We recently wrote a provocative post suggesting that in an increasing number of cases, "single parenting" has become a lifestyle choice. We suggested that an alarming number of unscrupulous parents are deploying common tactics, shared within online networks, to strip assets, gain an income, often for life and then remove the targeted parent who no … Continue reading WARNING! PAS: You’re next…
I am strong. But I am tired. I am physically tired from living with the mental anguish of grieving for children I love so dearly, who are close enough to hug, but who are now prevented, by you, from loving me. I am mentally tired from the pain of knowing I don't deserve that and … Continue reading I see you! Do you?
The recent snow here in the UK has reminded me of one of the best days of my life. A few years back now I went out for the day with my two boys, B and T; it had been snowing heavily and there was thick snow everywhere. What else is a loving father and … Continue reading One of the Best Days of My Life
I once heard parent alienation, where one parent has to get through each day with a living bereavement, poignantly described as "drowning in a sea of hope being hit by endless waves of grief." If you've ever been unfortunate enough to see someone actually struggling in water, they are literally consumed by a largely alien, … Continue reading Why does so much PA advice describe water to the drowning?
We quoted some potent statistics in the article we chose to herald in the New Year. The statistics came from a variety of reputable sources, but when compiled in one place they present the stark reality of parental alienation in the UK alone: 1 million children alienated from the non-resident parent (at least) 97% of … Continue reading 2018: Will Family Compassion Finally Beat Alienation?

So how are those fine words working out in practice? Around 1 in 3 marriages end in … Continue reading If 2017 was the year of alienation, what will 2018 bring?

The cynics amongst you may well raise an eyebrow to the cliched plot, the over merchandising and at the time the … Continue reading Do You Want to Build a Snowman?
It is widely recognised that one of the factors contributing towards the fast-spreading social plague that is parental alienation, is the refusal of the reactionary institutions allegedly set up to defend our liberties and promote justice for all citizens to even recognise the term, let alone the resultant symptoms and their impact on targeted parents … Continue reading Parental Alienation: Is the continual spread of this abuse caused by organisation culture?
You've heard the phrase "it takes two to tango?" Well parent alienation requires an antagonist and an antagonised, a targeter and a target and a resident parent and a non-resident, in that order. While there are a few exceptions to the rule, because parent alienation is the act of one parent turning the children against … Continue reading The shadow on the wall – Interview with a self-confessed (but reformed) parent alienator.
