A longstanding supporter, Tony, has written to us, asking that we give exposure to a new petition and ask followers of this blog to sign it. We’re delighted to do so. The rest of this blog post was written by Tony:
Starting in Wales …
•Let’s put fathers back into families (item 2)
•Let’s get fatherhood on the political agenda (item 3)
•Let’s put a child’s birthright for an involved Dad above radicalised extremism (Item 5)
It’s every child’s birthright to be involved with his or her father. Let’s highlight the harm that children suffer when a resident parent (typically the mother) cynically sabotages that child’s birthright to have a healthy relationship with the non-resident parent (typically the father). This cynical sabotage is child abuse, and abuse of fathers.
The personal is political – let’s bring the plight of children and fathers into the very centre of the political stage – let’s demand of our politicians that they account to us, their electorate, for the positive actions they are taking for children and their birthright to be involved with their fathers. Let’s put them centre stage.
Please sign this petition now, whoever you are, and wherever you live. Just follow the simple instructions – it will only take seconds!”
