Petition Closed

Because kids need their dads too. Kids who grow up with dad are less violent, stay in school more, do not have sex early, use less drugs and alcohol and grow up to be better parents.

It does take a Village to raise kids and that village should always include a mom and a dad.

I just signed the following petition addressed to: Federal and State Laws to bring back dads into kids lives..

----------------
Reform Federal & State Laws to bring back dads. Some of the Federal Laws that need to be reformed are the Violence Against Women's Act. What is the problem with the act is that IT IS NOT gender neutral and that it has caused an explosion of FALSE Abuse Prevention/Restraining orders that have bypassed Due Process and have often been used to gain custody advantage, rather than protect those in society who might need our protections. The Bradley Amendment which has thrown more non violent broke fathers into jails and prevented them from being a dad to their kids. Title IVd of the Social Security Act which has financial incentives to keep dads out of the home. Finally on a state level, to pass Joint Physical Custody/Shared Parenting laws for fit parents to keep both parents involved with their kids lives.

Today by the age of 18, studies show that 56% of children are not living with one of the biological parents, mostly their dad. In inner city Boston, 85% of teen moms have no teen dad at home. Over 21 million kids now live without a dad in the home. This has huge social costs for us all, especially the kids.

Because kids need their dads too. Kids who grow up with dad are less violent, stay in school more, do not have sex early, use less drugs and alcohol and grow up to be better parents.

It does take a Village to raise kids and that village still needs to include both a mother and a father, despite their parents separation and divorce.
