When parents separate and divorce, kids come last in family law. Should children's welfare be measured in "billable hours"? Christine Giancarlo thinks kids come first and need both parents. Parentectomy moves us toward that goal... for the sake of the children.
Based on Dr. Giancarlo's peer-reviewed research study, Kids Come Last: The Effect of Family Law Involvement in Parental Alienation, this book tells, in their own voices, the stories of thirty loving, capable and dependable parents who, nonetheless, were removed from their children's lives. It is also the author's own journey through the devastation caused by parental alienation.
This book sheds light on an urgent social crisis, enabled by a broken family law system. An equitable and just model for eliminating this form of child abuse is proposed with an urgent plea for its implementation.

Goo morning, bloggers! Thanks for stopping by to check out my book. I'll be happy to respond to comments and questions throughout today. The widespread, social crisis of parental alienation affects families everywhere and is largely responsible for some of the mental health struggles facing young people.ReplyDelete
I liked the excerpt.ReplyDelete
The diverticulitis of the mind is the twisting of reality created by false information consistently given the child by its alienating parent. Since the capable, mentally-healthy, loving parent has been/is being removed by the alienator, the child lacks balance to develop his/her/their perspective of reality.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a good book.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Sherry. The thirty cases of parental alienation in Parentectomy are the result of face to face interviews I had with each targeted parent. Each was verifed by court documents prior to the interview during my screening for authenticity. The interviews were often several hours long and gut-wrenching to say the least. Each parent desperately missed his or her children and had only pursued legal intervention as a last resort.ReplyDelete
Thank you everyone for your interest and comments about Parentectomy. I hope my book provides information and support for those of you, and yours, targeted by parental alienation. Happy reading and blogging!ReplyDelete
