Parental Alienation and social media

Parental Alienation and the world of social media . . . can be both positive and negative but mostly negative.  Of course, I have experienced both. I am “Friends” with my daughter on Facebook – if you can call it “Friends”.  I remained friends on Facebook because was one of the few ways I could get some insight into my daughter’s life away from me.  I get no updates from her Father on anything – in fact the only contact I have with him is about money.  For an alienated parent like myself just seeing a photo of my daughter or seeing […]

Parental Alienation – when professionals miss the mark #1

Parental Alienation comes with a gamut of issues in both the mental health field and legal field.

Alienation – Enter the Stepmother

On March 11th, 2015, I received a letter from my daughter stating that she was going to live with her Dad.  Nine days later – on March 20th, 2015 […]
