In America Rates At Which Batterers Get Custody (75%)

Rates At Which Batterers Receive Custody

by Joan Meier, Esq.



One statement in Breaking the Silence: Children's Voices that has provoked controversy was my statement that "the studies are showing" that up to 2/3 of accused or adjudicated batterers receive joint or sole custody in court. While no empirical study can definitively determine a universal statistical rate, the key point is that the research consistently shows that accused and adjudicated batterers receive joint or sole… Continue

RE: The American PBS Documentary "Breaking The Silence The Childrens Stories"

What Breaking the Silence Means

By Dominique Lasseur



Documentary film producer Dominique Lasseur set out to explore the failures of the family court system in "Breaking the Silence: Children's Stories." But when public television broadcast the program in the fall of 2005, the father's rightsmovement was quick to react with scathing criticism and a deluge of viewer complaints. What compelled you to take on this issue? We didn't set out to produce a piece about custody issues. We… Continue

Custodians of Abuse

by Kristen Lombardi







IF YOU'RE A PARENT, it's your worst nightmare: finding out that your child is being molested — by your spouse. If you seek a divorce as a result, or are already going through one when you make the discovery, you hope that family court will do the right thing: grant you sole legal and physical custody of your child. In fact, you can't even imagine that there could be any other outcome in the custody judgment. But for many… Continue

People are often amazed at their own psychological conditions and reactions. Those with depression are stunned when they remember they've thought of killing themselves. Patients recovering from severe psychiatric disturbances are often shocked as they remember their symptoms and behavior during the episode.

Top 10 for Your Baby must have's!

Last year, five of my friends, including myself, were all pregnant. It was the first baby for all of them, but I was on my second. The days of their disinterest as I rambled on about the greatest children’s products were now ignited by their own fervour and zest for the latest baby merchandise. I had to smirk as they discussed which video monitor was essential or how the trendy fifteen hundred dollar stroller was about to go on sale. All too often I was read reviews, taken to stores, shown a… Continue

Turn On The Romance

Okay, so I'm a corny, sappy, poo when it comes to romantic movies.





There's nothing like putting on a romantic flick to make me get in the mood. Which is a good, and a bad thing when it comes to my husband - because he LOVES it when I'm in the mood, but hates corny, sappy movies.





I'm almost certain that his eyes almost bleed at the sight of a romance set in the 1900's especially. I can hear him moaning, and groaning on… Continue

Sorry

Hi guys, I am so sorry that I've been absent for such a long time. My mother was very sick and I stayed in her house to care for her. Now she's getting better and better and I am back home and prepare the house for halloween (I love to start early... for thanksgiving... for christmas... birthdays... I guess I am well-organized). By the way - do have a good recipe for pumpkin-ginger muffins??? I love them, but I never tried to make them on my own.
