Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, West Virginia, and Maryland Declare April 25th Parental Alienation Awareness Day

Sixteen States Now Proclaim or Recognize Parental Alienation Awareness Day

MIAMI, April 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Parental Alienation Awareness advocates would like to thank Governor Bob Riley of Alabama, Governor Mike Beebe of Arkansas, Governor Sonny Perdue of Georgia, Governor Haley Barbour of Mississippi, Governor Joe Manchin III of West Virginia, and Governor Martin O'Malley of Maryland for their proclamations declaring April 25th as Parental Alienation Awareness Day.

This brings the list to 16 states that have either declared or recognized April 25th as Parental Alienation Awareness Day since the Governors' campaign began in 2006.

Parental Alienation involves a series of behaviors, which may be either subtle or overt, that can effectively alienate a child from a parent. These behaviors are often seen in the context of divorce or custody cases, and are consistently done by a third party, such as a parent or extended family member.

These behaviors can include speaking negatively about a parent to, or in front of, a child, interfering with communication and visitation, and sharing inappropriate information with them, such as details of the marriage, divorce, or court proceedings.

More severe behaviors may take the form of lying to the child about the other parent, or telling the child the other parent doesn't love them.

Parental Alienation behaviors take advantage of the suggestibility and dependency of children, out of anger, revenge, or ignorance, and research has shown children exposed to such behaviors for extended periods may suffer from depression, low self-esteem, and difficulty with their own relationships.

Parental Alienation behaviors can effectively remove a child from the family, the heritage, and the support of the targeted parent.

In effect, the child has lost a loving parent, but is given no permission to grieve.

Alienating behaviors, under the term Parental Alienation, must be recognized, understood, and addressed to allow a child to love and be loved by both parents, regardless of the parents' relationship to each other.

Parental Alienation Awareness Advocate Robin Denison said, "We laud the commitment of the above governors to the well-being of children and families, and we urge all of our governors, legislators, mental health and legal professionals, courts, educators, and the general public to learn more about Parental Alienation."
