Los Angeles, CA--Fathers are frequently marginalized and deprived of custody of their children when their wives/ex-wives/ex-girlfriends abuse their children.  My recent His Side with Glenn Sacks radio commentary for KLAA AM 830 in Los Angeles discusses an important court ruling in a terrible Nebraska case. In the case, a mother abused her daughter and child protective services took the girl.  There were no accusations of abuse against the father.  Nevertheless, they deceived and manipulated the father into relinquishing custody of his daughter.  To listen to the commentary, click here or on the audio button below. To learn more, see my blog post An Important Win for Fathers, Children in Nebraska Supreme Court.

Los Angeles, CA--My recent His Side with Glenn Sacks radio commentary for KLAA AM 830 in Los Angeles discusses the issue of the rights of lesbian "social mothers'–women who agreed to employ a sperm donor so that they could have children with their lesbian partners, who are the biological mothers. When two lesbians agree to have a child together, and when the child has bonded with both his or her biological mother and his or her social mother, I believe that the relationship between the child and the social mother should be protected. I also believe that the biological mother has a responsibility to her children and to her former partner to hold up her end of the deal with the partner with whom she created the child, and that courts should hold her to her commitment.

Charleston, West Virginia--My recent His Side with Glenn Sacks radio commentary for KLAA AM 830 in Los Angeles discusses a recent West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals on the issue of jailing child support debtors.  As we've discussed on many occasions, while it is certainly true that there are fathers who do not come through for their children, many child-support obligors are punished and even jailed simply because they are too poor to pay the child support that the family law system demands of them.  To listen to the commentary, click here or on the audio button below. To learn more, see my blog post Court Ruling: In Child Support Cases, Burden of Proof Is Still on Prosecution.

I discussed Parenting magazine's new 'Mad at Dads' study on the Kathryn Zox Show on WMET AM 1160 in Washington DC yesterday. Kathryn and her co-host Lorin Beller Blake both feel that stay-at-home mothers are put upon and fathers are fortunate to be able to work and "be out there in the real world" instead of staying at home. To listen to the audio of the show, click here. I come on at 16 minutes in. I thought the most interesting part of the show was the way Zox and Blake reacted with some disbelief at my feelings about my three years as a stay-at-home dad after my daughter was born (begins at 22 minutes in.) At some level Zox and Blake seem convinced that stay-at-home moms get a raw deal and work much harder than breadwinner dads. Having been a stay-at-home dad with two kids during the years when they need the most intensive of care, I can tell you that this is nonsense.

I'm quoted on dads as primary caregivers in nationally-syndicated advice columnist Amy Alkon's new column Harried, with Children. Alkon, whose columns appear in 100 newspapers, begins with a letter from "Stay-Late-At-Work Dad," who writes:
Women complain about how hard it is being a stay-at-home mom. After getting divorced, I discovered I could clean the entire house in a few hours...Men work long hours to support their families, only to be told they aren't doing enough around the house. I think being a mom is important and value stay-at-home moms, but let's talk turkey about who really has the hard job, okay?
Alkon responds:

I discussed the "He-cession" and Reihan Salam's controversial article The Death of Macho (Foreign Policy, 7/2/09) on KGO AM 810 in San Francisco Thursday. An interview with Salam which was used as a set-up for my interview talked a lot about "Macho Men" (even playing the Village People's "Macho Man" in the background.) Salam spoke of the male blue-collar workers displaced by the recession as if they're privileged males who finally (and deservedly) have been knocked down a peg or two by the economic crisis. In his article, Salam wrote:
[In recent years male-dominated governments] acted to artificially prop up macho. One such example is the housing bubble...in the United States, the booming construction sector generated relatively high-paying jobs for the relatively less-skilled men who made up 97.5 percent of its workforce--$814 a week on average. By contrast, female-dominated jobs in healthcare support pay $510 a week, while retail jobs pay about $690 weekly. The housing bubble created nearly 3 million more jobs in residential construction than would have existed otherwise... These handsome construction wages allowed men to maintain an economic edge over women...subsidizing macho had all kinds of benefits, and to puncture the housing bubble would have been political suicide.

huff-po-logoFathers and Families Executive Director Glenn Sacks is quoted in the recent Huffington Post piece If You Were More Religious, Would You Have Stayed Married? (12/17/10). Author Jill Brooke writes:
Many of my colleagues in the divorce business lament how too many throw in the towel too early. The pursuit of personal happiness at all costs has trumped the value of loyalty and commitment. "Religion is one of the few institutions in society which requires and emphasizes introspection," says Glenn Sacks, the National Executive Director of Fathers and Families. "Too many divorces are initiated haphazardly and unnecessarily. Some of these marriages--not all, but some--could be saved and revived if the parties were more honest with themselves about their own failings, fairer and more realistic in their expectations for their partners, and more deeply concerned about the negative effect divorce often has upon children. These values--honesty, humility, forgiveness, and concern for others--are common religious values."
Fathers and Families takes no position on religion in general nor on any religion in particular. However, we do believe that introspection, whether religious or nonreligious, is important for a successful marriage and family life.
