STOP Parental Alienation Syndrome before It Gets a Chance to START - Parenting Ideas:

Equal Custody Proponents Cite Anti-Male Bias

Victims of parental alienation, and equal custody advocates rode the CRISPE bus (Childrens Rights Initiative for Sharing Parents Equally) from southern California to Sacramento yesterday, to attend “A Day With California Legislators.” They say they were wrong when they thought they’d have a chance to tell their legislators the truth about family law from their perspective. “There were four women talking, that’s all.
