Father Called “Unfit” For Refusing Young Son’s Demand For Dinner At McDonald’s
A father has been labeled unfit because he refused to cave during his young son's temper tantrum over dinner plans.
See if you agree.
David Schorr had plans to take his young son, Max, to their usual spot for dinner during a recent custody visit, but the child demanded to go to McDonald's instead. Mr.Schorr denied his son's request because he felt that Max had been eating "too much junk food." The father issued an ultimatum. Dinner at any other restaurant, or no dinner at all. Max threw a tantrum, but dad held firm in his decision not to reward his son's bad behavior and five year-old Max was taken home to his mom.
The mother, Bari Yunis Schorr, immediately reported the incident to their court appointed psychologist, Marilyn Schiller. Dr. Schiller demanded that Mr. Schorr submit to a forensic examination before the couple's next custody hearing and has stated that he is "wholly incapable of taking care of his son" and should be denied his weekend visitation in spite of the fact that two and a half years of partial custody "has run smoothly without incident."
Was dad within his rights to deny his son dinner at McDonald's, or would dinner there have been better than no dinner at all? Do you think Mr. Schorr is unfit, and should lose his weekend visitation?
