Hello! Daily Telegraph today writing about PARENTAL ALIENATION, more about my father: “I was three years old when my father left… Every birthday I hoped he would send a card. Neither a card, a letter or phone call arrived. The first word I learnt to say after ‘mummy’ was ‘why’… I worked far too hard and found a magic escape in alcohol. For years I ran. I did not let myself feel my feelings. I was a shadow of a human being going through the motions every day. When the waves caught up with me many years later when the Band-Aids of promotions, glittering salaries and star-studded after parties all fell off, I crashed into a crumpled heap. Now I’m sober, someone asked me a few years ago, “Do you know why you drank?” I did not know then – but I know now. Through my whole entire life, I was allowed to believe that I was unlovable. The person who created me chose to walk away… When he replied, I learned that he had tried to contact me… Once again I find myself shaking as I try to finish this column. Christmas is coming: there are alienated parents desperate to see their children - uncles, aunts, grandparents who would love to give their related little ones a hug and tell them they love them. Children are not weapons. Please re-read the decades of torture above that can result in children growing up believing they are unlovable.” #parentalalienation www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/opinion/i-lived-40-years-thinking-my-father-didnt-love-me-and-it-w......
Want to join me in supporting a good cause? This #GivingTuesday I'm raising money for The Fathers' Rights Movement and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. And on Giving Tuesday Nov 27, Facebook and PayPal will match a total of $7 Million in donations. Thank you for your support. I've included information about The Fathers' Rights Movement below.
The Fathers’ Rights Movement is a movement whose members, both men & women, are primarily interested in issues related to family law and child custody.
As a collective movement, we are passionate about empowering fathers to stand up for their rights and to educate the public and family court system about the importance of fathers in society, as well as bring greater awareness to the imbalance and injustice that effects the rights of fathers.
Everyday, fathers are losing their rights and contact with their children due to outdated biases that diminishes the role and influence of a father. We are here in support of fellow fathers and families that suffer from this injustice, to share your stories, to connect you with the proper resources to overcome your blocks, and to inspire our society to address the issues in our family court system that is hindering child development and damaging the family unit.
We aim to collect valuable, helpful resources and tools that will further enable fathers to regain and retain their rights, as well as gather any available data and research that offers greater insight into the importance of fathers and the effect of father-absent homes.
Our mission includes bringing the community of fathers together as a unified social force aimed at restoring society’s ideals of the father and strengthening the connection each father has to their children.
Thank you to all of our supporters! None of this is possible without you! We appreciate everything you guys do for us and all the kind words you’ve shared!
