    Dear Editor, ?An eyeful of mothers? (9/23) spews anti-father stereotypes that have been debunked by social science, such as ?men are the ones who avoid the chores of parenting.? A recent study found 37% of working dads would quit their jobs, and another 38% would take a pay cut, to spend more time with their kids if their spouses could support the family. www.cnn.com/2007/US/Careers/06/13/dads.work/index.html The Israeli News Service recently announced a study showing dads are equal to moms in parental instinct and when divorced dads want to parent it is emotional and biological. www.israelnewsagency.com/psychologytodaydivorcechildrencustodyfathersright48060307.html And the largest federally-funded study on divorce in the U.S., by Professor Sanford Braver, found most dads want to actively parent but are often denied access to their children by mothers or courts.
