I have been caring for my granddaughter most of her life ever sence she was born. I have had her now for a year straight. I have been doing everything for her I mean everything.

Everyone see it.

My son from four years old on was often left alone while his birth mother trolled the bars. I spent hours with him on the phone calming his fear while he was alone inside a security apartment. My outrage was ignored. A former Nicollet County, MN, Social Services Director named Pat Coyne said there was no harm in a youngster eating his meals at McDonalds. After years of exposing neglect and abuse from the birth mother, my son and I finally had our day in court. Custody changed, the birth...

My son from four years old on was often left alone while his birth mother trolled the bars. I spent hours with him on the phone calming his fear while he was alone inside a security apartment. My outrage was ignored. A former Nicollet County, MN, Social Services Director named Pat Coyne said there was no harm in a youngster eating his meals at McDonalds. After years of exposing neglect and abuse from the birth mother, my son and I finally had our day in court. Custody changed, the birth mother crawled back into the hole she created. He grew into an Eagle Scout, a combat decorated Army Ranger, a loving and caring father with love and nurturing from the family atmosphere his stepmother and I created.

Maybe we should research and ask the children who have lived it what they think and how things should be changed. Adult children who actually lived the 50/50 are best to speak out about reform; they are the only ones who have the whole perspective. No divorce is normal...something went wrong and there is a reason. Most have mental health issues and that is why the divorce and if so, how can one spouse protect the children from harm by the other if they see that parent 50/50? Narcissism...

Most have mental health issues and that is why the divorce and if so, how can one spouse protect the children from harm by the other if they see that parent 50/50? Narcissism is abuse and divorce really brings this out of the Narcissistic person and they mistreat the children. Would d50/50 be good then? The problem is there are too many lies told by people in court during the divorce and lots of acting. The most abusive person comes off as loving and normal and it is nearly impossible to sort their true nature of anger, power, and hurt. Again, research the children who have lived it and are now adults to reform divorce/parenting laws.

Sixty-percent of Mother's get sole custody. The rest of the time, the dad's probably get 10 - 20% custody. Aren't Mom's ever mentally ill? Aren't mom's ever Narcissistic? Do Moms ever lie to the Courts? Being "mentally ill" in the eyes of your spouse shouldn't be reason to lose custody of your kids. It's like allowing someone to be burned at the stake because the neighbors saw them "making poppets."
