The Gregory Mantell Show: When divorce turns nasty and one parent tries to turn the kids against the other. Dr. Jayne Major, police officer Catherine MacWillie, and film director Shelli Ryan discuss parental alienation syndrome.
PAS features an obsessed parent who will make false claims/accusations of abuse against another parent, placing the child as the ultimate prize.
Although this show features PAS as a divorce-issue, is adoption not a formal divorce from an entire family? How many adoptees have been told they were not wanted or abused by their first-parents? How many adoptees felt like they had to choose the "good" parent over the "bad" parent?
How many adoptive parents exhibit PAS behavior, and how many children are growing-up with a warped sense of parental-love?
