Are you in the awful position of not being able to wish your child a Happy Christmas?
Many of us are and so often it really isn’t the alienated parent’s fault.
It could be the family courts which the consumerwatchfoundation.com exposed earlier this year for warning victims of parental alienation that telling their child they love them can be dangerous.
We have other parents who cannot say ‘I love you’ in a birthday card … or indeed a Christmas card.
And there are some of us who simply haven’t seen their children, sometimes for decades, because they became caught up in the maelstrom of ruptured hearts and feelings as their relationship fell apart.
Having worked closely in the last year with Andrew John Teague, Sophie David and many others at D.A.D.s (Dads against double standards), the consumerwatchfoundation.com is determined to continue the fight to have parental alienation treated as a crime.
We will fight for what’s right in 2018 too. Join us!
Meanwhile, use our columns to leave a message of love for your child … tell them how you really care and how you are determined to put things right between you.
But remember, Christmas is a time for love and not hate. Please don’t attack your exes or any of the people who have power over your lives … this column is purely to say ‘I love you…’
Many parents find it so difficult to see their children that despite paying hundreds of pounds in maintenance they are also paying for supervised access. One man says this costs him EIGHTY pounds a time to spend two hours with his child.
Estranged parents – who have perhaps lost all contact because of lies that have been told about them by a bitter ex – are certainly vulnerable and to some suicide can appear to be the only way out.
NACSA, a lobbying group set up to fight the way the CSA hurt divorced people, actually published an online ‘Book of Death’ listing those who had taken their own lives because of stress and loss.
Sadly though, this type of comment appears on a daily basis on the Dad’s. Against. Double. Standards site highlighting the real despair parents without custody go through:
“Drunk and giving up on life, no point any more, never gonna see my daughter grow up into the woman she’ll become…”
“Night all hope the drink and my meds work and I don’t wake up …”
“GOD finding it really hard to put the Christmas tree up my heart is just not in it this year…”
Andrew John Teague, admin at the site, said: “There is a phenomenon the world over, parental alienation. Hundreds of thousands are denied access to a loving and meaningful relationship with both parents.”
So, let’s find a little bit of happiness at this time of year and simply say those words that matter …
