Comments - what they say about us"Congratulations on your outstanding web site..."
"I just felt a massive weight lifted from my chest reading this website! ...
I recently separated amicably from my wife and we have a daughter.
I was devastated and still struggle when I don't see her.
At the time I begged my wife to ensure that I could still have her on a
regular basis (as putting to bed was one of the highlights of my day).
I was struggling with this concept of joint custody and feared what
psychological and sociological effects this could have had on my daughter.
Reading this website and the references you have supporting this notion
of shared parenting put the biggest smile on my face!! ...
I thought I was one of the only blokes out there who in this situation
I didn't know any other single parent bloke who wasn't either the sole
parent or the "absent" father.
I've always had an interest in this area since my sociology degree and
surprisingly hadn't come across this concept of family before.

I will end by just saying that it is down to people like Arthur Baker
and David Cannon that men and women in this situation can have happiness
and freedom from worry during very stressful times"
