We haven't even released our official evidence based proposal that goes into much more detail regarding our argument for total reform. We haven't even released … Continue reading Professionals in Family Law wanted…
One of the numerous parents that we support, recently forwarded to us an email he had received from Cafcass. An anonymised copy of the email has been included in this post. However before we take a look at the email, we would like to put the email into the context of the case. We will refer … Continue reading This is why we need ‘Total Reform’
Social change only occurs when fought for and pushed forward by those individuals that are affected by the need for reform. There is an undeniable need for reform regarding the injustice that is parental alienation. The government bodies and services that allow parental alienation to go unchallenged need to be held accountable for their lack … Continue reading Fighting for Total Reform Together
On Saturday 22nd September I had the pleasure of being one of the public speakers at an event called The Dad Takeover. The event took place in London. It was organised by Priscilla Appeaning. Priscilla is the founder of The Step Mums Club. "I set up this initiative to debunk the ‘wicked stepmum’ stereotype and … Continue reading The Dad Take Over
Louise Tickle’s second blogpost of her Open Family Court project. Thanks Louise for raising awareness of the issues that are caused by an overly private Family.
It’s over a month since I published my first Open Family Court blogpost, so this is an opportunity for me to say a huge thank you to everyone who emailed in response saying you’d like to hear more and get involved.
A quick recap on the purpose of this project as I expressed it in that blog:
“[It’s planned] as a collaborative exploration of how to recalibrate the balance between privacy in family courts – which exists for the very good reason of protecting vulnerable children – and freedom of expression, which allows people to speak out publicly about what the state has done to them, a right currently hobbled by the Administration of Justice Act 1960.”
Reasons for being open
Interestingly, just last week, The Guardian published an editorial advocating greater openness in the family court.
The paper’s leader writer set the need for greater transparency and scrutiny squarely…

Another thought provoking piece from ‘lost dad’. Glad to see ‘lost dad’ back, well and writing once again.
Why is parental alienation not more widely known? why does it still exist after so many years, and more importantly, why isn’t anything happening to stop it?
Let’s take a somewhat different example that can be seen in every newspaper these days: Transgender discussions. Without going into any of the detail in the different arguments, or groups involved, let’s just take a figure: The UK assume that the number of transgenders in the population is around 0.1%, the United States says it is around 0.3%. Taking the figure to mean the entire population of the United Kingdom, that means that there are around 68,000 transgenders in the UK.
Why I am mentioning this? Because this is the number at any one time. How many do you think are suffering from parental alienation at any one time? Children, absent parents, grandparents, etc. Given that in 2012 according to the office of national…

Regarding the raising of awareness of parental alienation I believe change is on the horizon. I am not naive enough to believe it will happen overnight. However, very much like the general public's past lack of understanding of mental health, parental alienation is now starting on that same journey. Last week parental alienation was reported … Continue reading Parental Alienation; is change on the horizon?
What I mean by the above title is that twenty or so years ago mental health was simply not discussed in the public domain the way it is now. Be it via television reports, shows, documentaries or social media, mental health is now discussed and reported on across numerous mediums in a much more positive … Continue reading Is ‘Parental Alienation’ the New ‘Mental Health?’
Anyone that is aware of parental alienation will know, there are an incalculable number of alienated parents, grand-parents, step-parents etc. out there. As alienated individuals we are to some degree either victims or survivors of parental alienation. However the real victims are not us. It is tragically the alienated children out there. Across the globe … Continue reading The Times They Are a Changin’
The following is an anonymous contribution from a very courageous alienated parent. I used to have two boys in my life. Now i have just one. And the one I have left is my best friend.
