NATIONAL PARENTS ORGANIZATION OBSERVES PARENTAL ALIENATION AWARENESS DAY

LEGISLATION IN NEARLY 20 STATES SUPPORTS SHARED PARENTING AND PARENTAL EQUALITY

BOSTON -- As Parental Alienation Awareness Day nears – Saturday, April 25, 2015 – National Parents Organization emphasizes that while our nation’s family courts continue to marginalize one of the parents following divorce or separation, the organization is encouraged by the fact that lawmakers in about 20 states are working to support shared parenting and parental equality in child custody cases.

“Winner-take-all custody battles are unnecessary, since shared parenting works best for children in most cases. Worse, custody battles often create permanent hostility between parents that can then turn into ‘parental alienation,’ a common situation in which one parent alienates the child from the other parent,” said Robert Franklin, Esq., who serves on National Parents Organization’s Board of Directors. “The most powerful way to prevent parental alienation is to have shared parenting from the first day parents separate. It’s very hard to alienate a child from a parent whose loving care the child experiences frequently. Unfortunately, it’s not hard to alienate a young child from a parent they rarely get to see. I’m encouraged by the current, nationwide family court reform effort to move away from parental alienation and towards parental equality.”
