Fox recently announced its intention to launch a new reality show called Bad Dads. In Bad Dads Jim Durham, director of the National Child Support Center, “functions as a sort of ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ for tracking deadbeats…[Durham’s role is as] an avenger of penniless single mothers [who] hunts down deadbeat dads and forces them to pay child support…

“In the pilot, a financially destitute mom is contrasted with her wealthy ex-husband, who is living the high life. Durham confronts the man at his country club to shake him down in front his friends. It’s ambush reality TV.”

According to Reuters, Durham will target fathers who are behind on their child support by “making their lives miserable — foreclosing on their house, repossessing their car. He will squeeze them…”

We oppose Bad Dads for six reasons:

  • Bad Dads publicly humiliates children of broken families by depicting their fathers as not loving or caring for them.
  • Bad Dads unfairly depicts divorced fathers as uncaring and selfish, when research clearly shows that most divorced dads pay their child support and remain a part of their children’s lives, often under difficult circumstances. 
  • The records of the child support agencies are notorious for being riddled with errors–they cannot be relied upon to determine who is a legitimate “deadbeat” and who isn’t. 
  • Bad Dads singles out fathers for shaming, when U.S. Census data shows that noncustodial fathers are more likely to pay their child support than noncustodial mothers. 
  • Bad Dads glorifies private collection companies whose practices are so abusive that even the National Organization for Women has condemned them and urged women to avoid them. 
  • Television is rife with negative, misleading and unfair depictions of fathers–Bad Dads promises to be one of the worst examples.

  1. this society is always showing the the man is bad, why dont u show that woman are bad too. they become prostitutes/ go to night clubs spend night with other man while childrens suffer

  2. i m in full support of this child custody fight.

  3. It is evidence that men had been treated as a like FREE ATM machine noting else , on the other hand women do the crime and got scot free and all term the same as social serivce, like even killing the unborn child, killing the husabnds burn alive, cheating, extrotion, murder by thier boy friends, use child to fulfill thier sexual desires( not rape) a long list. result more and more criminla women are moving freely in the society and convering this civilized society to a animal society and creation of huge fatherless child.

    The show Bad Dads must be stopped immediately as it paints the father hood in a very bad light.

  5. Alongwith the emotional trauma, men have to face legal harassment and financial extortion at divorce too. He is not even allowed to continue living with his own child! How could society tolerate this?

    This is totally unacceptable.
