Children suffer permanent damage from vindictive, hateful ex spouses who keep them away from the other parent. This is a pure child abuse by ex spouses who mostly suffer from Borderline Personality Disorders, Schizoid Personality Disorders or Paranoid Personality Disorders or a combination of these and others.
Collectively they are know as Parental Alienation Disorder. It is incurable, but treatable, and prosecutable.
The types of lies that are told, visitation withheld, and isolation and alienation are nothing less than child abuse - CAConservative.
Gary's own daughter will turn eighteen this year. She's been doing a series of vlogs on youtube, and to me they are quite interesting. She's no longer slamming him and burning his picture hoping that he burns in hell. No. She doesn't even mention his name. It's as though he never existed. She's all happy and everything... or so she seems. But I can see through her facade. This kid will have problems all of her life. Her dad was a wonderful father, and she lost him at 13 and she played a part in that alienation.... something she will either some day have to face, or go through her life living with a lie that will affect every aspect of her life. I feel sorry for her.
