Part II of this article appeared in the last issue and explained that despite the correlational nature of both Braver’s data and father absence studies, the Braver Study chose to recommend that courts forbid custodial parents, most of whom are mothers, from relocating with the children. The Braver study also ignored attachment theory, the “primary caregiver” concept, child development research, and the effect of a major life transition on young adults such as moving away from home for the first time and attending college. Bias against women in the Braver study and in Braver’s prior statements and works was also addressed.
