The Look of Love
There are so many parents across country at this very moment in the midst of high conflict divorce, finding it difficult to pay legal bills, be nurturing to their children, and continue the animosity with a soon to be ex at the same time. Unfortunately in a world filled with litigious behavior, we cannot avoid the courtroom. Or can we? It is imperative that divorcing moms and dads understand the traumatic impact it will have on their children for a lifetime. It is a myth that children are resilient and will bounce back, adjusting to any situation. The effects of divorce are stamped on their hearts and souls like indelible footprints that are not easily washed away.
As your children fall into the new pattern of their lives - growing another inch - moving into a new grade – it gradually becomes a matter of success and survival. There is no indication that their emotions are in tact, because what’s happening on the inside doesn’t always coincide with outward appearances.
I am an advocate for shared parenting and wished I could have employed this concept in my own divorce. I tried. It does not always work, but when it does it is magic. Both parents must be willing to begin the journey of raising their children together (and apart) in a healthy nurturing environment. If one parent chooses the low road and decides to seek his or her emotional justice by using their children as a weapon, then any positive steps the other parent has decided to traverse will be for naught. Many parents’ today get it. They are trying, no matter how difficult their separation was or is, they are trying to put their children first.
I am an alienated mother of four. I can see your faces now! What is an alienated mom or dad? Simply put, the act of parental alienation is when one spouse turns the children against his or her ex and family. The tentacles of alienation do not only affect the target parent. They extend to grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, but more importantly they grab a child and take hold, destroying every thread of trust and self-esteem that the child possessed prior to the divorce.
I was a mother to my children for 20 years and in January of 2005 that all came to a screeching halt. After receiving joint custody of my children in the divorce, I wanted to try the concept of shared parenting and be as friendly as we possible could be to one another. After all, my ex spouse and I would be linked by our children for the rest of our lives. Why would it be wrong to have an amicable relationship after divorce? I had even agreed to live on the same 78 acres in a separate home so that my children could feel comfortable and would simply have to walk the length of a football field to see mom or dad whenever they chose to do so.
In January, 2006 the best laid plans began to unravel and I saw the ugly head of parental alienation begin to manifest itself in my children’s behavior. I was called by my first name, phone calls were abruptly ended and planned events were cancelled for something better with Dad. Hang up phone calls eventually turned to silence and within 4 months the alienation process was complete. I had lost my children to the brainwashing techniques of a vindictive spouse and my children had lost half of their identity. Five years later, my family and I have had no contact with my children. I will not be deterred in the face of adversity. I will continue to try to renew and restore the once loving relationships that my family and I once shared with these four beautiful children.
I have made it my goal to create awareness and be a strong voice for our most precious commodity, our children. I serve on the board of Parental Alienation Awareness Organization (PAAO.org). As Sarvy Emo, the founder of PAAO so eloquently puts, “With awareness comes education and with education, comes the power to stop the emotional and mental abuse of children.”

YOU hurt Me
To the Core
I'm Sad we won't
Be friends anymore.
You said that it frustrated you
and I was a bore -
All because I won't participate
In fantasies - -
This you Ignore -
But, still I'm sad,
I've lost a friend
Who had been dear to me - -
But, I'll stand tall
And a Lady
I WILL BE!
Too Bad - you can dismiss
A friend so easily....

The War of the Social Networking Giants
The Social Networking
giants are at war. The big players MySpace
still rule the roost, in terms of influence and network traffic but a new player Twitter
has entered the scene, and though it has a long way to go to be a real contender is gaining followers fast.
Twitters power lies, perhaps, in the ease with which it’s interface can transmit potentially valuable information
instantaneously to tens of thousands of individuals, each of whom has the option to resend it, with minimal clicks, to further tens of thousands of fresh recipients. This feature enables news to spread like wildfire. For example yesterday news of South East Australia’s earthquake was common knowledge around the globe via
Twitter long before news agencies had a chance to get a handle on it.
The Twitter interface also enables continuous delivery of real time
messages which are displayed sequentially in no more than 140 characters, enabling those with quick minds, to sift through hundreds of thousands of messages, or Tweets, quickly and pull out only valuable information, which in more cases is further elaborated on, in a link page. The search
facility of Twitter is also invaluable.
So, who is winning the war at present? As far as figures go, JR Raphael reports
(1) that compared to MySpace
with, an annual 28% fall in US social network traffic to 52.21%, Facebook
increased its annual traffic by 149% to give it a 36.03% of the network traffic pie. Facebook is looking good at the moment since it “has about 150 million users, compared with the rapidly expanding Twitter's 6 million,” (7) but it is early days and Sarah Lacy of, “Business Week,”
suggests that, ”if anyone wants a shot at beating Facebook at its own game, Twitter
is the property to get you there.”
It seems that Facebook
, is keenly aware of the threat, for in a move aimed at out-foxing Twitter, it has been instrumental in the development of a new version of the Twitter application TweetDeck.
The updated version can receive both Tweets and Facebook updates all within a single interface and can cross-post between the two sites. Nick O'Neill (5) explains
that, like Twitter, “Facebook clearly wants to become a platform for real-time communication and sharing
among individuals and this new service will most definitely help further that goal. "
According to Sarah Lacey
, (6) “Peter Thiel can try to damp enthusiasm for Twitter
by saying Facebook
is eyeing lots of acquisitions. But there's a reason Facebook was hungry enough for Twitter that it offered $500 million in stock and cash to a company with a small staff and no revenue—in the middle of a recession.” It will be recorded in the social networking history e-Books that Twitter declined the offer.
