Parental Alienation Syndrome: Real vs Misguided Use

Parental Alienation is something very real to many mothers and fathers who have been wrongfully cut off from their children.  We say “wrongfully” because the facts and evidence of the case did not support that loss.

The word “syndrome” was added for another purpose, however.  And this is where it gets difficult for many.

In family court when there is REAL abuse happening, and the perpetrator has the ability to influence the judge with special connections and money, they may refer to this “syndrome” or some other term (again, something that makes no sense if you look at the evidence) to justify punishing a good parent, and taking away a child.

This video helps explain some of what we are seeing in custody disputes where the evidence of abuse has been substantiated.  This includes the Fulton county case we have been following and reporting on.
