not the only deadbeats.
"She" can be one too!
When you look at the deadbeat sites, ask yourself if you're
behaving like a deadbeat, and remember that men are victims of "her"
deadbeat mentality also.
Whether you are a custodial parent, a non-custodial parent, a
first wife, a second wife, a girlfriend, a boyfriend, ask yourself if you're behaving in
the best interest of the child.
Changing the focus here..."We are the
court fools, who must ridicule the ideas and suppositions put before us.
By our pranks, we force people to challenge their assumptions, and look
at things in another way. By our pranks, we reopen the minds of others
to another view of reality. By our pranks, we make people think. Without
us, the sect would stagnate and die. So prank well, and prank
I'm thinking about sending this in to Webster's dictionary. If they
can put ain't in there, why not "family" terms?
Child: Person conceived by 2 people.
NCP: Non-custodial parent who gives child financial and emotional
support and has the best interest of the child's well-being and happiness.
Also called Mom or Dad.
CP: Custodial parent who gives child financial and emotional support
and has the best interest of the child's well-being and happiness. Also
called Mom or Dad.
Deadbeat: A NCP or CP who refuses the child either one or both of
the financial and emotional support. You can not be a NCP or a CP
unless both needs are provided.
The point of this is that I've heard many people claim they are not a
deadbeat because they a) pay their child support every month (even though
they don't ever see the child). or b) they don't pay child support but they have visitation and talk to their child on a
regular basis. To me, a true parent is one who is there both financially
and emotionally. I say there are good NCP/CPs and bad NCPs/CPs,
however I think I should start re-wording it....there are NCP/CPs and
there are deadbeats. I don't see where there is any middle ground.
Now, some of you will say, what about the NCPs who pay CS and want to be
involved in the child's life, but the CP won't let them. Here, we are dealing with a NCP and a deadbeat.
My friend just decided to give up his fight for custody stating that his
children were upset the last time he talked to them because CP was telling
them that dad was trying to take them away from her. Here we have
NCP and deadbeat.
Okay, I'm done.
