Welcome to our first March issue.
In this issue, we are highlighting the Parliamentary debate which was held on Monday 8th March, paying particular attention to the amendment proposed by Baroness Meyer which addresses the damaging effects of parental alienation. We are also inviting those of you who have had experience in family court to complete a Channel 4 Dispatches Survey and promoting a Workshop where we will be discussing the realities of contested child arrangements, with the long timescales involved as well as inappropriate alienating behaviours.
Finally, we are reproposing our guidance "What is Shared Parenting and Why is it Best?" under a new downloadable pdf format.
Sunday is going to be Mothers’ Day and we would like to send a message to all the dads and mums reminding them of the indispensable and irreplaceable parenting role of mothers in child welfare:
“Dads, where possible, acknowledge mothers and their contribution to your children ensuring that your children get the message that mum is important and valued by you. Never forget, you separated from your ex – your children did not separate from either of you. Working together not only lightens the burden, but is also good for the children. Children need the best blend of both parents in their lives, whether they live together or not, unless there are contrary reasons. The children should see their roles as comparable and they should be able to be close or very close to both. The best parents are both!”
Thank you for your support and Happy Mothers’ Day!
With best wishes
