Father's Day

Posted by menbc.ca on June 8, 2011 at 3:54 AM

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.

Laws need to be changed in this country.Also Father's issues need more Media time and
coverage.So far,Canadian Society as whole is very passive and non confrontational,but
if we wish to see changes....there definitely needs to be more Media Presence.More
Public Presence and educating the Public about these things.

I battled to allow the kids to visit with me on Father's Day, as they wished to. The hostility of ex-spouses sometimes surprises even those accustomed to it.
