Father's Issues / I saw this in Sunday's Paper...
« on: Dec 04, 2006, 10:55:15 PM »
I saw a Dear Abby'ish editorial from the Dallas Morning News.

[a href=http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/fea/columnists/consejos/stories/DN-NSO_consejos_1204liv.ART.State.Edition1.3e17e78.html]Dallas News.com/consejos[/a]

I couldn't believe the response by the advice columnists.  They were all more than willing to just write the dad off, because the mother was afraid.  She admitted that he was a good father.  She admitted that she took part in the fighting that made the young child cry and shake.  She asked for strategies to help her better handle the situation, but the columnists all agreed to take the child from the father.  

There are many other alternatives to removing the father.  It just goes to show how the younger generation sees the role of the father.  They make too many assumptions about the father without really knowing enough about the case.  They heard only one side of the story and ran with it.  

Such good advice from young and inexperienced advice columnists.  (NOT)

The sad thing is that it looks like a whole generation is lost.  A mother can do no wrong, even when she admits it.  She admitted to fighting in front of the child.  It caused the child cry and shake, but it is somehow only his fault?  The mother is kind enough to "allow him to visit her on a regular basis" even though it may be court ordered and the court has already addressed the issue.  Somehow these young advice columnists are smarter than the judge who saw the rest of the information.

I'm not pro abuse, I am against domestic violence.  But what about the rest of the story?  Where is the common sense, dv shelter, police and etc?

Any comments?  

I am going to write a letter to their editor tomorrow.

***Update****

I had to post to their forum.

I was out scouring the net for information about equal parenting time.  I was suprised to find this information at the Republican Party website for Washington State.

Father's Issues / Frustrated.
« on: Jan 15, 2004, 03:03:55 PM »
Hi,

Nothing really to say.

I just feel sad and depressed.  This crap isn't easy.  I'm getting tired of it all.  I try and try and nothing seems to matter.  The court doesn't want to deal with what they see as old news.  

I had court today.  It was the same old railroad.

I've never been able to get the truth out.  

I just want to let the people who come to this site that it's hard on all of us here.  

I don't know what to do.

Father's Issues / Round 4 --- throw rocks at boys....Claire's
« on: Jan 14, 2004, 09:43:40 PM »
I took my daughter to Claire's today to buy my daughter some things.
I saw hats with the "Boys are Stupid....Throw rocks at them" slogan.

Can I get some help on this?

Customer Service - Claire's/Icing by Claire's
Phone:1-800-CLAIRES (1-800-252-4737)
E-mail:customerservice@claires.com

I'm writing an email tonight.

Thanks,

FatherTime

Here is a changed version of Brent's sample letter to Universal Studios:

I am writing in regards to some extremely offensive merchandise offered for sale by Claire's.

I'm referring specifically to the "Boys Are Stupid, Throw Rocks at Them" hats that Claire's sells.

I would hope that Claire's will also have a sense of social conscience and opt do the right thing by pulling these hats from your stores. Selling these hats may be amusing to some, but the message they send is offensive to many, and insensitive (at best) to half the population.

My family does not condone violence towards anyone and I would never allow my daughter to wear a hat that suggested they assault another human, especially based on their gender. These shirts are a fine example of gender-based hatred and discrimination, and they are a discredit to Claire's' integrity as a responsible and ethical corporate citizen.

In addition, these hats are an insult to anyone who has ever spent money at Claire's. I was appalled that Claire's would offer this kind of merchandise, and  I will not patronize a corporation that promotes violence against children. Most people no longer find these kinds of messages to be "humorous" or acceptable, and they vote with their wallets and pocketbooks.

Rest assured I will never take my children to visit Claire's, or spend money in any Claire's store. In addition, I'll take every opportunity to explain to people I meet how Claire's promotes violence against children by the sale of these incredibly offensive and hateful products.

I'm sure you would agree that a hat promoting violence against girls would be in extremely poor taste, and would be boycotted by any number of groups, such a the National Organization for Women. A hat promoting violence against boys is no different, and I hope that you will act accordingly to prevent Claire's from helping to perpetuate violence against children of either gender.

I welcome your comments and look forward to hearing from you.

I was looking through the social security website and found a form for you to fill out and explain your situation.  Maybe you can get your daughter's last known address through them.  

You could use her last known address to file in that jurisdiction and post in a local paper the summons to appear for the child custody determination.  You would also have to serve a copy to the address given by the social security administration.

I hope this can help
