How about a letter writing campaign of a different type?
As most of you know, I’m as hard of father responsibility as I am promoting fathers rights.
I received a call this morning from a non-custodial mother. She is having problems with children’s father alienating the children from her. They live just four blocks apart on the same street, but he does not allow the children to visit her except on the court ordered days. He is also not providing her with the grade cards. Now, she called me for advise, and I did just that, as I would with a man. I said: “go hire a qualified and attorney. If you can’t afford it – apply for $1000 overnight loan, and still hire an attorney!” We have enough problems with mother doing this type of stuff. I think we should be holding men up to a higher standard. If for no other reason than to make the point that women’s groups don’t do the same thing.
I plan to write this father about his behavior and to ask that he promote the children having as frequent contact with the mother as is possible. Granted, she may have been doing something like this when she had custody, and I did not ask her if she did, but revenge is not right either.
Now, I don’t know if we should each send him a letter, or for me to send him any comments that persons would like to pass along. But, I think we should express our opinions to him. I would like to hear from you about my idea and if everyone wants it, I will post his address on here. I would be interest in seeing each of you would say to him. It would make an interesting item to get to reporters.
