Massachusetts – Land Of Confusion

Massachusetts – Land Of Confusion

Charles Baker and Massachusetts DSS,DCF,  Agency,  destroying good people for profit,  someone writes: The whole facade is based on the deception of “implied consent,” when in fact, there is no contract, authority or law in the actions of the “court.” In fact, the Human is the only one who can possess or exercise Inherent Rights, can sign a contract, can own allodial property, can bear children or authentically exist. The fictitious “state” is not a human, does not own our…

Stand Up – Fathers, Dads, Mothers, Moms, Stand Up, Together for our Sons and Daughters everywhere

ON THIS FATHERS DAY: I STAND,  I WRITE AND SOME OF YOU THINK I’M WRONG,  RIGHT? I used to have a piece of paper of my wall next to the QUESTION AUTHORITY sign that read:  if you don’t Stand for something  you will Fall for everything.   Standing  in principal for right reason, good cause, is not being selfish and its not even a question of selflessness or selfishness.   The idea of Principal in and of it self take…

Nebraska Courts Approve Shared Parenting Even amid High Conflict

Nebraska Courts Approve Shared Parenting Even amid High Conflict

April 21, 2019 by Rober Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization Two Nebraska courts have gotten it right on shared parenting.  More importantly, the case may be a harbinger of things to come.  The case of Leners v. Leners was probably not easy to decide, particularly for the trial court, but it reached the correct decision which the state Supreme Court upheld. Sharon and Stacy Leners were married in 1997 and divorced in 2016.  They had two…

April 19, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization As if children’s welfare agencies don’t have enough problems, now comes this (Chronicle of Social Change, 4/9/19).  It’s a piece by Tom Morton, a veteran of some 39 years’ experience in social work.  Although tactful, Morton is none too pleased with the training social workers receive.  Specifically, despite making up a large percentage of caseworkers for CPS agencies, graduates of schools of social work tend strongly to receive…

April 18, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization Well!  Being compared to Donald Trump – that is an insult (Washington Times, 4/16/19)!

Fathers’ Provisioning Leads to Nurturing

Fathers’ Provisioning Leads to Nurturing

April 17, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization If I’ve said once, I’ve said it a hundred times: fathers’ providing financially for their families is a form of childcare.  How is it not?  Earning the money for food, clothing, a roof over the child’s head, etc. provide obvious and necessary benefits for the child.  Often enough, they also give Mom the opportunity to provide the direct hands-on care the child needs and Mom likely…

Australian Law Reform Committee Report, Part Three

April 15, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization This brings us to the nut of the matter in the Final Report of the Australian Law Reform Committee, i.e. its scrapping of the requirement that judges “consider” equal parenting time when parents divorce.  If the number of citations to pro-shared parenting documents and commentators is any indication, the committee entirely ignored any input that favors shared parenting.  Put simply, there are no citations to literature and no…

Australian Law Reform Commission Finds Shared Parenting Inconvenient – for Judges!

Australian Law Reform Commission Finds Shared Parenting Inconvenient – for Judges!

April 13, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization The Final Report of the Australian Law Reform Commission reads like it was written by opponents of shared parenting.  Indeed, it may have been.  Here in the U.S. and throughout the English-speaking world, we see the same straw-man arguments against shared parenting again and again.  Like all straw men, they carry no weight.  The ALRC’s report, as regards parenting time and children’s best interests, is more of the…
