A child's right to have stable relationships with BOTH parents must be central to custody decisions. Children affected by divorce and/or separation fare worse, on average, on nearly every measure of health and emotional well-being including a greater risk of academic problems, alcohol and drug use, poor social skills, depression and suicide, delinquency and incarceration, and poorer physical health and early mortality. The reason for all this has much to do with the fact that one of the two most important people in a child’s life is often relegated to the role of an infrequent visitor. #StandUpForZoraya #EndParentalAlienation #ILoveAndNeedMyDaughter
The father's rights movement isn't an anti-mom or anti-woman movement; it's an anti-unfairness movement. Our aim is to champion the cause of equal parenting, family law reform and equal contact for divorced/separated parents with their children. The fathers' rights movement is a movement whose members are primarily interested in issues related to family law, including child custody and child support that affect fathers and their children. Many of its members are fathers who desire to share the parenting of their children equally with their children's mother—either after divorce or as unwed fathers, and the children of the terminated marriage.
The movement includes women as well as men, often the second wives of divorced fathers or other family members of men who have had some engagement with family law. Most of the members of the fathers' rights movement had little prior interest in the law or politics. However, as they felt that their goal of equal shared parenting was being frustrated by the family courts, many took an interest in family law, including child custody and child support. Though it has been described as a social movement, members of the movement believe their actions are better described as part of a civil rights movement. Objections to the characterizations of the movement as a social movement are related to the belief that discrimination against fathers moves beyond the social sciences and originates in government intervention into family life.
The movement has received international press coverage as a result of high profile activism of their members, has become increasingly vocal, visible and organised, and has played a powerful role in family law debates. The child is not the mere creature of the State; those who nurture him and direct his destiny have the right, coupled with the high duty, to recognize and prepare him for additional obligations." - Pierce v. Society of Sisters, 268 U.S. 510 (1925) "It is cardinal with us that the custody, care and nurture of the child reside first in the parents, whose primary function and freedom include preparation for obligations the state can neither supply nor hinder.... It is in recognition of this that these decisions have respected the private realm of family life which the state cannot enter." - Prince v. Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 321 U.S. 158 (1944) "The Due Process Clause does not permit a State to infringe on the fundamental right of parents to make childrearing decisions simply because a state judge believes a 'better' decision could be made." - Troxel v. Granville, 530 U.S. 57 (2000)
Children's rights are the human rights of children with particular attention to the rights of special protection and care afforded to the young, including their right to association with both biological parents. Raise your right hand and read aloud the following: DADS ~ I promise that I will not in any way put my children in the middle of any dispute I may have with their mother, and that I will put my children's best interest above everything else. I will not make disparaging comments to them about their mother, use my children as pawns or leverage, or try to turn my children against their mother, no matter how angry I may be. I will focus on enjoying and making the most out of the time I have with my children, and will encourage my children to have a good relationship with their mother. I will keep in mind that my children are innocent bystanders in this process, and it is up to both of us to protect them. I will remember that my overall goal is to raise happy, well adjusted children who have a healthy relationship with both parents.

“We stand for the human rights of mothers, fathers and children.” ~ Our aim is to champion the cause of equal parenting, family law reform and equal contact for divorced parents with children. This is a movement whose members are primarily interested in issues related to family law, including child custody and child support that affect fathers and their children. Members are mostly fathers who desire to share the parenting of their children equally with their children's mother—either after divorce or as unwed fathers, and the children of the terminated marriage. This movement includes women as well as men, often the second wives of divorced fathers or other family members of men who have had some engagement with family law. What is your stance on equal constitutional parental rights for all parents and any needed reforms to the family law system to ensure them? Do you support constitutional parental rights for all? This issue is literally destroying society from within by destroying the family bonds & structure that a civilized nation needs to be strong and survive.

- Why do PAS parents act like they do?
"So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none. When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home." (Tecumseh).
Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
