“Bubbles of Love”
Saturday, April 25, 2015 at Noon
Parental Alienation Awareness Day
Sponsored by the Canadian Centre for Men and Families Vancouver BranchApril is Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month; a time to emphasize that our children are innocent and deserve the leadership of the adults (parents, leaders, community) around them to ensure their health, wellness and safety.Show your support for children by taking 10 minutes out of your day at noon on April 25th to blow bubbles for love.

We encourage anyone to participate: mayor’s office, court house, churches, businesses, daycare centers, schools, etc. Anywhere people are present. You may also choose to decorate trees with blue ribbons at the local park or along the main street in your city to remind everyone of the precious nature of childhood and the responsibility to protect our children. Children should be encouraged to freely love each of their two parents regardless of their parents’ marital status.

Take photos of your event and activities and send us a copy so we can include it in our 2015 Parental Alienation Awareness Day video clip that will be provided to the Premier.

Here’s a clip of our successful flag raising event in Toronto in 2012:

Why Have an Awareness Day? www.paawarenessday.com/whyawareness.asp

If more people knew about how Parental Alienation and Hostile Aggressive parenting works, and how damaging these behaviors are to children, then more people can help deal with the problem.

With awareness and education will come social change. Just as now one can’t slap a child, or smoke while pregnant, without everyone knowing that is not acceptable behavior, when social change happens, parents behaving in parental alienation or hostile aggressive parenting behaviors will be recognized. These adults will understand how their behavior hurts their own children, and if they choose to do it regardless, they will not be able to get away with their behavior as easily as today.

There are many professionals such as judges, lawyers, psychiatrists, teachers, police officers, as well the general public that have no idea this problem exists, or if they do, don’t realize the harm it does. The aim of the Awareness Day is to make everyone aware of these problems and encourage the alienating, hostile aggressive parents to seek help.

With awareness comes education, and with education, comes the power to stop the mental and emotional abuse of children.Sarvy Emo
