The spectre of parental alienation still roams across the country and is being used regularly to inflict the maximum amount of punishment on parents and children and continues to be used with increased vigour. I have been promised by the Minister for Justice, who is well-meaning, that she will deliver with regard to a change in regulations to prevent this atrocity from happening. Will the Taoiseach lend his full weight and support to that proposal?

That it has terrible Adverse Childhood Experiences often lifelong on Children. it is child abuse and also a form of so far un legislated in Ireland form of emotional coercive control on parents and grandparents
