An important new study of British pre-school children finds boys to be significantly underperforming girls in every area of the country, in every socio-economic category, in every ethnicity and race. The report sounds the alarm calling the consequences for boys “potentially devastating and lifelong.” Here’s an article on the report (Save the Children, 7/18/16).

Will wonders never cease? The Guardian newspaper has never been a friend to fathers or to reasoned discourse on issues plaguing family courts and the unfortunate parents and children who find themselves there.

Recall from yesterday’s piece that the mother had given birth in secret and told the father three days afterward that the child had lived but a very short time after delivery. She even forged a birth certificate so saying. All agreed that she did so for the sole purpose of deceiving the father into not filing the necessary notice with the Alabama Putative Father Registry. The facts of the matter aren’t disputed, but for reasons that remain mysterious, her procurement by fraud of his non-registration got a pass from both courts.
