I have met and heard the tragic stories of many parents. PA is a function, by and large, of a custodial ex-partner, although some alienation can start while the couple is still together.

This blog is a story of experiences and observations of dysfunctional Family Law (FLAW), an arena pitting parent against parent, with children as the prize. Due to the gender bias in Family Law, that I have observed, this Blog has evolved from a focus solely on PA to one of the broader Family/Children's Rights area and the impact of Feminist mythology on Canadian Jurisprudence and the Divorce Industry.

Not All Dads Are Deadbeats presents a "Parental Alienation Symposium"

Tuesday September 15, 2009 - 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm Wolf Performance Hall, located inside the Central Library
Join renowned Toronto Family Lawyer Gene Colman, author and nurse Molly Murphy, and founder and past president of the Parental Alienation Awareness Organization Sarvy Emo, for a presentation on the issue of Parental Alienation.
Parental Alienation is a social dynamic, generally occurring due to divorce or separation, when a child expresses unjustified hatred or an unreasonably strong dislike of one parent, making access by the rejected parent difficult or impossible. These feelings may be influenced by negative comments by the alienating parent, as well as by the child's inability to benefit from the empathy and warmth that the alienated parent would otherwise be able to share with him/her.
Tuesday September 15, 2009 - 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
Wolf Performance Hall, located inside the Central Library
Cost: $10/ticket (special rates available if required)
Additional tickets may be purchased at the door, subject to availability (seating capacity: 369).
Not Alll Dads Are Deadbeats is an independent and non-profit children's rights organization based in London, Ontario, Canada. We believe that, at separation or divorce, maximum contact with both parents is in the best interests of the children, except in proven cases of abuse or neglect.
