What Representing Men In Divorce Taught Me About Fatherhood | Marilyn York | TEDxUniversityofNevada

What Is It?

The YouTube video What Representing Men In Divorce Taught Me About Fatherhood | Marilyn York | TEDxUniversityofNevada by the YouTube channel TEDx Talks.

Here is the description for this video:

Attorney Marilyn York owns a Men’s Rights Family Law Firm in Reno, Nevada, established in 2001. She and her ten female employees focus on representing men for two reasons: 1. As her talk explains, fathers are crucial in the upbringing and development of their children; and 2. Fathers are the disadvantaged parent in family court and society and while the laws are improving, the statistics are not. There are currently more than 17,000,000 children growing up in America without their fathers, and every year this number is growing. According to the Center for Disease Control, children from fatherless homes account for 90% of homeless and runaway children; 71% of high school dropouts and 63% of youth suicides. Listen to this talk to find out how you can help America’s 17,000,000 fatherless children avoid these fates! Marilyn D. York is a Men’s Rights Divorce Attorney, licensed in California since 1998 and Nevada since 1999, where she is a Certified Family Law Specialist. Since 2001, Marilyn has owned her law firm in Reno, Nevada, where she and her 9 female employees specifically represent men in divorce and family law battles. Marilyn chose her career because of her passion for children and relationships, but most of all, Marilyn is driven to help underdogs. While the laws are improving for men, not all laws are yet gender equal and the interpretation and enforcement of those that are, have a long way to go. Despite her focus on representing men, Marilyn has a deep compassion for women in need as well. It isn’t lost on Marilyn that women remain disadvantaged outside Family Court. She serves that need as Board President for a local housing program for homeless young women, Nevada Youth Empowerment Project, or NYEP. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Dreams

Fathers And Sons | Complaining | A Funeral Home And Police

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was with my parents and a group of people outside, and we crossed a rope bridge.

The next thing that I remember is my dad and I going to an event for fathers and sons that took place during the evening or night, and after the event we were told to follow the group but they did not say where we were going or why.

Two Women Tell Me About Their Aging Fathers Or Grandfathers

Dream 1

I think that I had a dream that involved drooling in some unknown way, this probably happened because I started drooling in the real world when I started sleeping on my side while using the SnoreDoc anti-snoring device (tongue stabilizing device), but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

This dream was probably inspired by a draft post that I made last night for the movie Late Phases, which I will probably be posting either later today or soon.

A Father’s Day Rhyme / Poem By My Brother GC

Recently my brother GC shared a rhyme / poem / whatever that he made for this Father’s Day as a tribute to fathers, and so I decided to share it and he says that anyone is free to share it and even change it up if they want to:

The people of the world thank the fathers for all they do and for all they have done

On this day celebrated by lovers, daughters, and sons;

For they are the people many consider their most important—their number one.

Their job on this earth is most important and is never truly over.

Those that they work hard for are as lucky as four-leaf clovers.

Some do not appreciate or thank them enough,

Even though what they do is so important and oh-so tough.

In protecting, providing, and loving, they are well versed.

In the steps to our creation/birth, fathers are our first.

On Father’s Day, people celebrate and cheer;

For if not for them, most would not be here.

They are the bee’s knees and out of sight.

Amazing and dependable, they’re *hand clap* DY-NO-MITE!

Most can be a father, but only the best try to do it right.

In our thoughts, memories, and hugs we should hold them tight.

Happy Father’s Day to all and to all a good day and a good night.

-My Brother GC
