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. Fathers are crucial in the upbringing and development of their children.

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.

Being the Dad! Reflecting on Father’s Day

Published

Dads
1978, Me and My Dad

What a day, for Fathers! Whether you’re a GrandFather, GodFather, Father or StepFather in your title, it’s something special to be a “DAD”! So, If you’re one of those, I’m talking to you!

Today, I’m giving a shout out to all you DADs out there! To the unsung heroes of the family, silently putting themselves out there for the sacrifice and safety of their families.  For the ones investing in your kid’s lives and giving it all for those they love.

We want so much for our kids don’t we? We want them to have a better life, better future, a better world. We really want them to LISTEN to us for their own safety and pass on the wisdom which we learned from our fathers and the many more trips around the sun than they’ve had! We definitely don’t want them to  make the same goofy mistakes we’ve made.

It’s Tough Sometimes!

It’s not always appreciated though is it being a dad? I get it.  Our kids don’t always appreciate all the work and efforts or the worrying or the love we’ve given over the years until much later in life.

Well, keep doing it dads!  We gotta keep being the role model they need. Dads have to Keep pouring into their lives, if not who will? The TV, social media, bad influencers?   Keep that chin up Dad, It’s worth it.  Maybe not in your expected time, but in God’s timing, have patience and keep, keeping on!

But wait there’s more!

Let’s just say, you haven’t been the best dad. Due to whatever happened or for whatever reason and maybe it’s even your fault; you always have today to change for the better! You have today to initiate the healing, to let forgiveness begin. Plant the seed of love and kindness in their hearts and be gentle with them… Our kids are worth it.  Make those hard, Selfless Changes to “Be the Dad”!!!

Daddy Issues

And for all of us as children, If you haven’t seen or spoken to your dad, reach out, send a note, give ’em a call or better yet a HUG! You too can always make today the day you change for the better for your relationship with your Dad. I’m sure they’ll appreciate it.. Even if they don’t show it all the time!

Nobody needs “daddy issues”!  And, Nobody’s perfect, not even you.  We all suck sometimes and bitterness can build walls better than any contractor out there!  So, send some love & kindness to your Dad. It’s healing for everyone…

That’s a Wrap!

I appreciate my dad! We don’t have some TV picture perfect relationship, but I know he taught me what he could in the best way he knew how. Sometimes working up to three jobs. He loved and loves me and my sisters in the ways he knows how and provided for us always..

So, to all you dads out there, Congrats! Thanks for being the dad!  What a blessing to pass on to your kids showing them the role model they need in life.  Keep it Up! It’s worth it in the end!

That’s all I got for now….. Happy Father’s Day
