    A Wolf in Fathers Clothing

    Unfortunately, the book only serves as a primer for obsessive dads who hate the ex-spouse 'childs mother' to harass and alienate the child against their mother as a means of lowering support payments. The reference for attorney and custody mediators in San Diego is a farce -stay away from the people on that list! One attorney on it can't even calculate support payments correctly! 90% or more of all divorces are about infidelity, and the vast percentage of that is done by men according to every study one reads. Those adulterous fathers, now focused on their new relationships, are more than happy to accept a few weekends a month to 'punch the fatherly clock' while they pursue the new relationship. Only when they realize that successful relationships are about fidelity and intimacy, and that adultery is not a good base to build those qualities, then they begin to look back to find support from someone who will accept them despite their moral failings - namely, the kids. And money always plays into the equation too. All of a sudden, after the mother has done all the hard work of raising and tending to the kids needs, the father decides to ride to rescue them from mom. In reality, the father is looking for acceptance from his, and knows the kids think that dad wasn't really there when they needed them, and so undermining mom becomes the means to balance the equation. This book, although it makes a half hearted attempt to advocate healthy co-parenting, is more about techniques for undermining moms influence - notice the extended focus on how mothers may be influencing the kids against the father. To that extent, a dangerous guidebook for the guilty, appearance obsessed father. Alienation of children by fathers is very real and constitutes child abuse - just ask Kim Basinger - and this book only fuels that fire.
