To all the fathers out there, the National Parents Organization wishes you the very best on your special day!
This Fathers’ Day, there’s much to be thankful for. By every measure, the move toward true parenting equality in family courts and family laws is closer than ever to the tipping point. When that day comes, the critical mass of grass-roots advocacy, the social science on children’s needs and the basic human desire for fairness will create the reality of equal parenting as the norm rather than the exception. More than ever, we see a weak opposition peddling long-debunked claims, a burgeoning movement for equal parenting and fewer and fewer anti-dad messages from pop culture.
There is much work yet to do, but on this Fathers’ Day, 2015, we are closer than ever to justice and actually doing what’s best for our children.
Could anyone want a better Fathers’ Day gift?
