"... Any attempt at alienating a child from the other parent 
should be seen as a direct and willful violation of one of the prime duties of parenthood..."


This public service message is brought to you by Disco Dan.

It takes a MAN to be a Dad! 

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AGAINST (men):
Fathers as the victims of VIOLENCE & ABUSE (Often ignored, often falsely-accused, some Fathers tough it out and take it...)


STATE OF FATHERING IN THE USA
Fathering (These stats & their sources belie an unfair state of affairs that is being endured by MANY good and decent Fathers...)

"Never give up!  Never give up!  Never give up!"


SHOCK(ing) TREATMENT -  We have a DYSFUNCTIONAL social and legal system!  

FACT: Half as many Men file for divorce as do Women.
FACT: Proportionately, twice as many Mothers default on child support payments as do Fathers.
FACT: Billions in government dollars aid Mothers, whereas virtually no family assistance programs exist for Fathers.
FACT: Social studies have shown that fully 50% of Women feel that a Father's presence within the family is if no value.
FACT: Four out of 10 children live alienated from the presence of their Fathers or are denied contact due to willful acts of the Mothers.
FACT: Courts are 9X more likely to order child placement with a Mother (research shows no grounds for the denial of primary placement with Fathers).

"The Best Parent is Both Parents..."  


Social policies in the United States have rarely included support for fathers -- to help them keep their families together. While trillions of dollars are being spent on welfare (primarily for women and children), comparatively, virtually nothing is being allocated on the behalf of Fathers.  Resources such as United Way exclude services for Fathers. State court systems have globally circumvented Fathers since before 1880 (refer to: "Hart vs. Hart 14 Philadelphia Reports 352"), leaving social services for Dads in a void...   The present, "winner take all" legal process (dealing with family law matters involving children), is emotionally and financially damaging to children and families --  BOTH social policies and the legal process need to be reformed.

"Integrity is telling yourself the truth.  And honesty is telling the truth to other people..."

"What magnifies the risk of  abuse for children is not the presence of a father, but his absence..."
 


"Hey Mommy," the child asked, "Do Dads go to heaven, too?"

"Of course they do," responded the Mother. "Why do you ask?"

"Well, I just never see any pictures of Angels with whiskers."

The Mom replied, "I can assure you that Good fathers do go to heaven."

She added, "But you see honey, for some, it's a very close shave..."


Practice this thought: Try to figure out what you can learn from the most "difficult" person in your life...
