The Running Whys - Eleni Ryan

Her running career started innocently enough, after hearing positive accounts from a friend who had participated in a number of local races.

For Eleni Ryan, the Clifton native who moved to Fredericton 20 years ago, the sport became an intriguing but distant thought after those conversations in 2010. 767 more words

Study: Children Of Divorce Undergo Less Stress Living With Both Parents Children of divorced parents suffer less stress if they spend time living with… 5050Rights.org ~~  http://washington.cbslocal.com/…/study-children-of-divorce…/  --  WASHINGTON.CBSLOCAL.COM|BY WNEW
Real Dads Embracing Non-Violence“And so, while our federal government escalates its military involvement around the globe, soldiers are returning to empty homes, child alienation and felony support warrants. I was able to save the life of one such victim from attempted suicide at a parenting convention we sponsored in 2011, but the unsuccessful instances are more telling, see i.e. Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen.Org (2009). Father discrimination may be the convenient scapegoat for politicians seeking to advance themselves, but as President Calvin Coolidge is quoted: “A country which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.” This message resonates as well with our domestic defenders. Virtually all responders on 9-11 were men entitled to equal treatment under the law. Yet an unpublicized number of fathers became eternally separated from their children and families without any changes to these laws as construed and enforced by our courts.”

A Mother Comes Clean about Trying to Keep Her Daughter from Her Father

Last night I cuddled up on the sofa with my five-year-old daughter Ruby as we enjoyed one of her favourite TV shows. It was the story of Tracy Beaker — who, I should explain to any non- parents, is a wonderful character created by the children’s author Jacqueline Wilson. 293 more words

Fighting the disease, not treating the symptoms... Not So Wicked Step Mother - 2015

Hello Male Parents,  I wish you well and hope you know that your not at all alone.  Life can give us skills whether we want them or not.  In time, every father facing custody and court cases involving family law will develop a 'thicker skin' as we all know that nothing is more personal then an attack against your human rights, your rights as a parent and your ability to parent a child.  
75213-pas I would like to express a very important concept today.  This is extremely bold and progressive.  I believe their is no 'movements' in the world today to change the opinion of culture in the way that will actually build up momentum.  
I would like to give you an example. (the example is not aimed to defame or harm homosexual couples in any way, simply a random example.)  
     Equality for homosexual relationships in the USA have become popular.  
     Single Male parents seeking Equality in Custody and Family law is NOT.
[caption id="attachment_472" align="alignleft" width="332"]Mother interferes with daughter-dad relationship Mother interferes with daughter-dad relationship[/caption] Who do you believe will be the first to win Public approval in the equality of raising children?  
A large portion of Society will back gay rights to have two males or two females raise a child...  Will Society recognize the human rights of a Male parent to have ABSOLUTE EQUALITY in custody decisions or family court?    
The reason behind this is because Gay rights do not threaten the power of women as much as the concept ' MAN VS WOMAN '
When I started to think about this in depth, I realized that all the titles 'Fathers rights'  are actually a way of setting your self apart from the majority of people who are actually in favor in society and doing more work to make and change laws.  You can go out in your yard and wave a giant flag 'TEAM MEN!'  then go into society against 'team women' and see how big the teams are... 
Alienation is Child Abuse The real team we should all be one is ' TEAM EQUALITY FOR PARENTS ' using Human rights and a 'gender-less' approach to rights as a parent.  This way you are not allowing society to put you on the small team.  You are a parent...  the same way you are a Human (EQUAL).  Many arguments are made based on age and gender.  'for the best interests of the child' should NEVER be used as a justification to disregard the rights of a parent.  The best interests of a child is just a term that was created by a person, made popular in litigation and put into law as a strong tactic to redirect focus and manipulate the overall outcome of a case.  A 4 year old is NOT going to remember being taken away from his/her mother in the same respects as a parent that loses his/her child.  Day to day memories, complex thought process, life and all that we as adults have to do to live is drastically effected and sometimes destroyed by the term 'in the best interests of the child'.  A child's best interest is Equality & Human rights.  Infact.. you.. yes you.. reading this.. were you a child?  Are you suffering loss right now? are you hurting?  do you see a broken legal system that effects you because your gender?  Are you best interest still important to the court?  NO... 
In the BEST interest of Human Rights and Equality, as a parent, I advocate on the equal rights of a child and parents to eliminate any gender bias or popular cultural opinions about any parent.  In law and to the world I am a Human and parent first...  Do not judge me by my gender.  
Human rights are LAW,  public policy guides local and federal laws through a general cultural opinion that develops in popular media and different 'movements' in society.  People (yes.. just people...) will lobby and push concepts on our government to enact laws that limit our human rights, this is not legal, but worded so ambiguously it is not correlated to its violation of our basic human rights until intense litigation and logical arguments are made and no one seems to argue it when its enacted.
Amendment 14 US Constitution - 2015There is NO special exceptions to Equality.  Human rights are the same for all Human beings with NO SPECIAL CONSIDERATION for gender, age or race.
[caption id="attachment_469" align="alignright" width="300"]Stolen Child and Abused by Mom Stolen Child and Abused by Mom[/caption] You must treat the disease, not the symptoms.  
This overall message is critical, but I have still seen people waving the wrong flag.  Yes it is glorious but your on the small weak team that is going to get stomped out, you have seen it... its not helping.  The overall picture is human rights, parental rights.  When you go into court, try making a point to keep yourself from defining yourself on the team that is not popular or favored in society.  Proudly claim yourself as a parent without defining yourself as a man.  This needs to be common practice in family law.  All references to gender in ALL forms of law need to be ELIMINATED.

My name is Ryan Sellars and I am a Human being... a Parent.  Do not define me by my gender or race or popular opinion, but by my basic human rights as a parent.
