    Good fathers need more time with children

    I agree with the one star rating above, that the perhaps feminists in this world support the idea that every other weekend with Dad is enough. Divorce is a devastating thing as a child's roots are ripped from the ground. The idea of quality time being enough isn't the answer. It is quantity of time, and that should be allowed as much as possible with both parents. 2 weeks passing before you see your child is outrageous. I have seen the mother ask others to watch the children, when the father was available. If you want the child to still have a sense of security and home, then you must allow access to both parents whenever. Often times, too, the mother and her family won't allow access to the father on her time. This is so wrong. The children should be allowed this, any time of day or night, and should never be denied that, just like they would have it if they were in a happy home, with both parents. A critical element is that when the mother cannot be with them, the father must be given first opportunity, before others.

    written by feminst social worker

    The negative stereotypical examples of uninvolved and bad fathers permeate this book and show the gender bigotry that exists in society today. While a maximum visitation schedule of every other weekend (35-40%)is recommended for only the best fathers, Neuman just doesn't understand what is really in the child's best interests - alot of quality time with both parents. This book is a typical rehash of the feminist agenda, and seems to reflect the current social worker/psychologist/custody evaluator/judge view that shared parenting time and fathers are a bad idea.
