How are WE suppose to know how dead beats feel? Do they even HAVE feelings?
How do men who aren't hands-on involved fathers feel about their children only contacting and taking an interest in him when they want or need something(usually money)?
I would imagine they would feel no different than anyone who feels like they are being taken advantage of.
Fathers who are non-custodial, but absent by choice owe their children more than money can ever buy.
Anything they might feel is an example of the "doctrine of logical consequences."
Becoming a lousy father is like winding up in Hell---you've really got to want it.
