addition, students of parents who were living with their partner but unmarried in the early years were found to show small decreases in self-regulation and pro-social behavior and an increase in hyperactivity.”

The study concluded that by age 16, some 11 years into the study, that “there are weaker effects linked to parents’ marital status, although there is a tendency for poorer self-regulation and pro-social behavior and increased hyperactivity and anti-social behavior for those from single parent families.” (Source)

  1. Western Science and Law since The Greeks also considered certain races,and females inferior,and therefore could not vote. Promiscuous recreational sex of every kind is conditioned and reinforced in our schools to innocent,impressionable schoolchildren by adult pagan teachers, and homosexual activists etc.,from Kindergarten through university today in this Democracy.Numerous Longitudinal Psychological Behaviour Studies have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt,that Traditional Family Values have the highest success rates among families. The Secular Pagan Scholars Peter Singer,and “Created From Animals” James Rachels etc.,and their Secular Pagan majority disciples appear on the opposite side of the Political, Legal and Educational debates. The New Western State Worldview/Religion of so-called “neutral” Secular Paganism interprets what it considers to be Law,and Science for everyone.

    The Fascist Nazi Government and Supreme Court passed over 400 laws to justify their Worldview,but The Western State Worldview/Religion was not so-called “neutral” Secular Paganism then. Recall The Tyrannical Fascist National Reich Church Articles imposed on all people and Churches! About 100 Religious leaders were put in concentration camps,and the rest complied. In our democracies political apathy and indifference by voters has also led to Political Tyranny.
