Forgotten Victims & Parental Alienation Syndrome?

parental alienation

Howdy. My kids have been showing signs of parental alienation syndrome since way back before I split up with my ex. She was distorting their minds years before the split but now that the divorce is over and now that the kids are old enough to see things for themselves what effect has it all had on them? Join me for a quick delve into another topic which “they” don’t want you to talk about or think about. Important note: I am not a medical practitioner. If you believe you or your kids need psychiatric help don’t hesitate, see your GP and share your pain. Do not waste a minute worrying about the reactions of others.   What is Parental Alienation syndrome in kids? Here is a quote from Wikipedia that I believe sets the correct context for my post.

Understanding The Effects of Growing Up Without A Father

Welcome to yet one of my more inspired posts. Today the subject at hand is the effects of growing up without a father.  Whilst a lot of the primary effects should be fairly obvious the plan is to dig deeper into the secondary and tertiary effects, the ones that are not obvious. I want to split up the conversation into two sections going forward Effects on boys Effects on girls Whilst these are all complicated and interconnected topics it pays off to also respect the differences between them. If you still believe boys and girls are the same you are about 6 months of posts behind the eight ball here.   Effects on Boys Growing Up without a Father. In most cases the scenario I am contemplating here is children growing up with an absent father. It may be directly removed from their lives through restraining orders or indirectly by threats shame […]
