Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization

[Attachment(s) from Yuri Joakimidis joakimidisyuri@yahoo.com.au [euro-dads] included below] https://www.nationalparentsorganization.org/recent-articles?id=22102  Following up on my post of yesterday… There I made the point that we can’t seriously expect fathers to act the part of dedicated, selfless parents when our culture simmers in a toxic stew of anti-dad messages. Amazingly, even with all the obstacles placed between men […]

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/relationships/11284758/Non-dom-dads-the-forgotten-men-of-single-parent-families.html Official attitudes towards non-custodial fathers are several decades out of   date, leaving them effectively cast out of society, writes Neil Lyndon  ‘No matter how devoted he may be, a father who does not live with his children will almost certainly find it impossible to be recognised as an equal parent’ Photo: Alamy                                                                                  […]

In Australia, More of the Same on Children’s Overnights from the Anti-Dad Crowd

By Robert Franklin, National Parents Organization

https://nationalparentsorganization.org/recent-articles?id=21798  One way or another, Jennifer McIntosh and her colleagues who oppose fathers having overnight care of their children before they reach age five just never quite seem to go away. And when they poke their heads up, they always seem to be saying the same things and those things always seem to be at […]

A SPECIAL MESSAGE TO MOMS: FOSTER YOUR DAUGHTER’S BOND WITH HER DAD POST-DIVORCE – USA

By Terry Gaspard MSW, LICSW movingpastdivorce.com

http://lw4sp.org/blog/2014/6/3/a-special-message-to-moms-foster-your-daughters-bond-with-her-dad-post-divorce Father’s Day is quickly approaching. Even in the 21st century, far too many children living in reconstructed families are suffering from being separated from their fathers or not reaping the rewards of shared parenting.

Warshak Paper May Influence Child Custody Decisions in Australia

Robert Franklin Esq. National Parents Organization Parents@NationalParentsOrganization.org

The last redoubt of the anti-father crowd is being breached. Read about it here (Sydney Morning Herald, 4/28/14). For decades, the data on children’s need for fathers have been building up. Over 20 years ago, prominent family sociologist David Popenoe was able to say that some 30 years of social science information demonstrated that children […]

Movement on fathers’ overnight access

Bettina Arndt, published in The Age, Melbourne

                Barriers constraining divorced fathers having their young children stay with them overnight may be lifted, with key family law organisations revising policies blocking overnight care of infants and toddlers.   The rethink follows the publication of an academic paper endorsed by 110 leading international experts challenging the policies. The paper is highly critical of […]

Empty days, lonely nights

Bettina Arndt

http://www.theage.com.au/national/empty-days-lonely-nights-20140428-37e3e.html  A belief that children under three should not stay overnight with their separated or divorced father has underpinned our family law system for years. Has it all been a mistake?  Bettina Arndt reports. Across Australia, fathers are being told in mediation sessions or by lawyers that there’s no hope of overnight contact with children […]
