GOAL: Develop Ways to Quickly Reunite Alienated Children and Parents
Many parents and children endure long-term painful separation due to parental alienation that usually begins around the time of parental divorce or separation. The alienation is driven by the parent lacking the maturity and genuine concern for the children to leave them out of the conflict. To this type of parent, who often has one or more personality disorders, the children are nothing more than another "tool" to get back at the other parent. He or she thinks nothing of employing lies, badmouthing, instillation of fear and hatred of the other parent; essentially any dishonorable method that he or she can get away with to turn the children against the other parent as an indirect form of revenge.
This type of parent will very often seek and win primary physical custody to accomplish this, as he or she cares nothing about preserving the child's relationship and regular contact with the other parent. He or she is often able to get this due to the ability to lie with ease and confidence coupled with being a drama king or queen, which is the type that does extremely well in the superficial atmosphere of the family court. The targeted parent usually possesses none of these qualities and consequently does not do well in family court.
The child and targeted parent suffer enormously as a result of the actions of the alienating parent that are almost always allowed to continue unchecked by courts, even when brought to their attention. This is nothing short of an amazingly confusing situation to targeted parents, as it collides "head-on" with the repeatedly chanted "best interests of the child" refrain sung by the legal community, upon which outcomes are supposed to be based. By the time the targeted parent understands that all of it is meaningless and just designed to keep him or her paying legal and counseling fees, years have passed and the alienation of the child is very well-entrenched. Only a few short years later, the child is now an adult and what to do next is nothing short of bewildering to targeted parents.
The mission of the REUNITE ALIENTED CHILDREN NETWORK is to find rapid ways to bring parents and young adult children who have been separated by parental alienation back together. Presently it is a very slow, almost accidental process where a young adult figures out what happened to him or her, and starts the process of searching the targeted parent out and healing the relationship all alone.
We want to find a way to get targeted parents and alienated children back together much faster than it presently occurs now.
We have some novel ideas to explore, along with improving public awareness of this tragic problem.
One of the first things that we want to do is put a billboard up about parental alienation and our effort.
Any contributions would be enormously appreciated. Thank you.
