David Kavanagh tells Ciara what happens when a child has absent parents.

An absent parent refers to a non-custodial parent who is obligated to pay partial child support and who is physically absent from the child's home. The term also refers to a parent who has abandoned his or her child and failed to maintain contact with the child.

“There would be fewer absent fathers if straight men were turned on only by women with whom they would not mind having children." - Mokokoma Mokhonoana
