Parental Alienation Awareness Organization

You may have noticed the new blue and pink heart logo on the sidebar of my blog recently. It is the logo of the Parental Alienation Awareness Organization, the founders of Parental Alientation Awareness Day (April 25th).

On the home page is the forthright question, “Did you know parental alienation is a form of child abuse?” I am relieved with the organization’s straight-up honesty about this and refusal to sugar-coat or pretend the alienating parent has any justification for their heinous actions.

Coming up very soon, the Parental Alienation Awareness Organization (PAAO) is hosting several low-cost ($10 each) webinars with nothing needed but your Internet connection and speakers. Topics scheduled so far include Custody Battle First Aid; Legal Perspectives of Parental Alienation; and The Pathology of an Alienator. Click here for dates, times, cost information, and to register.

Even if you don’t choose to attend a webinar, the PAAO website is full of information. There are articles such as “What is parental alienation?”, including early signs of parental alienation; links to information about hostile-aggressive parenting; children’s letters and parents’ letters; reunification stories; merchandise to support the PAAO’s efforts; and ordering information for the stuffed bear Abuzz, with “Mom loves me” and “Dad loves me” embroidered on his paws. Abuzz’s role? According to the website, “Abuzz’s job is to educate the public and parents about how some adult behaviors are harmful to children. He will in effect be an extension of the child, expressing and voicing what the child can not, in order to make parents understand how they are harming their own children by their Parental Alienation behaviors.”

Parental Alienation Awareness Day is April 25th. If you would like to volunteer in your area to raise awareness of parental alienation, click here for volunteer information.

Watching the devastating effects of parental alienation attempts has made me a strong supporter of organizations like this one. Alienators hide in a court system that actually rewards and encourages their sick behavior, and the kids, as always, pay a heavy price.

    Know about PAS firsthand unfortunately. Think my 14yo stepson and 17yo stepdaughter would like this bear? 🙂 If only there was more awareness about PAS 10-15 years ago. It's too late for a lot of kids but just in time for so many more.

    Even with organizations like this, there is a long, long way to go to protect kids from parental alienation…especially when family court judges appear to be oblivious or at least disinterested. So much for “best interests of the children”. Nice catch phrase with no action to support it.

    AGGRAVATED SEXUAL ASSAULT FELON, wrist CUTTING, daily VIOLENCE, runaway teen, destruction, criminals, drug abuse (METH, COCAINE, XANAX, OXYCOTIN, etc), frequent police visits & a SEARCH WARRANT confiscated drug paraphernalia, multiple sex partners, multiple suspensions for drugs & violence, burglary, vandalism, shootings, disease, fighting, screaming, profanity, pornography (incl BEASTIALITY), boys & men sleeping over, my daughter sleeping at men’s homes, being taught obscene language & gestures, & so much more.
    Aggravated perjury, forged letters, falsified evidence, unsupported, inconsistent, & unchallenged false accusations, by the mother, CPS, et al., outweighed exhaustive undisputed facts, certified evidence, sworn statements, & objective/testable/verifiable documentation, disproving the accusations, & proving neglect & abuse by the mother.
    I paid the jury fee, & for 3 years, pleaded, in vain, for a trial or in some way, to present a case.
    Judge Suzanne Stovall punished me with over 20% plus an additional $100, monthly child support.
    With the knowledge &/or support of Dr Edward G Silverman, Lynn T Coleman, Theresa Burbank, & Elaine Baggerley, the mother has so thwarted my daughter’s education that, in Kindergarten, at 6½ years old, she is below District Guidelines.
    At 4 years old my daughter could count to 29, count to 100 by tens, write her name, recognize most letters, could tie her shoes, play checkers, had her own computer with games, play card games, & much more.
    At 6+ years old, she could do none of those, & now she requires special attention, & is a behavioral problem.
    Well known to Dr. Edward G Silverman, Lynn Coleman, & Theresa Burbank, the mother provided & reared her young children on GRAPHICALLY SEXUALLY VIOLENT entertainment & since infancy has repeatedly exposed my daughter to the same.
    Well known to Dr Edward G Silverman, Theresa Burbank, Lynn T Coleman, & several Montgomery County Courts & Juvenile Probation, the mother’s other children became violent, drug abusing criminals, who attended alternative high schools & exposed my daughter to drugs and diseases.
    On their first meeting, Elaine Baggerley of CPS began diagnosing my daughter as ADHD, & more.
    20 months of Theresa Burbank’s therapy & the mother’s sole parenting have resulted in my daughter being referred to a psychiatrist & probably psychiatric drugs.
    The mother’s family & friends have threatened me at my home & away, & my property has been vandalized.
    I have received harassing, obscene, & middle of the night phone calls.
    The well paid, well insured mother has lived rent & utilities free for 3½ years, but claims to be deep in debt from undisclosed medical expenses.
    The mother has committed tax, CHIPs, Medicaid, & insurance fraud at least since 2003.
    I have neither a history of, nor is there any evidence that I have ever been violent, destructive, abusive, hostile, etc.
    My debt exceeds twice my gross annual income & is increasing.
    Fees & expenses have exceeded 4 times my gross annual income & are increasing.
    I have recorded nearly every contact with the mother, CPS, ad litem, & many others.
    I will be appealing to the Texas: Bar, Commission on Judicial Conduct, Attorneys General, Appellate Courts, Supreme Court, Board of Examiners of Psychologists, TDFPS, etc. & will include:
    medical & doctors records of years of mistreatment
    CPS reports of violence, drugs, medical mistreatment, etc
    psychological evaluations include lying, abuse, etc
    depositions of lying, violence, drug abuse, sex, etc
    CISD records of violence, drugs, sex, etc
    police reports of violence, drugs, shootings, etc
    myspace of violence, drug abuse, sex, pornography, etc
    emails to/from the: ad litem, psychologist, therapist
    I have always loved & wanted my daughter & always will, & I will never, ever, ever give up trying to rescue her.

