For Immediate Release
April 25th is Parental Alienation Awareness Day
F4J Fathers 4 Justice Canada recently sent two of their Directors to attend the Canadian Symposium on Parental Alienation Syndrome.
The Directors of our group recognize the signs and behaviors all too well.
"We've become complacent in society. when we see a parent being belittled on the tv or in cartoons, we think it's funny. I assure you that the real life alienation of a child/parent relationship is tragic," says Kris Titus, National Coordinator for F4J Fathers 4 Justice Canada.
The organization receives calls and email from parents across the country who are being alienated from their children. Denial of access is a weapon of choice in family law disputes and affords a custodial parent uninterrupted time to influence the child.
Mike Murphy, a Fathers 4 Justice Director says, "Parental Alienation is a tragic form of child abuse and can result directly from our current dysfunctional Family Law (FLAW) court system. It pits one parent against the other with the prize being the children. We need a presumption of equal parenting to help minimize the conflict and help the children. Its all about our children."
Mike runs a blog about parental alienation that is currently receiving almost 5000 hits per month.
Dr. Marty McKay said it very well at the Canadian Symposium on Parental Alienation, "Anything not joint physical custody is moving towards alienation."
