FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Kenneth Paschal
ALABAMA GOVERNOR ROBERT BENTLEY AND PRATTVILLE MAYOR GILLESPIE, PROCLAIM APRIL 22 – 28, 2012 AS PARENTAL ALIENATION PREVENTION WEEK AND APRIL 25, 2012 AS PARENTAL ALIENATION AWARENESS DAY.
On April 25, 2012, at noon, ALFRA requests you take 10 minutes to blow Bubbles for Love in support of Parental Alienation Awareness in an effort to educate and end of this form of child abuse.
Parental Alienation is recognized as the "systematic" brainwashing of children with the sole purpose of destroying a loving relationship with a parent. It deprives children of their right to love and be loved by both parents. Robin Denison, co-founder of Parental Alienation Awareness Organization (PAAO), likens the pain of the left behind parent to "bereavement without end." Co-founder, Sarvy Emo, states that, "Parental Alienation is a severe form of emotional child abuse." With awareness, come education and understanding, and the power to stop the abuse of innocent children caught in the crossfire of the people they love.
The Alabama Family Rights Association (ALFRA) works to increase awareness of Parental Alienation as a common form of child abuse. Parental Alienation can arise from divorce, child custody situations and even with intact families. Parental Alienation is evidenced by the alienating behaviors of a person, such as a parent, family members, or as a result of the judicial system restricting the relationship between a child and a loving parent. Alienation can severely damage or destroy a child's relationship with a parent. The most common symptom of children affected by Parental Alienation is their severe opposition to contact with one parent and/or overt hatred towards that parent for little or no reason.
ALFRA works to change Alabama Child Custody Laws with the belief that, Children Need Each of Their Two Fit Parents... ALFRA educates attorneys, judges and others to safeguarding Alabama Children and fit Parents Fundamental Rights as clearly safeguarded by the U.S. Constitution. Children, mothers and fathers have a right to freedom of Association which is benefiting to children with both parents active in their lives.
