Father Absence, Father Deficit, Father Hunger

Psychology Today
According to the 2007 UNICEF report on the well-being of children in economically advanced nations, children in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. rank extremely low in regard to social and emotional well-being in particular. Many theories have been advanced to explain the poor state of our nations’ children: child poverty, race and social class. A…Read More

Parental Alienation Syndrome - THE FLORIDA BAR JOURNAL

How to Detect It and What to Do About It by J. Michael Bone and Michael R. Walsh Although parental alienation syndrome (PAS) is a familiar term, there is still a great deal of confusion and unclarity about its nature, dimensions, and, therefore, its detection.(1) Its presence, however, is unmistakable. In a longitudinal study of 700 "high…Read More

15 Things All Dads Of Daughters Should Know

Having daughters is one of the greatest joys I could…Read More

Por qué algunas mujeres prefieren la custodia compartida?

La madre que acuerda un régimen de guarda compartida no es menos madre que aquella que se decanta por un sistema de guarda monoparental. Resulta innecesario explicar el porqué. En cambio, quizá sí es necesario divulgar los motivos por los que la custodia compartida no es sólo el deseo de un progenitor (el padre), sino que también quizás una necesidad para la mujer en la sociedad actual. Pues sería contradictorio que en una sociedad que queremos cada vez más igualitaria, se reservase el papel de la crianza de los hijos solo a las mujeres. Hoy en día, una mu... more »


  1. Help us stop false allegations of domestic violence. Keep our children from hurting because of lies! Created by Petition2Congress - 15,543 Actions Taken So Far

  2. The Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution has been interpreted to provide EVERY AMERICAN with the CONSTITUTIONAL right to self-representation, if they so choose. That privilege, like all other constitutional rights, should be enjoyed without fear of harassment, prejudice, or abuse. Furthermore, no law, regulation, or policy should exist to abridge or surreptitiously extinguish that right.

    Self-Represented Litigants have no less of a right to FAIR and MEANINGFUL due process under the federal and state constitutions as those individuals who choose to utilize an attorney for their legal affairs and issues. In fact, NOWHERE in any state or federal constitution does it specify that the hiring of a lawyer is a prerequisite to exercising one's due process rights. Democratic principles dictate that we have the right to freely choose between self-representation and hiring a lawyer to handle our legal matters without suffering humiliation, prejudice, or penalization. After all, it is the parties to the litigation that ultimately have to deal with the consequences of the case's outcome, and not the judge or the lawyers involved in the matter.

    Contrary to the view of certain judges and lawyers, those who opt to litigate their own legal matters without an attorney are NOT second-class citizens deserving of contempt and injustice. Instead, they are BRAVE CITIZENS with an inalienable right to have their legal causes adjudicated objectively and justly -- with or without a lawyer. Self-representation can be a difficult, time-consuming, and often frightening experience, especially for those burdened by demanding work schedules, family responsibilities, and other obligations of day-to-day living. Accordingly, those who engage in the difficult task of self-litigation should be REVERED for their COURAGE and DEDICATION, not scorned or abused.

    We also need to amass momentous opposition against those persons, agencies, and institutions who, in the interest of protecting huge profits, careers, and prestige, subject self-litigants to a hostile and often abusive litigation atmosphere calculated to suppress self-representation and force people to become completely and financially dependent on lawyers to gain "paid" access to a taxpayer-funded legal system.


    Activist sometimes exhibit impatience with theory - often for good reasons. They have seen nonviolence caught in an ideological net in which the purity of ideology eclipsed activity and the nonviolent effort was undermined by a deflection of energy. But nonviolent theory is absolutely necessary. It introduces to the world a new strategy for resisting evil without creating new evils and becoming evil ourselves. But more important, it articulates a new way of being that yields a vision of peace more powerful than all the armies of all the nations of the world. (Peace is the Way, 2000)

  3. The NJ-AFCC Special Projects Committee reviewed many different Children's Bill Of Rights from organizations across the United States. The Children's Bill of Rights developed by the American Bar Association, Section of Family Law, came closest to elaborating all of the conflcit issues that can arise for children in divorce and family dissolution cases. The NJ-AFCC Special Projects Committee used that Bill of Rights as a model, and revised and extended it to better meet the needs of children in New Jersey, and around the world.

    We invite all professionals working with families in conflict, and those working to assist children in their efforts to cope with the parental conflict that often arises during divorce and family dissolution, to adopt this Bill of Rights for Children in Divorce and Dissolution Actions. We do ask that you give NJ-AFCC credit for developing this Bill of Rights, in any reprinting or distribution of the bill.


    1. The right to be treated as important and separate human beings with unique feelings, needs, ideas, and desires, not existing solely to gratify the needs of their parents.

    2. The right to not participate in the painful games parents play to hurt each other, or be put in the middle of their battles.

    3. The right not to be a go-between or a message courier for their parents.

    4. The right to a continuing, relaxed, and secure relationship with both parents.

    5. The right to express love and affection for, and receive love and affection from, both parents.

    6. The right to know that expressions of love between children and parents will not cause fear, disapproval, or other negative consequences.

    7. The right to know that their parents decision to divorce is not their fault.

    8. The right to know that it is not their responsibility to keep their parents together.

    9. The right to continuing care and guidance from both parents.

    10. The right to age appropriate answers to questions about the changing family relationships, without placing blame on either parent.

    11. The right to know and appreciate what is good in each parent.

    12. The right to be protected from hearing degrading or bad comments about either parent.

    13. The right to be able to experience regular, consistent, and flexible shared parenting time with both parents, and the right to know the reason for changes in the parenting schedule.

    14. The right to have neither parent interfere with, or undermine, parenting time with the other parent.

    15. The right to not be forced to choose one parent over the other.

    16. The right to express their feelings, concerns, and ideas about the divorce.

    17. The right to remain a child without being asked to take on parental responsibilities or to be an adult friend or companion to either parent.

    18. The right to the most adequate level of economic support that can be provided from the best efforts of both parents.

    19. The right to continue ongoing positive relationships with the people (friends, neighbors, grandparents and extended family) who were an important part of their lives before parental divorce.

    This Bill of Rights was adopted from "The Children's Bill of Rights" developed by the American Bar Association, Section of Family Law, and was modified and expanded by the NJ-AFCC Special Projects Committee (Jeannette DeVaris, Sam Forlenza, Donald Franklin, Sandra Saul, Phil Sobel, Frank Weiss.)
