Appoint a Child-Support Paying, Non-Custodial Parent as Chief Justice
By Ned Holstein, MD, MS, Founder and Chair of the Board, National Parents Organization

Chief Justice Paula Carey will be appointing her successor, the next Chief Justice of the Massachusetts Probate and Family Court. Carey will do so when she assumes her new duties as Chief Justice of the Trial Court. I submitted my letter with recommendations for characteristics for the new Chief Justice of the Probate and Family Court, as requested by the Massachusetts Trial Court. Also, the Executive Committee of our Massachusetts Affiliate submitted a letter seeking a candidate who supports shared parenting.

Massachusetts has commendably demonstrated its commitment to diversity in its elected and appointed officials. In this spirit, Massachusetts has the opportunity once again to break new ground. Read more...

This past Father’s Day, there were a few nice things written about fathers. The Boston Globe Magazine, of all places, had a very sweet number. Steve Almond wrote, “Of course, it rarely occurred to me to think about how hard my dad worked to raise us, and how little gratitude he received, until I had my own kids.”

The Wall Street Journal had a touching remembrance of a deceased dad who had fled Vietnam for Midland, Texas. “A few weeks ago I had another dream, different from the one of the family gathering. Read more...

Studies: Dads Pay Heavier Price than Moms for Taking Flex Time
June 17, 2013 by Robert Franklin, Esq.
One of the seemingly infinite complaints voiced by the anti-father crowd is that men spend too much time at paid work. It was one of Gideon Burrows gripes in his piece in the Huffington Post UK. According to them, fathers’ working forces women into childcare which, presumably, they’d never do were it not for those selfish dads. Read more...

Vancouver Dad Fights Law, Mom to Be a Father to His Child
June 16, 2013 by Robert Franklin, Esq.
As I said in my last piece, timing is everything. It’s as if Gideon Burrows’ scurrilous article in the UK version of the Huffington Post was the cue for various bits of information to pop up that clearly refute what he was saying. Here’s another one (Vancouver Sun, 6/12/13). Read more...

UK Organization Slaps Pop Culture for Denigration of Dads
June 14, 2013 by Robert Franklin, Esq.
I suppose timing is everything. No sooner had Gideon Burrows’ thoroughly ignorant and misandric piece come out in the U.K.’s version of the Huffington Post than this article came out in the Daily Mail (Daily Mail, 6/11/13). Read more...

Burrows Redux: Reversing the Genders
June 13, 2013 by Robert Franklin, Esq.
This 'woman manifesto' should start with what really is the issue in workplace equality: that women simply aren't doing their fair share, and that their failure to do so is resulting in a raw deal for the fathers of our children, the men we are supposed to love. Read more...

“I’m excited about the opportunities National Parents Organization brings to Kentucky families. Too many families have had one parent, usually the father, denied his or her parental rights by the family courts. This damages not only the ousted parent, but the children too. I believe that proper education and people’s good inner spirit can lead to a better path: shared parenting.”

"Everyone complains of absentee fathers, but it is so difficult to get the courts to allow joint custody, let alone full custody, or even court-ordered visitation that actually works in real life. We are trying to do our part to help by working with these young men and bringing National Parents Organization to Pennsylvania. "

By Kate and Richard Bayer, Members, Executive Committee, Pennsylvania
