NFL fumbles on domestic violence

Sadly, there is nothing shocking about the recently leaked video showing Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens dragging his unconscious girlfriend out of an elevator after allegedly punching her. Domestic violence is committed in all segments of society.

One of the fundamental reasons the custody courts routinely fail to protect children is that they misunderstand the nature of contested custody cases.
Although a large majority of contested custody cases are really domestic violence cases, courts routinely assume they are “high conflict” cases by which they mean the parents are angry with each other and act out in ways that are harmful to children. Too often these expectations are self-fulfilling.

A really good article from the New York Times articulates some common problems with society’s response to domestic violence and especially the frequent inappropriate response of custody courts to domestic violence.

Restraint & Seclusion

Restraint & Seclusion

posted on: Jun 29, 2014 | author: admin

Laws and policies are currently in place to protect schools and staff that abuse restraint and seclusion. Many schools are allowed to isolate children in seclusion rooms and to restrain children with holds, pinning, and even with the aid of mechanical restraints such as bungee cords, duct tape, or handcuffs. Restraint and seclusion is used mostly on minorities and disabled children.

It is important for businesses to understand the enormous benefits the Quincy Solution provides to the business community. Today many are unaware of the money that can be saved by ending our tolerance for men’s abuse of women.

That is the question. Do you believe that all abuse is interconnected? Do you believe, whether we are victim, perpetrator, or merely part of a ripple of the effects that come from abuse, that abuse impacts us all? Do you believe that the economic cost of abuse, nearly $500 billion a year, is far less than the emotional cost? Would you, could you believe a child who disclosed abuse to you?

We’re told there may be new news on this story. Marin Family Court awaited the results of a state-ordered audit of its family law processes, local court watchdog groups gathered outside the Marin County Civic Center to protest the court’s destruction of child-custody files in autumn of 2009.

There are only four days until the end of New York’s legislative session.
The Child Victims Act and the Rape is Rape Bill have not had a vote in either house. We have four days to remind our elected officials that we think people who rape children deserve consequences, and adult survivors of child rape deserve their day in court. Don’t these bills at least deserve a vote? Don’t our children deserve a vote?

Nicholas Kristof, the New York Times columnist recently wrote a really useful column about sexism that makes it easier to understand and supports many of the points I have made in my next book, The Quincy Solution: Stop Domestic Violence and Save $500 Billion. His column is particularly helpful because sexism is routinely misunderstood. Sexism is critical to understanding domestic violence because it is the cause of men’s abuse of wives and girl-friends.

Fathers. We all have them. They come in many colors, sizes, types and varieties. Many are good. I want to honor those good ones today.
The good father I have in mind is my son-in-law who taught me what a good father looks like.
