On November 8, 2013, I read an article by Julia Marsh and Reuven Fenton titled “Dad ‘unfit parent for refusing son McDonald’s'” that was published in the New York Post on November 7, 2013. After reading the article, I shared it online with the following comment: “Isn’t it nice to know that in divorce and post divorce situations, if a child doesn’t get what they want, the parent can be found to be unfit? Litigated divorce the gift that keeps on giving!”

Canada Goose online Before discussing my thoughts on this situation, I must disclose that I only know what the media has reported about this case. It is a mistake to take things out of context. Things are canada goose outlet england not always as they appear, especially if important facts are missing from the news reports. Canada Goose online

Canada Goose sale Nevertheless, as Robert A. so canada goose outlet seattle aptly pointed out, “The issue here is not that the father refused to give the child McDonald’s as the headline trumpets. The issue here is that the father refused to give the child dinner. That may or may not be an issue, depending on context. However, as Joan T.

Since we don’t know all of the facts, I think it is a serious mistake to agree or disagree with the ultimate decision in this case. However, it is very appropriate to discuss how litigation is a “game changer” with regard to parenting children from that point forward.

canada goose black friday sale Jill Rhodes Harvey commented as follows: “Unbelievable, but demonstrates how guilt about getting divorced, emphasizes how parents OVER compensate by giving in to children to make up for not being together.

Canada Goose Outlet Rick Carter commented as follows: “As a divorce litigator, I must admit that the litigation system is fundamentally unsuited for divorce/family disputes! Litigation contemplates a final decision between 2 (sometimes more) litigants. Divorce canada goose jacket outlet uk (and paternity) cases involve parties 2 parents children with competing interests who a) are antagonistic to one another and b) MUST stay in relationships with each other. The litigation model is destructive, not constructive, regardless of how many ‘experts’ they throw in the pot. carcasa silicona iphone 5 I 100% endorse exploring new methods of addressing families that are breaking up or have broken up.

As Terry Gaspard noted, “Sadly many children canada goose outlet in montreal are indulged and used as pawns in a bad divorce.
