I know a lot of women who keep children from fathers, not because they are bad parents but for many others reasons.
Some of the most common ones I see:
1) Behind on child support.
2) Bitter because theres a new woman.
3) Mom doesn't approve of dad life style when hers really isn't any better.
4) Criminal history, even when they have changed there ways and no longer live a life of crime.
I'm curious how you ladies feel. Is it ok to deny a father time with their child because they can't afford all the child support they owe? Is it ok to do this because you don't like stepmommy? Because dad drinks or smokes weed when the kids aren't around? Because they have a rocky past and have been to prison.
Edit to add-Also when women tell their men if they leave they won't ever see their children again! I see this all the time and I find it crazy.
