Parental Alienation Psychological Impact on Children
When we think of Parental Alienation we immediately think of the immediate parents and not the children or siblings to the alienation. As parents, all we try to do is protect the siblings with excuses after excuses as we try to protect them from the psychological effects of losing their sibling.
Sometimes we underestimate the extent of damage cause suddenly when a child is separated from a parent or sibling. While surfing online I found a video I wanted you to see from some researches in the US on the effects of a child being separated from a parent.
Inside the Brains of Children Separated from Parents
From the above video, you can see the effects of a child being separated from a parent has on them. Every day a child is separated from a parent for one reason or another but is it a justified reason or is it orchestrated by a spiteful bitter person. A person who cannot see past their own anger then rather see their child happy with both parents in their lives. Can someone’s anger be so much more important than your child’s mental health and well-being?
A child does not ask to be brought into the world that decision is made by two loving parents at the time and regardless of their personal situation that love should always remain with the child and child’s best interest. Then the poor child is dragged through a system of courts and government agencies that cause more stress and strain by the parents, which in some cases do not have a choice.
If one of the parents decides to move away or disappear with the child to spite the other person, why are they not pursued by the government agencies whereby enforcing contact with the bitter spiteful alienator. Why is it so easy to rip a child from a loving home with siblings and grandparents because one side of the family is upset with the other. The law should be onside of the child and the alienated parent to make sure the long-term effects of another person’s actions do not psychologically damage the child and alienated parent.
To sum up what it feels like as an alienated parent who loses a child that is alive is a constant sense of grief! You grieve every day, you feel hollow and that you are just a shell of a person that is waiting to feel complete. Sleepless nights and stress that feels like your head is going to explode with no escape.
Summed up nicely in this quote
“I’d thought those memories would be the ones I always cherished, but as the days and years passed by, those beautiful memories became my pain.”
I just wanted to end this post with a video of how children feel when they are alienated from a parent.
Since our government changed hands from Labour to Conservatives I have noticed a massive change in, we will do what we want when we want and thank you for the votes! I thought we live in a democratic society whereby the people that voted you in in the first place will actually get your support. Not the thanks for voting us in, we will now do the opposite to everything we said we were which got us voted in!
I am a Labour voter myself and have been most of my life but it seems to me that we are voting in a bunch of hypocrites. The politicians have clearly lost focus, they spend so much time squabbling in the House of Commons like children in a playground. When you get elected to be the winning party you are supposed to help society make things better and your sole focus should not be money but also the well-being of society. I have seen since the Tories have come into power a devastated UK, which is having a massive impact on people’s health but it feels like no one cares.
It’s got to the point where people are taking their own lives as they believe dying is better than living with the current government and situation they are in. We have serious societal issues that are being ignored and we seem to just be putting up with it and accepting it. Remember we can vote in and vote out who we like and we can protest to make changes as and when. So, why are we allowing our public services, families and mental health to deteriorate at such a repaid rate?
We are talking about Human Rights violations around the world but yet we violate them ourselves on a daily basis. We talk about food poverty around the world yet we have the highest number of food banks and poverty than ever before. We talk about equal rights around the world yet we still continue with inequality. People are dying daily from knife crime, no medical attention, suicide, homelessness, food poverty, pollution and the list goes on. Our government agencies are at breaking point to the point they can’t conduct proper investigations and make the appropriate decisions where necessary.
Families are suffering and it breaks my heart this is not how it was supposed to be when you elect a new government. All our MP’s seem to be focused on their own agendas and not the agendas of the people that voted them in in the first place. So what is the point of having a government that does not listen or support the people that voted them in? If you look at it there is not point, we could have an electronic voting system that allows people to vote on new laws and priorities within society. As having MP’s is not actually doing anything for people, families and public services and we need to wake up before it gets worse.
You have the power so start thinking about taking it back before it is too late otherwise it might be your family, neighbour, friend or acquaintance maybe next. Change is needed and it needs to be now as we have a massive failing government whose priorities are clearly in the wrong place.
@FathersCountToo I know there is something fundamentally wrong here. The same thing is happening all over the world with female paedophiles and males one get treated differently! They are both committing the same offences so why are they not treated equally!
