Attention Works:

Among teens living in "hands-on" households (TV, Internet and music choices monitored, along with after-school, evening and weekend activities), 47 percent reported having an excellent relationship with their fathers and 57 percent reported an excellent relationship with their mothers. By comparison, only 13 percent of teens with "hands-off" parents reported an excellent relationship with their fathers and 24 percent reported the same with their mothers. The survey, from The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse, looked at 1,000 American teens between the age of 12 and 17.

Civil War: A Dad's Guide to Custody
By Joseph E Cordell.


Cordell's book hits harder than a three-hundred-pound linebacker. Level-headed and no-nonsense, Civil War is based on the premise that the modern-day court system continues to operate on the assumption that, in the event of divorce, women are-and always should be-the primary custodial parent; and that, furthermore, men are frequently perceived as liars and abusers who can't be trusted with kids. Consequently, says the author, custody battles aren't the time to lose your head, but rather, to screw them on straight. This isn't pleasure reading-it's a playbook.
