While I am not a single parent, I can say that some of the best times I
ever had with my sons was on Scout outings. One is now in his twenties and
about to be a father, the other is in college. Memories of places I have
been with one or both of them will be treasured. Your fathers who want to
monopolize visitation should consider coming along on the Scout activity,
be urged to come along. You may wind up recruiting them, and Scout
activities during the weeks can help some frustrated father instincts. Of
course if father does not know how to be Dad, if he is working on his
Masters in A------ry, or if wounds are fresh, it won't work.
