Raising kids: being religious helps

Heritage Foundation has the facts about kids from intact families with strong religious affiliations versus those with less strong religious affiliations and those with non-intact families. The intact/religious do better. The non-intact/religious do better than the other three. Read it all. Fascinating stuff.

Just a taste:

Teens from intact families with frequent religious attendance were the least likely to have ever shoplifted. Teens from intact families with frequent religious attendance were the least likely to have ever shoplifted (6.1 percent) when compared to (a) their peers from non-intact families with frequent religious attendance (7.9 percent), (b) peers from intact families with low to no religious attendance (9.9 percent), and (c) peers from non-intact families with low to no religious attendance (12.3 percent).
