Regular readers know that I am outraged by the spate of child abuse deaths that seem to fill our papers. The names chage and it seems every few days we here another tragic tale but seldom do we get more then a glancing peek into the train wreck families. The newspapers seldom mention what if anything the parents did for a living. Often the location of the biological father remains speculation at best.
A rare article into the larger picture was written in yesterdays NY Post by Prof. W Bradford Wilcox of the University of Virginia. Child tragedies have one common denominator in the vast majority of cases. The mothers unmarried live in boyfriend is fifty times more likely to die from abuse then those living in intact marriages.
Even Step relationships are less dangerous for the children. A man who has taken vows to his new wife is commited to her and her children. Some of the tragedies are also corelated with poverty and drugs.
However, the notion of disposable marriages and not solving your problems is potentialy harmful to your children. The mental health profession has been influenced somewhat by the deranged lefts anti family and free love pathologies. One's right to live a carefree life ends when you decided to have or father a child.
You have opted for the most rewarding challenge in life but now must bear the responsabilities.
Women and Men should understand that divorce and general lack of respect for each other are harmful to their children. Women should understand that they are potentially harming their children when they divorce. The mental health profession still largely lives by the myth of divorce does not harm women and children and that single parenthood is the equivalent or sometimes better then intact marriages. The worst thing a woman can do to her children is to use them as pawns in a battle with their ex.
Marriages like any other concept do fail . However the notions of mental health cost free divorce and preferable single parenthood are dangerous to children and to women themselves.
I will run part Chapter three of Daniel Flynn's Why the Left Hates America this Evening. Chapter 3 Radical Anti American Chic or in Beakerspeak Why the left thinks they are more intelligent and cooler then the rest of us. They are deluded about many things but they are clearly not as witty or comedicaly gifted. A simple look at the Disturbed er Disgruntled Chemists comedic ineptitude and profanity vs the wit and verve shown in this blog at times and on Mr Beamishes blog often prove the point.
It is near impossible to be comedic when one is walking around in a self loathing morally self righteous fog of delusion.
