Dads, Fathers, Sperm Donors — 2 Comments

  1. You missed another very strong component of society – those parents who dote on their kids, but have fallen out with their partners. There’s more than one father who has been estranged from their children as a result of mothers pursuing a vendetta (I’m not talking about necessarily anyone we know, this is an observation from my previous employment).

Sure, child support in terms of finance is necessary, but being cut out of any decision making with respect to education, every day nurturing or even health care provision is a real problem, for fathers who conscientiously provide the finance. Putting the child central is a problem that many feuding couples fail to address and our society is poorer for it.
