I'm totally sure this happened exactly the way the headline implies it did.

<Reads TFA>

Civil suit, messy divorce, flouting court orders, nonpayment of child support, also: written by the NY Post.

Sounds legit to me!

The line in TFA before that is precious:
"I did what any 43-year-old Jewish man would do - I told my mother."

Methinks I know why they are getting divorced.

"So he gave his son an ultimatum: dinner anywhere other than McDonald's - or no dinner."

Honestly, this is a stupid way to do it.  A better way -- you fix a healthy, nutritious dinner and let the kid know that this is his dinner.  He can eat it or not but this is dinner.  By not giving the kid any dinner, yeah, he's neglecting the kid.

It's the circle of fail. Fortunately these crazy kids decided to divorce so that instead of making just themselves and their crotchfruit insane until they die, they can go on and make more people insane. Except the next time they get married I'm sure they will be sure that this time this partner is 'The One'.
 
2013-11-07 04:49:48 PM
I don't understand how she "immediately took him to McD". Your kid throws a fit on the sidewalk and you take them the fark home. Once there, you put them to bed and allow them to get up to eat as many fruits and vegetables as they want. Done. Over. Also the soon to be ex wife is a raving psycho and so is her scumbag psychologist.

My sister and I never got to eat fast food when we were kids.
Even on road trip vacations, my mother packed lunches. Egg salad on wheat bread. Triscuits for a snack.
I think we were lucky and could have apple juice or something along those lines to drink.

It's not that hard. Are they a decent, honest, hard working person? Do they like kids, and want kids for the right reasons? Are they patient and nurturing?

If no to any of the above, they're probably going to make shiatty parents.

Totally agree on this point, and this is where the dad farked up.  I'd toss in some lean protein, too, but that's just me.  It isn't tough to have some chopped up grilled chicken in the fridge, too.  A five year old is certainly old enough to get his own cut veggies, fruit, and whatnot.

No, he did the opposite of what I suggested.

What he should have done: Present healthy food for the child to eat.

What he did do: Deny the child any food.

One of these is legal and healthy for the child.  The other is not.

For the cost of a Happy Meal, he could easily have cut up a green pepper and an apple and given the kid a hunk of cheese and some grilled chicken.  Heck, twice over.

Actually, using the denial of food as a means of punishment can absolutely cause significant amounts of long-term health issues.

Mostly this. I'd allow vegetable chopping with some supervision, but yeah, you're spot on. My parents only took us out for fast food as an occasional treat.

Yeah, but they don't fix meals on Manhattan. They just eat out. He met your criteria by saying that the kid could eat out anywhere else but McDonalds. McDonalds being a placeholder for crap food. This guy does what he says he will do and can obviously afford it, so he did not fail to feed the kid dinner. The kid said no to dinner. Are you going to buy something that will be thrown away?
