For Unmarried Fathers, Now is Then

For Unmarried Fathers, Now is Then

December 30, 2018 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization Here’s one of those ‘Ask the Lawyer’ type of articles that appear in so many publications (Lebanon Democrat, 12/27/18).  This one’s short, but reveals so, so much.  The lawyer is Jim Hawkins of Tennessee.  He begins his piece with a fact: Striking fact: During 2017, 43.6 percent of all Tennessee babies were born to unmarried mothers.

by Brian Shilhavy Editor, Health Impact News The Gardasil vaccine scandal once again was the top news topic on Health Impact News for 2018, as it has been for the past several years.

The top story, by far, was the tragic story of 14-year-old Christopher Bunch, originally published at The Vaccine Reaction, who died…

December 28, 2018 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization Now we come to the nut of Bud Dale’s claims to the Family Law Advisory Committee of the Kansas Judicial Council.  In my first piece, I dealt with the fact that Dale intentionally misrepresented to the committee NPO’s report on the parenting time guidelines of Ohio family courts.  In my second, I pointed out that he relies on the current system for at least part of…

Bud Dale: Guidelines for Thee, but not for Me

Bud Dale: Guidelines for Thee, but not for Me

December 27, 2018 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization As I mentioned in my last piece, Bud Dale’s letter to the Family Law Advisory Committee of the Kansas Judicial Council is riddled with inaccuracies and at least one outright lie. But it gets worse. Dale opposes any change in the law that would promote shared parenting arrangements for kids post-divorce. His letter would have the committee believe that he does so out of the highest…

Where Is Christmas Hope in the Shadow of CPS Darkness?

These are some of the names of children taken by CPS on Nancy Barton’s Memorial Fence. Photo supplied by Nancy Barton. By Terri LaPoint Health Impact News Christmas is an especially hard time for families who have been separated by Child Protective Services and family courts. How can Christmas possibly be “merry” when that which means the most – the children, or in some cases the elderly parents – are not there?

Attack on Shared Parenting Research in Kansas

Attack on Shared Parenting Research in Kansas

December 24, 2018 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization Someone named Bud Dale has decided to set himself up in Kansas as (apparently) the sole arbiter regarding the science on shared versus sole parenting. Dale advertises himself as a “licensed PhD. psychologist and attorney in Topeka, Kansas.” In all the studies on shared parenting I’ve read and read about, I’ve never seen his name mentioned nor cited as a researcher in the field. The finest…

Guardian: Domestic Violence Committed Only by Men

Guardian: Domestic Violence Committed Only by Men

December 21, 2018 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization Leave it to The Guardian to make the domestic violence situation worse, not better (The Guardian, 12/4/18). The type of virulent misandry on parade in the linked-to piece belongs in the ash heap of history, but The Guardian is nothing if not a throwback to older, less-informed times.
