I was saddened recently having a conversation with my grandson to discover that he never knew that my side of the family was so vast.
He had never been told that he had Great Aunts and Uncles who had 8 children between them. Many relatives who many have no sadly passed away. Lots of extended family who would have been part of his life if they had been allowed.
Alienators cause so much damage and destruction within families, it goes way beyond parents and grandparents and continues throughout the generations.
I speak to many alienated children through my therapy services and they all say the same. They grow up confused about what is real. They listen to conflicting stories from both parents and grandparents. Their minds are mixed up, some of the older ones are getting help and trying to work out truth from lies for themselves.
It makes them not trust anyone, they are anxious, they are unsure of themselves.
No child should have to go through this, the children are the innocent party.
WHO HAS THE RIGHT TO MESS WITH A CHILDS MIND?
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child Article 9 (separation from parents) states that
- Children must not be separated from their parents against their will unless it is in their best interests (for example, if a parent is hurting or neglecting a child).
- Children whose parents have separated have the right to stay in contact with both parents, unless this could cause them harm.
