  • Extraordinarily sexist - or should we say mumist - article! Poor dears - the kids are safely off with the other person that loves them most and that's agony? Time to get real - it's 2016 - Dads adore their kids too and kids have a right to two parents. Maybe we need some articles on the agony of dads who are not allowed to their children at all because their ex "simply can't bear it". Too many kids have their lives blighted by a parent dumping their "agony" on their children. Come on people - let's hear it for responsible, collaborative and supportive shared parenting (whether 50/50 or not). It's the best way to make children happy and balanced! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-3573927/Agony-50-50-mum-Women-held-upper-hand-custody-battles-fathers-winning-EQUAL-access-mothers-struggling-cope.html

    Nicola Hewitt, 42, an office manager from Kenley, Surrey, faces the trauma of being without her children Devon, 10, and Sonny, eight, every weekend. Many women face this problem too.

  • New research White Paper from Dr Richard A Warshak Dr Warshak highlights some of the double standards which brazenly and stubbornly seem to persist in our society despite everyone's apparent agreement that children deserve, require and need meaningful relationships with both their parents - especially after separation or divorce. https://fnf.org.uk/news-events-2/press-releases/103-press-releases-2016-archive/389-warshak-research-review
