staying strong as an alienated parent

Staying Strong – Alienated Parent

Staying Strong as an alienated parent – what does that really mean? It is said that storms don’t last forever.  Living as an alienated parent can be likened to a storm.  Often the child (in my case the adolescent) isn’t even aware of what is playing out in the rejected parent’s world.  The rejected parent often has no idea how this is impacting their child because there is very little to no contact.  Staying strong is very important because the pain of being alienated can be all-consuming.  Some days it does consume me but to outsiders looking in, they wouldn’t be able to tell that […]

Alienated Mom – Never Give Up!

Never Give Up! I know I should Never Give Up!  I feel like I am at a stale mate.  I haven’t heard a word from my daughter for over a month.  As I woke this morning, the first thing I read was a precedent setting court case that happened in Canada just in the past few days.  It gave me hope to believe that some judges can get things right and help a parent to reunify with their child.  Unfortunately, I do not have the money to fight for my child – like many of us – spending thousands of […]
