  • Who needs Fathers? For the sake of the children

The BBC documentary 'Who needs Fathers? For the sake of the children' is a watered down affair about two families going through Separation and Divorce.

The first couple are barely co-operating with each other in contrast with the second couple who on the face of it are, although it's not smooth sailing if you read between the lines.

The father in the first couple has a friend who is a retired magistrate of the Family Court and may prove to be interesting viewing for some. If we all had a friend as a judge or Magistrate in the system, how easy would life have been.

On the whole, it's a rather lame version failing to highlight or address key issues that most families are confronted with during a separation and dealing with the system. However, you just may get a few laughs here and there and relate to some aspects of the drama making you realise you are not alone or your situation is an isolated case.

I suspect this is just another version of mediocre propaganda orchestrated from the 'powers to be' to show that things really aren't that bad. But hey, they aren't fooling the many of us who know differently and have been slaughtered by draconian anti-family and anti-father laws and attitudes over the past thirty plus years.

It's not to say however, that by watching these videos you can't learn a thing or two, bringing it into practice in your own life, and perhaps gain some mild relief.

    It turns out that in a couple, fathers are the most important parent _for_the_child_, particularly daughters.

    From Transactional Analysis knowledge, a child makes their life-plan decisions based on the parent of the opposite gender, their detail-level decisions based on the parent of the same gender.

    In my case, my ex-wife has 4 different Personality Disorders, which results in her playing Parental Alienation Syndrome & camouflaging it for all she's worth with 100%-false accusations of violence.

    My children (10yob, 9yog) have not enjoyed any contact of any type at all in over a year. How is this in their best interests?

    CSA have just quadrupled my assessment, when I did not have sufficient money to pay the old assessment.

    This included them accepting manifestly untrue claims for her income & her expenses without question & evidently (prejudice city!) assuming that I had undeclared income & assets without a shred of evidence in support.

    If my car endures a mechanical failure, or my medical expenses rise (from a deliberately caused near-fatal traffic accident in 2006), I'm completely stuffed -- without even counting CSA injustice.

    The swampy footprints of the Materialists/Humanists/etc are evident throughout our travesty of Family Law.

    The beginning of another day and I think we have a really serious problem concerning our children and their future generations.

    In the UK we have numerous women opting out of families to be financially provided for and protected by the state.

    While this maybe fair for single mums who have no choice due to their husbands being abusive, on drugs, gamblers, suffering alcoholism, not being good husbands or fathers etc, it's clearly providing an incentive to others mothers to leave their husbands and break up the family. Sometimes it's for the pettiest reasons.

    We have a real problem to solve lads, so what's the solution?

    Who needs fathers/ as if we are are important just for the sake of the children. It's a very derogatory way of looking st us fathers alright.
    Those femmo bitches can all go and get fucked as far as im concerned!! I can't even get work after I gave up my life raising my children after that whore bitch left us over ten years ago and caused us a whole heap of grief. Some people have no fucking idea what really goes on. And as for those pissy pantomine BBC videos, thats the best staged bullshit ive seen for years. Well there you have it...

    A friend of mine who has plenty of courage and fortitude and been standing out front of the Family Court protesting for the past 20yrs or so, saw his daughter for the first time only a couple of months ago. She rung him up out of the blue and went and saw him and his mother after 26yrs. She is 32. Simply amazing

    Steve from Geelong, I am delighted for you. I have been estranged from my daughter from 15 to now 30. My heart is sad but hopeful every day. One day......

    There is nothing my daughter could do that is so bad that I would not love her.

    Who has an ex judge as friend? lucky bastard LOL
    The father seemed happy when he got his order from the court tho. Wonder how much it cost him and how much rigmarole he went to. Did he do it himself or pay a lawyer? They never show u those things

    This may not be relevant to the topic but I saw my daughter the other day after 15yrs of having her being kept away from me by lawyers and the system. It was a dreadful time but I always believed in my heart we would see other again and it has come true. So never give up guys, have faith and hope and do the right thing by yuour kids. She is now 26 and I feel so happy yet feel so sad. We have both missed out on a big chunk of our lives and I could dwell on that forever, however I choose not to and want to form a new realtionship with my daughter. It's never too late.. keep up the F4J presence. It sends the message to the system, our exes and our children that we do care and will never give up. Cheers

    The most recent programme showed the aftermath when things are too late to put right and the kids are on the road to ruin, and I have to wonder how many offending mothers would bother to watch this I also included this film in my latest blog the link to which I will put on the forum here.

    Those videos were too damn sterile for me... that's about as intellectual as I can get atm
    By:amfortas from Tasmoania, Orstralia on April 10, 2010 @ 3:27 pm
    This is an important series that is bound to have an effect on the viewing public and shape attitudes. For those who cannot view it themselves a more comprehensive and critical review with a strong dose of intellectual honesty is needed.

    John Kimble has provided such a comprehensive overview on 'The Rights Of Man' website and I recomment people see what he has to say.

    yes very interesting to see propaganda in UK, very similar to canadian media. Like that sms from the xwife. it gave me a chuckle

    Just finished watching the second video and i must say having that magistrate must have surely helped that father. He didn't look like he was short of a quid either which can help.
