We at the National Parents Organization try hard every day to bring sanity to family courts and laws. Countless other organizations and individuals do too. It’s a long, hard slog. The healthy fight to keep fathers in children’s lives is a necessary one. Too many forces in this society militate against fathers and the result is widespread social dysfunction. Kids raised by two parents are, on average, far better off than are any other kids, a fact that’s been firmly established and well known now for decades.
And yet there are those who – deliberately it seems – turn a blind eye to the realities fathers face. Such a person is Maurice Fisher who’s a “mental health professional” working fairly frequently in custody cases (Roanoke Times, 2/21/19). With an attitude like his, he should find a different job.
