Help our US friends commemorate International Parental Alienation Awaremness Day - April

The loss of a loving parent-child relationship is painful and destructive to everyone.

Parental Alienation behaviors are behaviors done by a 3rd party, which interfere with the normal parent-child relationship.  These behaviors may be done by the other parent, extended family, courts, or social services. They may include such behaviors as speaking negatively to or about a parent in front of the child, interfering with communication and visitation, and sharing inappropriate information with the child.

We advocate awareness of such behaviors, and the right of every child to love and be loved by both parents.

To accomplish this and bring to attention those who have it within their power to make positive changes, we must be NOTICED.

Parental Alienation Awareness Day, April 25th, is coming up soon. This year, we are asking for international participation in planning some sort of event to commemorate April 25th. We are asking individuals and organizations to help us commemorate this day and provide awareness of Parental Alienation and Hostile Aggressive Parenting.  If you are planning an event for April 25th, local or international, please share with us via the website at

Last year, there were webinars, media events, quiltmakings, programs, flyer distributions, and letter writing campaigns to the United Nations Human Rights Commission, as well as  to local, state, and national legislators, human rights organizations, and government officials.  Many of these letters bore the face of a parent, or a child victim of parental alienation, or contained a stamp with their photos: ,

In the States, we are organizing 2 events-A Governors campaign in the hopes that governors will issue a Petition declaring April 25th as Parental Alienation Awareness Day on a state-wide level, and a conference featuring renowned author, researcher, and speaker, Dr. Stephen Ceci.  Dr. Ceci will be joined by numerous other prominent professionals in the fields of child abuse, parental abductions, false sexual allegations, and Parental Alienation.
