Telling Kids the Truth: Is It Fighting Against Parental Alienation or Just ‘Petty’?

Always tell the truth. Never lie. That commandment was drummed into my siblings and I by our parents, our vicar, our teachers.

So I was supportive when my husband, Rhys, told his long-alienated adult children that, contrary to their mother's claims, he had indeed been paying child support all along. They seemed pleased to know that Da cared whether they starved or not. In fact, their mouths dropped open in shock when they heard how many hundreds of thousands of pounds their mother had received and disappeared, dressing them in outgrown rags, feeding them the cheapest macaroni and chips.

New Website Empowers Alienated Mums and Dads to Connect With their Kids

'What about alienated mums?'

I hear that a lot. 'Mums are alienated too!' Now a new site gives alienated mums a way to reach out to their alienated children.

Founded by Anton Hooton, an alienated parent himself, Parents Missing Their Kids is a free website for mums and dads to post a loving message, their picture and their contact information in the hopes their alienated children will find them and choose to return to their parent's loving arms.

That my belly would never swell with a new little life growing inside. Being a mother was an assumption I never questioned so my baby fever was agonising and, to this day, my husband Rhys and I still don't know why we can't conceive.
