Parental Alienation what is it? Is it common in Hong Kong divorces?
Social Welfare Tai Po Officer, Ms. Cherry Tsui told me today Parental Alienation is very common in Hong Kong. Social Welfare Officers have very little training or none at all on alienation. And they do not have the time to investigate it. That the family court and Social Welfare Department can do nothing to stop one parent who has care of a child to put into practice aligning a child against the other parent. Her suggested solutions astounded me which I will share as we delve into this child care issue for Hong Kong.
I will tackle this problem on this website as this is a direct violation of a child’s basic human right to access to joint parenting. By the way I have my own story to tell with over 700 hours denied to me from my children from December 2012 to April 2013. And hundreds more since that time.
