Today is parental alienation awareness day in Parry Sound. At their last meeting, council proclaimed April 25th as Parental Alienation Awareness Day. Parental alienation is often found in high conflict separations, divorces and custody disputes, and takes advantage of the dependency and responsibility of a child. Medical professionals agree the problem of parental alienation exists and can cause mental and emotional harm to a child and can affect them as adults with tragic consequences. With awareness, parents can be educated to act in their child’s best interest, and gain education, understanding, and knowledge to prevent the abuse of the innocent victims involved in high conflict separations.
