Parental alienation is an important issue to Attorney Jordan E. Trager. As a result, he is a leader of the Parental Alienation Awareness Organization’s local chapter in New York City. Trager conducts and supervises monthly meetings to assist members of the local community who are affected by this serious concern.
What Is Parental Alienation?
When a mother or father behaves in a way that intentionally damages the relationship between the child and the other parent, they are demonstrating parental alienation. This kind of behavior can cause parental alienation syndrome in the child, which is exhibited when a child opposes contact with one parent or evidently hates them for no logical reason.
Sometimes, the alienating parent will make false allegations of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, but other times the brainwashing and manipulation is more subtle. The parent who is being alienated will be cut off from their child, physically and emotionally, for no discernable reason.
This situation is common during contentious divorces and can be exacerbated by court orders, but in every case, the true victim is the child.
If they want what’s best for their child, neither parent has a right to interfere with what would otherwise be a warm and loving parent-child bond.
PAAO was founded to provide support for anyone experiencing parental alienation. The organization educates the community on hostile or aggressive parenting strategies and their negative, long-term consequences for children. In addition, victims of parental alienation can commiserate, discuss solutions, and support one another during this difficult time.
Parental alienation is considered mental and emotional child abuse by members of POAA. Through awareness and community, we hope to put a stop to this inappropriate and harmful behavior and protect the best interests of our children.
