MP slams separated parents who seek to ‘psychologically harm’ children

Separated parents who seek to discredit each other in the eyes of their child are effectively committing child abuse, MPs have heard

 

Mr Danczuk told MPs in Westminster Hall: “It’s often the dad rather than the mother if we’re honest about this issue.

“I think perhaps we have to look at changes in legislation to be able to make access for fathers, when a separation has occurred, easier and more simple.

“The other important point that hasn’t really been mentioned yet is that around parental alienation.

“I think it’s particularly important where one parent or indeed both parents, when there’s been a separation, psychologically harm the child and it is effectively child abuse by convincing the child that the other parent is not doing a good job or doesn’t love them, or something like that.

“I think it’s something that really does warrant further debate and examination in this House but also in society wider.”
