A insight to what goes on behind closed doors during Parental Alienation
A story based on true facts during a battle which has lasted over 27 years and continues up until this day.
These are not from memories 27 years later, the events were contemporaneously scripted at the time and have been stored for reference.
All names have been changed to protect the identity of the persons involved.
Every Christmas would be very special, we would take Edan and May to Hamleys to get an idea of what they would like for Christmas then out for a meal afterwards before returning home.
On a few occasions we invited the complete extended family over to our house for Christmas dinner as it was a double celebration with my birthday on Christmas day. It was hard work cooking for 20 people but great fun.
Sadly on the years we did not invite family we always had the dreaded phone call just as we had sat down to eat our Christmas dinner. Crying down the phone to Kram, her day had been ruined, her husband had been in the pub most of the morning and came home to verbally abuse her and her father.She would want Kram to go over to the house to settle things down.
I had the utmost sympathy for her , until after therapy I realised what she had been doing all those years. The burning of the letters and love poems I showed her when Kram was trying to convince his parents that I had driven him to a heart attack. Destroying any evidence that showed that he cared. Ruining our Christmas and birthday just because she was not there, if she was not having a good time she would make sure that we were not either.!!!!!
I came to the realisation years later that this is what she had always wanted. Any rational mother could see what Kram was doing to my children and would have intervened and told the children that I loved them very much and would have supported me.
I asked my daughter and my son several years later if their grandmother had ever told them that I was a very good mother and loved them both very much. You can guess thier reply, “no never”.
Her son could do no wrong, I think she would even let him get away with murder.
