Research

Fathers and Families has produced a review of research in support of the campaign against the PBS show "Breaking the Silence' and provided it to PBS. The review demonstrated that the central claims of the show were false. Fathers and Families has compiled published research in its position papers supporting its legislative bills on moveaways, paternity fraud, and shared parenting. Fathers and Families has sponsored the in-person presentation of research by Sanford Braver (child support), Richard Gelles (domestic violence), Amy Baker (parental alienation), Rebekah Coley (youthful delinquency) and others before decision-makers in Massachusetts. Fathers and Families is currently compiling research reports documenting that family court reform will help children who suffer from the eight leading problems of children:
  • child abuse
  • educational underachievement
  • depression or alienation
  • violence or gang activity
  • poor health
  • teen pregnancy
  • substance abuse
  • dysfunctional future family relationships.
These reports will be distributed and promoted when ready. Fathers and Families has also researched and investigated numerous high-profile custody cases which were publicized by misguided women's advocates who promote the idea that family courts favor male abusers over protective mothers. Upon investigation, Fathers and Families found that none of these cases were being represented accurately in the media, and that the mothers involved lost custody only after committing numerous and well-documented wrongs. A few of these cases are:
  • The Genia Shockome case featured in Newsweek magazine.
  • The Holly Collins case featured by Fox News and Inside Edition.
  • The Sadia Loeliger case highlighted by PBS.
  • The Bridget Marks case highlighted by Larry King Live, PrimeTime Live, The O'Reilly Factor, Dr. Phil, and others.

Volunteer Testimonial

"For the last 10 years with help of organizations like “National Parents Organization,” parents like me, have worked against continuous opposition to reform the Hawaii Family Court away from the adversarial model toward a collaborative one. We need family courts that respect the importance of frequent, continuing and meaningful parenting time with both parents. Because effective parenting needs to have a sufficient quantity to achieve quality."

By Chris Lethem, Chair, Hawaii Executive Committee
