H urray, there's good news from fathers! In a Cadbury-Nielsen survey, nearly 94 per cent of the 1,819 respondents across six major cities said they were convinced it was important for fathers to spend more time with kids. They ‘craved' time off work to be with their kids. Kid-time, dads feel, must be increased from the paltry two hours to a respectable three-plus on weekdays.

This is a shift from earlier pronouncements such as ‘Can't you see I'm busy reading the papers? Take the brat away. Call me when he needs guidance in high school'. Good. The ‘desire' to spend more time with kids has the backing of behavioural science. Research shows kids who spend a lot of time with their father are better learners and have higher self-esteem than others who get just ‘quality time'. Interviews with six-year olds in the U.S. make it clear that youngsters with a supportive father have a greater sense of social acceptance. A British study says we need to find ways to encourage the positive roles of fathers. Kids definitely benefit from having a loving and supportive man around.

Betrayal of the family: Despite all those Tory promises, fathers and grandparents will still be denied the right to see children after a divorce PDF Print E-mail

Fathers and grandparents will not be given any legal right to see children after a break-up, under the biggest changes to family law in a generation.

In what was immediately denounced as a ‘betrayal’ of the family, a major report today rules against giving men shared or equal time with their children when a relationship ends.

It suggests fathers will even be denied the legal right to maintain a ‘meaningful relationship’ with their families, as this ‘would do more harm than good’.

The review also kicks into touch Coalition pledges to make it easier to maintain contact with grandchildren when parents separate, a problem that usually affects those on the father’s side.

With the release of the Family Justice Review final report, there came a number of articles concerning the custody of children whose parents have divorced or separated. But where did the above Daily Mail statistic come from?

The Family Justice Review final report “flatly rejected claims by fathers' rights groups that the current system is biased – despite figures showing that 93 per cent of custody battles are won by the mother”.

Daily Mail, 4 November 2011

The recommendations of the Family Justice Review final report were yesterday denounced by the Daily Mail as a “betrayal of the family”.

The boy, whose parents are separated, started sobbing when the judge told the kid that he should spend time with his father. If he did not follow the order — or stop crying — “we will send you to the police station.” The sobbing continued for more than an hour outside the court.

A mother took on a High Court judge on Wednesday for trying to scare her nine-year-old son into spending his weekends and holidays with his father and threatening him with jail if he didn’t.

Justice N K Patil and Justice C R Kumaraswamy were hearing a case between Raja Lakshmi and Subraya Manja over the custody of their son and were trying to convince the woman to send her son to meet his father on weekends and school holidays. The boy, however, started crying when he heard this.

Psychiatric experts assess parental alienation PDF Print E-mail

NEW YORK (AP) - The American Psychiatric Association has a hot potato on its hands as it updates its catalog of mental disorders _ whether to include parental alienation, a disputed term conveying how a child’s relationship with one estranged parent can be poisoned by the other.

There’s broad agreement that this sometimes occurs, usually triggered by a divorce and child-custody dispute. But there’s bitter debate over whether the phenomenon should be formally classified as a mental health syndrome _ a question now before the psychiatric association as it prepares the first complete revision since 1994 of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

“We’re gotten an enormous amount of mail _ more than any other issue,” said Dr. Darrel Regier, vice chair of the task force drafting the manual. “The passions on both sides of this are exceptional.”

Fathers lose bid for equal custody rights after review of family law PDF Print E-mail

Fathers’ hopes of securing equal rights over their children will be dashed tomorrow when a review of family law is published.

Plans to give parents equal rights to share custody of their children in the event of a split have been rejected by the Family Justice Review, led by former civil servant and businessman David Norgrove.

In a further blow to fathers’ rights campaigners, the Norgrove Report will also reject calls to enshrine in law the principle that children should have a ‘meaningful relationship’ with both their mother and father.

Absent fathers are fuelling drug addiction, anti-social behaviour and crime among young people, says charity report PDF Print E-mail

Absentee fathers are driving high levels of addition, anti-social behaviour and crime, a new report has revealed.

Children growing up in fatherless families are turning to self-harm as well as criminal activity, fuelled by their sense of abandonment and lack of self-esteem.

Many of the youngsters interviewed for the Dad and Me report, which was commissioned by charity Addaction, said they had sought affirmation and affection from gang membership and turned to drugs to numb the pain.

The fatherless young people were found to be almost 70 per cent more likely to take drugs and 76 per cent more likely to turn to crime.

The report says: ‘ Young people are struggling to find a sense of purpose within their families, schools, and community , and believe that peers provide them with what they need.

‘The continuing desire to join a gang, engage in antisocial behaviour and risky lifestyles combined with the need to carry a weapon as a form of protection has become the norm for many.’

PTI | Nagpur | Oct 25, 2011

'Save Indian Family Foundation' (SIFF), an NGO, has claimed that over five lakh people had been harassed by the alleged misuse of various women protection laws including the Anti-dowry Law, Domestic Violence Law and Maintenance Act, even as 22 per cent of total arrested in these cases are women.

Based on the figures provided by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), the NGO that is fighting for the rights of husbands against the alleged misuse of these laws, has claimed that while these laws are increasingly misused by women, many women themselves are falling prey to it, Rajesh Vakharia, a founder member and president of Nagpur Chapter of the Foundation told PTI.

Divorce: The battle for child custody PDF Print E-mail

Children have rights. Children have wishes. Children have dreams. One area where the interests of children are directly affected is when parents separate. A divorce inevitably leads to a legal battle for child custody. Following ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child in most countries, terms such as "residence" and "contact" have superseded the concepts of "custody" and "access". Instead of a parent having "custody" of or "access" to a child, a child is now said to "reside" or have "contact" with a parent. Whilst the number of divorces was 110 in 1975, the figure reached 1,837 in 2010. The annual figure for civil marriages is about 10,000 lately.
