New York Promoting Disneyland Dads
By Rita Fuerst Adams, National Executive Director, National Parents Organization

McDonald's Happy Meal
It appears David Schorr is going to have his parenting time diminished for refusing to be a Disneyland Dad.

His son, with gratitude to a court-appointed psychiatrist and Mom, has learned how to get his way, how to play his parents against each other, and that he is in charge.

On his Tuesday dinner night with his four-year old son, his son threw a tantrum to manipulate Dad into taking him to McDonald’s. Dad held firm and told his son that they would eat a healthy dinner at the neighborhood café, or not eat.

Schorr’s son taught him a lesson by refusing to eat. Mom and the family courts are using this incidence to trample Dad and diminish his parenting time. First by Mom taking their son to McDonald’s when he was returned to her. Second, by the court-appointed psychiatrist, Marilyn Schiller, deeming Schorr, “wholly incapable of taking care of his son.” With this, Schorr’s meager parenting time may be cut by the New York family courts.

Should Men Be Able to Opt Out of Pregnancy?
November 11, 2013 by Robert Franklin, Esq.
How can an article be so right and so wrong at the same time (National Post, 11/8/13)? The topic — should men be able to “opt out” of a pregnancy — is important and timely, and the writer, Sarah Boesveld is to be commended for (a) dealing with it at all and (b) doing so in a forthright and fairly sympathetic manner.

Nebraska: Journal Star Tells the Truth About Domestic Violence
November 10, 2013 by Robert Franklin, Esq.
When it comes to domestic violence, there’s so much mis/dis-information floating around the news media, blog sites and social media that it comes as a bit of a shock when an article that’s this accurate appears in a major Nebraska newspaper (Lincoln Journal Star, 11/6/13). Read more...

Juvenile Court Judge on Child Protective Services: Bad Social Work Followed by More Bad Social Work
November 8, 2013 by Robert Franklin, Esq.
The deeds and misdeeds of child welfare agencies are always big news. I write about them frequently, and I’ve often taken the stance that, for all their shortcomings — and they are many — we should take care in criticizing caseworkers. Read more...

Australian Mother Who Committed Perjury to Do Time
November 7, 2013 by Robert Franklin, Esq.
Finally. An Australian court has taken an extraordinary step. It’s sentenced a mother to prison for fabricating evidence in a child custody case. Read about it here (The Australian, 11/6/13). It’s long been one of the great scandals of family courts that they refuse to punish parents who lie to them. Read more...

Proposed Change to Irish Law Offers Little to Single Dads
November 6, 2013 by Robert Franklin, Esq.
They just can’t seem to get it right. When it comes to simply doing the right thing, i.e. equalizing the parental rights of mothers and fathers, no one can manage to pass – or even propose – such a law. Read more...

Volunteer Testimonial

“Moms and dads are induced by the present system to conflict over their kids, while having fundamental parental liberty and privacy rights unconstitutionally infringed upon. In a number of states the National Parents Organization has been successful in improving family law, and I am privileged to be part of National Parents Organization's growth in my state.”

Daniel M. Lee, JD, Member, California Executive Committee
