Parental Alienation is a form of child abuse | Bradenton Herald

Bradenton Herald Article on PA by Glen - May2014

Parental alienation: “a disorder that arises primarily in the context of child-custody disputes. Custody can go on for years to the detriment of the children.”

Most people do not know about parental alienation; it occurs when one parent‘s efforts to consciously or unconsciously brainwash a child combine with the child’s own bad-mouthing of the other parent.

In severe cases, the child won’t want to see or talk to the alienated parent. Every day in our own community and around the globe, children experience parental alienation.

Parental alienation parenting deprives children of their right to be loved by and showing love for both of their parents.

The destructive actions by an alienating parent can become abusive to the child — as the alienating behaviors are disturbing, confusing and often frightening to the child, and can rob the child of their sense of security and safety leading to maladaptive emotional or psychiatric reactions.

Parents are unequipped and unable to protect our children against an alienating mother or father.

We are talking about damaged parents, both mother and father whose children need to be protected from a different kind of abuse. Family courts routinely allow this destructive practice with no consequences.

One must ask, is this really in “the best interest of the child?”

High conflict attorneys are part of the problem as well by delay hearings; bring in “experts” and others as this gives there client more time to abuse the targeted parent. Parental alienation leads to the emotional damage of children.

Bottom line: Parental alienation is not a gender, custody or domestic abuse issue. It is a child abuse issue. Period.

April 25th was Parental Alienation Day in honor of all the children who have been wrongfully deprived of the love of one of their parents.

  1. Let no good deed go unpunished. With good intentions Judge Gorcyca acted in the best interest of children. Now that a judge has finally listened, we must stand and rally.
    Pathogenic parenting is a child protection issue NOT a ‪#‎childcustody‬ issue. When addressing ‪#‎PathogenicParenting‬, mistakes can and will be made attempting to do the right thing. Mistakes can be fixed. When it comes to a parent emotionally and psychologically abusing children through ‪#‎ParentalAlienation‬ and hostile aggressive parenting, “there is no right way to do the wrong thing.”
    CL: If you are a parent that has to deal with lies that have been untested, interference by the custodial parent and a full campaign of hatred from your kids and the ex, you need to speak up on behalf of this judge.
    We don’t just encourage you to read these posts, we encourage action. It is only by protecting the vulnerable judges who on occasion get it right and that do punish alienation can we send a message to the entire judicial bench that we are sick of it.
    Please write on behalf of this judge showing she used her judicial independence to heal this family because of the toxic brainwashing of the mother. Her conduct might not sit well with the board but her decisions were in the best interests of the children to end the parental alienation and dispense of testimony that did not make sense from the brainwashed children.
    Let the Michigan Supreme Court and Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission know that you ‪#‎supportGorcyca‬.