    The following injustice is happening right now, in Montgomery County, Texas, under our laws & in our courts.
    In July, 2009, I was massacred in a 3¼ year custody battle for my, now, 6½ year old daughter.
    Convicted child molesters have more access to their children than I do.
    Calls, letters, & gifts are intercepted, & I have no visitation.
    The mother secreted her 2 month & 14 month old babies 1200 miles from their father & for 15½ years, her family prevented all contact.
    The mother’s 18 year history & pattern of hostility, alienation, & medical mistreatment was well known to evaluating psychologist Dr Edward G Silverman, therapist Theresa Burbank, ad litem Lynn Coleman, the attorneys,
    Despite months of exams & x-rays by pediatricians & specialists, for a real & progressing condition, and prescribing increasingly invasive treatment the mother, Edward G Silverman, Theresa Burbank, Lynn Coleman, Elaine Baggerley of CPS, & Judge Suzanne Stovall, refused to believe the diagnosis of the healthcare professionals and necessity for treatment.
    Even after several of them spoke with the medical professionals, and were provided the records, they all persisted in their false beliefs despite the invalidating evidence.
    One specialist repeatedly requested the mother & ad litem, Lynn Coleman, attend the appointments but even with weeks of advance notice they refused.
    Even with the mother’s sworn statements of medically abusing/neglecting our daughter & with the doctors corroborating records of her mistreatment, Judge Suzanne Stovall took my daughter from me & placed her into the mother’s sole custody.
    Symptoms have persisted, but her condition is a secret.
    Since infancy, the mother has secreted our daughter to doctors, & medically mistreated her.
    For at least 15 months, the mother yo-yoed our daughter on steroids, and has deliberately neglected her dental care.
    The mother has a history & pattern of medically mistreating her other children with steroids, psychiatric drugs, numerous prescriptions, & OTC medicines, & they have had significant dental issues due to her neglect.
    Judge Suzanne Stovall signed a Final Decree, written to remove me from my daughter’s, life, without a trial, without my signature, without my lawyer's signature, & without compelling the mother’s (plaintiff) discovery.
    Despite 3 years of Hearings, Rule 11’s, hundreds of emails, letters, & conversations, Judge Suzanne Stovall refused to compel the mother to produce discovery, yet granted the mother years of continuances because her discovery was incomplete; including continuing a preferentially set trial.
    Everyone knew how devastating her discovery would be, but Judge Suzanne Stovall refused to compel production.
    Judge Suzanne Stovall inconsistently ruled on motions, laws, or rules to favor the mother.
    My lawyers complained that she favored the mother.
    Judge Suzanne Stovall ignored the overwhelming certified/certifiable evidence of violence, hostility, aggression, & abuse by the mother, her family, & her friends.
    Judge Suzanne Stovall disregarded over 3 years & over 300 exhibited provable charges of Contempt against the mother, including failure to pay child support, interfering with child custody, & worse.
    It required my lawyer’s written threat of a Writ of Habeas Corpus for the mother to surrender my daughter to me.
    Depositions, CISD records, sworn statements, & other Certified & Certifiable evidence revealed a home with an AGGRAVATED SEXUAL ASSAULT FELON, wrist CUTTING, daily VIOLENCE, runaway teen, destruction, criminals, drug abuse (METH, COCAINE, XANAX, OXYCOTIN, etc), frequent police visits & a SEARCH WARRANT confiscated drug paraphernalia, multiple sex partners, multiple suspensions for drugs & violence, burglary, vandalism, shootings, disease, fighting, screaming, profanity, pornography (incl BEASTIALITY)

    As alienated mother I have found that there is psychological help and a lot of literature to learn the painfull reality of alienation.
    I have concluded that what is needed is a Law that defines and punishes PARENTAL ALIENATION. I urge you to make it happen by going to the internet and look for United States SENATE. Then look for the two (2) Senators in your State. In their contact page look at their and send them both a request to SPONSOR address A BILL TO SIGN INTO LAW DEFINITION AND PUNISHMENT OF PARENTAL ALIENATION. Ask them to replay to your request. If they can not sponsor the bill ask why can't they sponsor the Bill.
    Then phone their Washington office and request the same TO SPONSOR A BILL TO SIGN INTO LAW DEFINITION AND PUNISHMENT OF PARENTAL ALIENATION.
    Please ask everybody and anybody to do the same because this is the way that an idea turns into law in USA.
    There are only 100 Senators in USA please send the same request to all of them, make it a chain mail, turn it viral. Some Senators in the social media, chase them there with the same request.

    Above anything else remember to be polite, we need their cooperation not the same treatment that we got from corrupt lawyer or ignorante judges.
    Star right now, don't wait

    Anonymous, I am an alienated mother myself and have been fighting a grueling court battle for almost four years. My son is a wonderful child and while he is not fully alienated yet, he is at the very least growing up to think that this begavior by his father and stepmother is what is the “norm”. I present proof after proof after proof, letters from teachers etc. and the judge ignores me primarily because I am a pro se litigant and cannot afford a lawyer. Have you found any websites that would give case law as to prevailing parental alienation cases?

Don't be shy! Tell me how great I am. Or not. Share your feelings with the group.
