On February 6, 2015, the Capitol News Service in Michigan featured comments from National Parents Organization Founder and Board Chair Ned Holstein, MD, MS, in the story titled “Protecting deployed veterans in custody battles is only fair, bill sponsors say.”
The story reported on a Michigan legislative bill to prevent Michigan military members from losing custody of their children while deployed overseas.
In the story, Holstein spoke in support of the bill.
“Child development research is now crystal clear: Children do best when their loving bonds with each parent are protected after separation or divorce,” Holstein said in the story. “Unfortunately, some active duty service members have found that the custody of their children has been changed in important ways while they were serving their country overseas.”
