We all know that despite their best efforts, family courts have been failing our children in post-divorce settlements. To compound that, parents are poorly prepared for the challenges of co-parenting or single parenting facing them once the divorce is over.
Now, fueled by Alec Baldwin's new book, we’re caught up in a gender war brewing over the reality and consequences of Parental Alienation after divorce. This is ill advised and no one will win – especially our children.
As most of you know, I am recognized as The Voice of Child-Centered Divorce and have been fighting for equitable settlements, on behalf of our innocent children, around the U.S. My Child-Centered Divorce Network has become a trusted resource for information on creating cooperative, peaceful divorces.
There is no solution to the enormous challenges resulting from parental alienation – which is an unfortunate reality in our world – if we stay stuck in the perspective of Mom versus Dad. This is not a gender issue – it’s a loving, caring, conscious parenting issue.
We need to educate all divorced parents about the emotional and psychological consequences of keeping their children from the other parent. That’s the only way we will have resolution on behalf of our children.
Wake up Dads and Moms -- and start battling in the courts together. The future well-being of our children is at stake.
