Learning to Stand Up for What's Right We tell those in authority to report abuse immediately and for kids younger than eighteen(?) that is the only tool we have to help. We should tell the over 18's they have a moral responsibility to all the younger to try to keep them from similar fates. More >>

Why Guys Don't Call Your commentary today hit a nerve. I am a 54 year old divorced man who waited until my kids were grown before dating again. I've been that guy who doesn't call back a few times now for a lot of the reasons you touched on. More >>

Joe Paterno and the Penn State Child Abuse Horror It is my never-to-be-humble opinion that coach Joe Paterno from Penn State ought to be in jail. Fired wasn't enough.

He's Not A Man If He Denies His Child ...You took a call recently that has been on my mind. The call was from the lady who got married in July to a guy who does not claim his child...
