Never before has society been faced with such a challenge-deciding what principles should guide lawmakers, parents and the courts in protecting the rights and needs of children involved in divorce and custody cases. Tens of millions of children are being deprived of their human and psychological rights to treasured relationships with male parents. Why? How can fathers fight for justice? "Betrayal of the Child", written with compassion and insight, refutes "The Best Interests of the Child" (Freud, Solnit & Goldstein) single parent theology and concludes that only two parents can serve the best interests of children.
