Book Review- They’re Your Kids Too: The Single Father’s Guide to Defending Your Fatherhood in a Broken Family Law System
Today, I am providing a review for Anne P. Mitchell's book-They're Your Kids Too: The Single Father's Guide to Defending Your Fatherhood in a Broken Family Law System.
I wanted to review the book because I believe part of raising an emotionally healthy son is being able to have a mature and respectful relationship with his father. It is imperative that as mothers we do not create friction or conflict in the father/child relationship by involving your child in adult conflicts. This book was of particular interest to me because I know that father and son relationships are the least nurtured and in divorce or separation, this relationship can suffer.
A father who is willing and able to provide for his child with healthy and loving intentions should be allowed to do so. Ms. Mitchell's book equips fathers with the tools and resources they need to not only empower themselves with legal information but also information to protect the well-being of their children. The book covers everything from parental alienation, co-parenting to how to ensure that you are not falsely accused of abusing your children. The book provides you with resources in every state as well as a kidnap prevention and emergency checklist.
Ms. Mitchell includes everything a dad will need to protect his rights and not feel hopeless or helpless when it comes to being actively involved with your children.
Ms. Mitchell gives singles dads a road-map to advocating for their rights with her practical and insightful advice. It is clear that Ms. Mitchell not only has experience with helping fathers in the family court system, but that she is passionate about advocating for fathers and their children.
