Dad arrested for assaulting 2-month-old daughter during visitation (Adams County, Ohio)

If your relationship with the mother doesn't even survive the first six months of a baby's life, then you shouldn't have visitation. These guys typically don't bond with the baby at all, leaving the child vulnerable to this kind of abuse.

Babies need a consistent, loving caregiver (the mother)--not visitation with the hostile daddy looking to minimize his child support and his new wife.

Unmarried mothers, especially when they are not cohabitating with the father, should get full, automatic custody of their babies. Period. End of discussion. That 's the way it used to happen, and we didn't see anything like this kind of abuse in the past.

Dad is identified as REGINAL MORAN.
