Dr. Boyce: Hijacking Your Child’s Father and Cutting His Parental Rights

Dr. Boyce Watkins uses the on-going battle between musical artist “The Dream” and his ex-wife, Christina Milian as a teaching and learning point about the state of our own relationships.  Dr. Watkins talks about the recent battles between the couple that took place in public, and how this is indicative of what millions of other couples do to themselves all across the country.  Dr. Watkins makes the point that when couples fight in this way and attempt to hijack one another’s parental rights, it’s always at the expense of the child.

Most dads who have children are non-custodial parents.  In too many of these situations, fathers find themselves fighting for any chance to be in the lives of their children, which Dr. Watkins says is quite disturbing.  Rather than cutting the father out of the life of the child, the father should be encouraged to interact with the child in a healthy and happy way.   Dr. Watkins says that even if you don’t approve of everything your child’s father does, you should never bad mouth him in front of the child and you should never feel the right to take away the father’s rights to be a parent.

Dr. Watkins encourages couples to seek counseling and read books to understand their own psychological challenges, so that they can create a healthy, happy environment for their children.  The video is below:

    A lot of negroid females do this to the child’s father. They keep them away from their fathers even when the father pays his child support!

    And then they wonder why their male children grow up getting into trouble, joining gangs, and dealing drugs because they are rebelling against their mother!

    A lot of mothers don’t realize this until it’s too late. Some of these negroid females are the very reason why these young brothers are on the streets instead of inside the schools.

    Thanks to FB, my son and I connected 3 years ago and have been tight as grits ever since. I had to deprogram all the lies that his mother had installed in him about me.Now I am the dominant influence in his life.Brothers, never give up.

    First of all these responses are negative and I can imagine first hand the kind of individuals that are responding… its is apparent that none of you have fathers or had fathers because your filthy mouths would not be speaking about any Asiatic woman or woman as you are speaking and it is apparent that you hate your mother’s because if you feel a need to use the language of negroid, useless etc then these are things that you are calling the woman that gave birth to your useless tails and maybe she should have aborted you because you have no respect for any woman who has bared a life or children, second not all woman are designed that way I would know first hand I am a mother and I got rid of the same filth that you speak about, most men dont want to take care of their children once the relationship ends because they want to have control and access and once a woman says no its a problem, brothers are walking away from their children because they are irresponsible and negligent and they would rather blame the woman for why they are not doing right…why does a woman have to ask for child support when the relationship ends it should be voluntarily done with out the courts intervening. please get your minds right because it is not always the woman who cause these things to happen and yes watch who you give your seeds to because not all woman are good… I have my own and I raise my daughter alone less stress and I am doing well with out the headache of a deadbeat father who choices not to do right… please stop blaming the woman because some of you men are just as rotten as the woman are.

    I was raised to never bad mouth my child’s father in his presen or talk negatively about him and it get back to my son. I was taught to encourage his father to be active in his life, love him, hug him and to tell him it’s alright to have faults and to improve on them instead of acting like you are 100% perfect.
    I did not create a life by myself and I am not the sole parent to my child. Therefore it was team work as long as he (my/husband/partner/friend) was alive. It was not perfect but it work.
    My child was reared to love both of his parents and that we both love him.
    Also the person who stated he only dates other women of color and not his own. Grow up you can locate a bitch in any race. We black women are just more honest and straight forward with the truth and we see your bs for what it is and we react to it as bs. Not all Black women are pefect and nor were they all raised to be honest and have morals. Oh, no that’s in all races.
