Frontline… The War on Men

There is a war on men but the greatest perpetrators are the men themselves. As Walt Kelly once said, “We have met the enemy and he is us.” Our single greatest enemy is our own passivity - mine included.

To see your smiles and how you've grown Or how much of you is me. To hold you close, to hear you laugh, To put you to bed at night. To tell you things a ...

Delinquent Dads?

The best decisions about the care, welfare and support of children are those made by their parents. However, the Child Support Agency has decided that it should take over this role. As a result, I know plenty of non-custodial fathers (and one mother) who not only have no intention of ever paying child support, but also do everything they possibly can to avoid it.

Teachers versus Fathers

The observation that separated couples rarely get along with each other would come as no revelation to anyone. It is generally relationship problems that lead to the separation in the first place. Yet these relationship difficulties are often used by the Family Court as the basis for refusing shared parenting and for restricting a father’s contact with his children. I know of one case where a judge, who found no fault ...

A Tale of Three Cities

A few years ago I was a happily married man -- a beautiful wife, three sons, a home  that  was well on the way to being paid off, a job, and settled in the community.  We had just had our 10-year anniversary -- a night on the town for the family.  A few bumps along the way, including some really tough surprises with our sons' births, but everything was fine -- ...
