On the contrary to what society leads us to believe, there are many fit DADS who fight the Ex, BM or corrupt family court system, just to continue to be a part of their child's life. A fit DAD should not have to be ripped from their child's life and a child should not be ripped from their DADS life.

Society, mother's and most family courts says children should be with their mother's no matter what. Father's have no say in this matter; even if it is unjust. 

I've talked with 100's of fit DADS fighting, what they think is a losing battle. In most cases, it is! DADS need help in this fight to reform this system. We need to all advocate for 50/50 shared parenting. If we don't, the child continues to lose!

We also want others to know how fathers influence their child(ren) relationships. We want to have an influence on or cause a change in one as well as having the power to produce an outcome or achieve a result.

A child’s primary relationship with his/her father can affect all of the child’s relationships from birth to death, including those with friends, authority, spouses, as well as their own child(ren). Those early patterns of interaction with the father are the very patterns that will be projected forward into all relationships...forever more: not only your child’s intrinsic idea of who he/she is as he/she relates to others but also, the range of what your child considers acceptable and loving.

Girls will look for men who hold the patterns of good old dad, for, after all, they know how “to do that.” Therefore, if the father was kind, loving, and gentle, they will reach for those characteristics in men. Girls will look for, in others, what they have experienced and become familiar with in childhood. Because they’ve gotten used to those familial and historical behavioral patterns, they think that they can handle them in relationships.

Boys, on the other hand, will model themselves after their fathers. They will look for their father’s approval in everything they do, and copy those behaviors that they recognize as both successful and familiar. Thus, if dad was abusive, controlling, and dominating, those will be the patterns that their sons will imitate and emulate. However, if the father is loving, kind, supportive, and protective, boys will want to be that.

Human beings are social animals and we learn by modeling behavior. In fact, all primates learn how to survive and function successfully in the world through social imitation. Those early patterns of interaction are all children know, and it is those patterns that affect how they feel about themselves, and how they develop. Your child is vulnerable to those early patterns and incorporates those behavioral qualities in his/her repertoire of social exchange.

It is impossible to underestimate the importance of DADS!
