Parental Alienation

On Behalf of | May 18, 2017 | Child Custody

Erasing Family is an International film, currently in production as a follow-up to the influential documentary, Erasing Dads. The original movie helped to expose a significant problem in Argentina, that of fathers being erased from the lives of their children by the court system.

Unfortunately, that is not the extent of the issue. Parental alienation is happening to more than just fathers and in many countries across the world including the US.  Mothers, fathers, siblings, grandparents and other family members have been alienated from their families. Children have been forced to grow up without parents and/or had to endure the pain of listening to the custodial parent or family member say terrible things about a loved one, generally preventing them from not only seeing, but loving that family member.

You can view the film’s website and learn more about this growing problem here  More than 40 years of research on children who have grown up in different divorced situations is now exposing the harm that parental alienation can cause.
