Parental Alienation Awareness Day
Parental Alienation Awareness Day takes place on April 25, 2017. Parental Alienation Awareness Day is part of a global awareness campaign to raise awareness about parental alienation.
Parental alienation is a social dynamic, generally occurring due to divorce or separation, when a child expresses unjustified hatred or unreasonably strong dislike of one parent, making access by the rejected parent difficult or impossible. These feelings may be influenced by negative comments by the other parent and by other characteristics, such as lack of empathy and warmth, of the rejected parent.
