More children grow up in single-parent families in Alabama than all but four states.

In all but three states fourth graders perform better in math. 

Juvenile arrests are rising.

Are we looking after our children in Alabama?

The newest Kids County survey ranking states on issues important to children's health, well-being and education ranks Alabama 48th, indicating we are not a nurturing place for children.

We need to be since protecting children is good business and good policy.  It is the foundation that leads to improvements in all facets of life.

Investing in children in their first years of life is an investment that will be returned ten fold.

Making children our top priority and making Alabama the best place to raise a child should be our goal. 

If it is, the Kids Count metrics will improve and our quality of life overall will improve. 

More active involvement by fathers is a good start.
