Behind every violence or murder there is a protection order

Sun 24th May 2009:

When the man in the following article murdered his wife, I as a vaccinated Family Court bonded client, thought there must be a protection order behind this case.

Gifted girls conceal their talents

I would question this, given the tendency to “put down” males.

Removing Children From Marital Home

Wed 20th May 2009:

Removing Children From Marital Home (Shared Parenting) When you consider this issue, starting from children’s needs, I believe that most married couples who might separate, are in the situation that their mental health and parenting skills aren’t so good that both could make a valid claim for sole custody. Therefore, they would have to either […]

Confronting Our Most Urgent Social Problem

Tue 12th May 2009:

The United States is becoming an increasingly fatherless society. A generation ago, an American child could reasonably expect to grow up with his or her father. Today, an American child can reasonably expect not to. Fatherlessness is now approaching a rough parity with fatherhood as a defining feature of American childhood.

Wed 6th May 2009:

Two 15-year-old schoolboys commit suicide within a week of each other, and police are investigating whether text or internet bullying contributed to their deaths.
