Mommy Mommy

The first time my infant son uttered “mommy” my heart sank a little. My reaction was unexpected. He wasn’t calling for me; he was scampering hands and knees into the arms of my partner, Kira.

New here today

Hi all!

I'm an avid blogger. I blog whatever is in my head at that moment. I love to "overthink" things and sometimes people get tired of listening so it's great for me to get my words written down to see what I really think :)

I love to meet new friends, chat, spend time with my kiddos and just enjoy life

Hope to make some new friends soon!

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.

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
