June 19th is Father's Day. Many fathers will enjoy the day with their children. It is a time to observe and celebrate the contributions of fathers. Many other fathers will not do so because the day is not part of their access order, or they are denied access.
What do children who do not see their father on Father's Day think of him? What are they told about why he does not see them on such a special day? What do they actually do on that day? What do they tell their friends who do see their fathers about why they did not see their father?
We clearly need to do more for these children. They do not deserve this abuse.
