It is time to resolve our ambivalence and contradictory ideas about fathers’ and mothers’ roles in their children’s lives



Big changes are afoot Down Under. And these presage changes in the U.S., Canada and Europe as well.

For the past few years, a research report issued by the office of the Australian Attorney General, with statements of its lead author, has exerted a disproportionate impact on the lives of young children whose parents are separated. Bucking the trend to keep both parents regularly involved with their children whether or not the parents live together, Australia’s guidelines, widely adopted in the U.S., have discouraged allowing young children to spend overnights with both parents after separation. In most cases such “blanket restrictions” mean that mothers do all the caregiving at night.

Nearly half of all marriages end in divorce. When they do dads are being made increasingly irrelevant in the life of their kids, often as a result of spite or malice, with tragic consequences on children, families and communities.

But all this is changing. Practically overnight. Australian professionals are shredding their guidelines in the light of two recent papers exposing the flawed science behind denying young children the pleasure of their dads’ bedtime stories. A balanced view of the research data supports common sense. If young children can take naps during the day under their fathers’ watchful eyes, they can sleep at night in their fathers’ homes. If young children can be apart from their working mothers all day long, they shouldn’t be deprived of quality time with their dads during the night.
Strong parent-child bonds begin at birth — for mothers and for fathers. Caring for children at night and being there in the morning is part of the process of developing a solid relationship. The more time parents spend with their infants and toddlers, the better able they are to read their baby’s signals and respond sensitively to their children’s needs. In two-parent homes we encourage hands-on shared parenting night and day. It takes nothing away from mother-child relationships when dads change diapers and bathe babies.
One of the game-changing papers, I am proud to say, was mine. But I had a lot of help with it. The manuscript was improved, vetted, and endorsed by 110 scholars, from 15 countries, who are at the top of their professions: Professors Emeriti, Deans, former Presidents of professional associations such as the American Psychological Association, and department heads. Collectively the group have about 10,000 publications to their credit.

We were united in wanting to make a public statement about where science stands on the issue of young children’s needs following their parents’ separation. Our goal was not just to clarify the accepted, settled science. We wanted to ensure that reliable science plays an important role in policy and decisions about young children’s contacts with each parent. Read about the consensus reporthere.

False Allegations Hurt Children!

False Allegations Hurt Children!

“When you are falsely accused (and intentionally for that matter) the pain can be crippling at times. 
That aside; I wish people cared about what their false allegations would do to the children involved. Even with the pain I suffered and the meds I now have to take on a daily basis, I would have given my life to take my children’s pain and fear of being taken from me away.” — Sara


WHAT CONSTITUTES A FAMILY OFFENSE?



The criminal behavior which has been “civilized” by Family Court Act Article 8 is defined in the penal laws.



This is a crucial aspect to determine whether or not a family offense petition makes out a prima facia case, and is too often overlooked when defending against a family offense petition. Many practitioners look solely to whether or not the alleged actions occurred.



More importantly, a judge is supposed to look at whether or not the petitioner can prove all the necessary elements of the family offense alleged and defined in the penal laws.

Each of the family offenses requires that the petitioner allege and prove intent or recklessness or a repeated course of conduct. A few of the family offenses require a prior such offense conviction.

A form of child abuse has been associated with anxiety, depression, criminality and even suicide in child victims.

A new billboard campaign will spotlight a form of child abuse called parental  alienation.

Parental Alienation is associated with anxiety, depression, criminality and even suicide in child victims.

The billboard image shows a child being pulled out of the loving arms of her father while declaring:

"I am not parental prey. Help me keep mommy AND daddy."

Dad initially (on 12/4/2008) petitioned the court for three things: 1. Pay Child Support  2. Shared Parental Responsibility  and   3. Normal and reasonable Time-sharing. On July 8th, 2010 Dad was granted by Judge Maria Espinosa Dennis: 1.  Child Support   2. Shared Parental Responsibility Judge Dennis stated in the Final Judgment that "Normal and reasonable time-sharing", like the one dad has with his son since 2004 from his divorce, will be granted upon absolute compliance with all items listed in Paragraph number 29 of the Final Judgment. 

Dad has been in Family Court compliance since October of 2010.

Judge Manno-Schurr It is in the child's best interests that contact and visits be restored SWIFTLY and FULLY11th Judicial Circuit Family Court - Inguanzo vs. Rose 08-29595 - Began: 10/27/20082012 - 

Linda J Gottlieb LMFT LCSW - 
Resumption of Visits ~

It is in the child's best interests that contact and visits with the alienated parent be restored SWIFTLY and FULLY once the suspended contact was determined to be the result of unfounded DV allegations and/or because the alienating parent had unilaterally prevented the contact.

One of the more pernicious and destructive alienating maneuvers is the leveling of false abuse allegations against the targeted parent. 

This emotional form of child abuse is by the alienating  by a parent, then the traumatic results are equal to those of children who actually had suffered abused. 

Exacerbating the damage, such allegations generally lead to the immediate suspension of all contact between the child and the targeted parent during the ensuing investigation. Not only is contact missed, it allows for the poisoning to continue with no possibility for the antidote of the meaningful contact between the child and the targeted parent. Furthering the damage to the child of the suspended contact, the alienating parent invariably informs the child that she/he has been abandoned by the targeted parent!
Paving the way for the resumption of visits and contact. Oh, really? Not so fast. This rarely happens  because the alienating parent declares to the child's attorney (Liar Greenberg) and to the family court that the child is too afraid to have contact resumed with the targeted parent; and naturally these sentiments are validated by the brainwashed puppet child.

So the attorney for the child and the attorney  for the alienating parent recommend the very slow resumption of contact----generally slower than watching grass grow. Some attorneys for the targeted parent have conveyed to me that this situation places them in a double-blind: if they ask for normal resumption of contact, the judge may deny everything. So frequently, the attorney for the targeted parent has little choice but to agree to the resumption of contact at a snail's pace and sometimes supervised.

Higher Destiny

This is her Grand Daughter Zoraya
We are born for a higher destiny than that of earth, there is a realm where the rainbow never fades, where the stars will be spread before us like islands that slumber on the oceans, and where the beings that pass before us like shadows will stay in our presence forever.
In remembrance of my mom.
