Good People & People of Faith,

          A lot of activity in the past week (full details below).   
Looking forward to meeting the staff's of Senators Schumer & Gillibrand 
this Thursday.  We have parents coming from as far as Toronto to attend 
and discuss fundamental human rights. We should always remind ourselves 
that *Courts & Governments do not create basic rights* -- They 
'recognize & protect' what already exists.

          Many of you were familiar with the documentary, "Support? 
System Down."  The Producers have invested more in the film. It's been 
completely recut & retitled.  "Romeo Missed a Payment" is premiering 
this week in New York City & London.   I'll be at the New York showing 
Saturday (Dec 14) and hope to meet some of you there.   I  highly 
recommend the film for those who have friends & relatives who don't 
understand what you went through.  It helps people realize how 
dysfunctional the system is.

On our Petition supporting "The Declaration of Family Rights 

*From*: F. Christensen <fchriste at>
I support the basic idea behind the petition, but could not support its 
present wording--there are too many ways to seriously harm and even kill 
children without malintent, and I find the phrase 'intentional threat' 
dangerously ambiguous (a person may intentionally perform an action 
without realizing that it threatens the safety or life of the child). 
"Child Protective Services" has far too much power and discretion to 
abuse it, but the case must be made with exceptional care.

All best wishes,
Prof. C.
/REPLY:  I recall an actual incident in a small town where I lived.  A 
parent took their two teenage kids water skiing -- he did not have them 
wearing life vests (state law).   He was moving his boat to pick up his 
daughter from the water after a run was completed.  The hull hit her 
head, knocked her unconscious, and she drown.   Now what?

In this specific case, "they investigated", nothing happened (he was 
well a well known lawyer in the community) -- but what should have 
happened?  What do you think? My thoughts:

He broke the law,  if there is jail time or a fine for him, it should be 
enforced.  I imagine he could be tried & jailed for 'involuntary 
manslaughter'. But there was no 'malintent' - no disruption to the 
relationship with the other child....

One important point, this standard applies only to both parents -- not 
other people who interact with children. Your thoughts?/
I guess I should have made my point more explicit. Alas, there are huge 
numbers of parents who, through no fault of their own (congenital 
defect, brain injury or similar trauma, etc.) lack the intelligence or 
emotional ability (there is a long list of personality disorders, as 
well as cognitive disorders like schizophrenia) to look after 
themselves, let alone look after a helpless child. Your intent is good, 
but I swear your wording needs to be changed to take account of the 
complexities of life.

Warmest wishes,


        Meeting with staff of US Senators Schumer & Gillibrand

        Visiting Schumer - Members of Parental Alienation
        Awareness Organization (PAAwareness.Org

On our visit to the offices of our Members of Congress, we'll be joined 
by a few members of PAAO.  "Alienation" is one of the worst results of 
our current Family Law culture. Below is from Robert Samery, feel free 
to contact him for more info 
on the group.

Parental Alienation Organization (PAAO) was formed in 2006 by Sarvy Emo, 
a parent of 2 with a fully functional equal parenting plan. She became 
very concerned with what she saw happening to her boyfriends children 
through what she came to know as parental alienation. As a result she 
formed PAAO with the mandate to bring awareness of what at the time was 
a little known and not well understood form of emotional harm inflicted 
on children caught in high conflict parenting situations.

Through her dedicated determination to eradicate parental alienation, 
PAAO has educated hundreds of thousands of children, parents, mental 
health and family law professionals about the behaviours, results and 
remedies of this form of emotional harm to children. PAAO produces 
webinars, seminar, and workshops, appears at professional conferences 
and is the source of Parental Alienation Awareness Day, and the Bubbles 
of Love campaign both commemorated each year on April 25.

Robert came to be involved with PAAO through his first hand experiences 
with alienating behaviours. His 3 children’s relationship with him was 
seriously harmed and severed. His perspective on shared equal parenting 
is that such a presumption would be a critical step to avoiding the 
conflict that a single party could impose in the battle to gain sole 
custody and access. When fueled by the potential of “winning it all” or 
“losing it all” in the context of sole custody, an emotionally unstable 
or at times normal range parent will see an attack to their character 
through the loss or potential loss of their ability to parent and become 
highly combative. In extreme cases kidnapping or killing the prize plays 
is the out in order to avoid seeing themselves as being the abandoned 

Equal shared parenting is a major presumptive in the battle against 
parental alienation along with therapy and general education.
