The DadTalk group is a forum for conversation among fathers, step-fathers, grandfathers and other father figures of daughters, regardless of marital status, age, and whether the dad lives with or away from the child. We share our wisdom, concerns, experience, strengths, hope, challenges and joys of raising daughters and stepdaughters in today's world--and strengthening our relationships with our daughters.
The group is pro-female and we discuss divorce/separation--but ONLY within the context the context of keeping communication and relationships strong.
DadTalk is NOT a forum for legal aspects of divorce (including polemics about the courts, complaining or blaming ex-spouses, ranting against attorneys, etc.). Those conversations belong in the scores of Internet groups that deal with specifically with divorce, family court and custody issues--and will not be accepted for posting here. We recommend two active, relevant Yahoo groups as alternatives for people concerned about legal aspects of divorce:
1) Copingw-divorce-separation: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/copingw-divorce-separation
2) Dealing_with_Divorce: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Dealing_with_Divorce
