Parental alienation is described ”a behavior by a parent, or an adult a child trusts, such as a grandmother/father, aunt, uncle, etc., whether conscious or unconscious, that could create alienation in the relationship between a child and a parent.” This awareness day was created as a part of global awareness campaign about parental alienation.
Parental Alienation Awareness Day recognised on April 25th aims to highlight to care givers the effects that đarental alienation could have on children and educate adults in order to identify signs that either they or others are behaving in a manner that could affect the children in their care. Parental Alienation usually involves one care giver attempting to turn a child against another often with a view to persuade the child that they wish to exclude the other parent from their life permanently.
The idea of PAAD belongs to Sarvy Emo from Canada. Emo introduced the observance of the day in the late 2005 with the original date on March 28. This date was changed to April 25 for marketing reasons and was put into practice in 2006.
