Start the New Year with Mike Jeffries

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

Mike Jeffries, Author of A Family’s Heartbreak: A Parent’s Introduction to Parental Alienation, is starting the new year with guest appearances on two separate radio programs.

On January 6 at 9:00 a.m. EST (6:00 a.m. Pacific) Jeffries will be the very first guest on the “Let’s Talk Family” radio program hosted by Steve Ashley. The “Let’s Talk Family” program airs locally on KSQQ 96.1 FM  in San Jose, California and is streamed live on the internet. Jeffries will discuss his experience with parental alienation — a destructive family dynamic where one parent damages, and in some cases destroys, a child’s normal healthy relationship with the child’s other parent — and how his book, A Family’s Heartbreak: A Parent’s Introduction to Parental Alienation, is helping families avoid what his family experienced. 

On January 7 at 7:00 p.m. EST Jeffries will join Host Paulette MacDonald on the “The Single Parent Show” on CFAO 94.7 FM (www.cfao947.com), Alliston Ontario’s Best Variety station.  
“The Single Parent Show” is an educational program covering a variety of topics involving parenting issues after separation and divorce. Jeffries will describe parental alienation and offer targeted parents tips on surviving this emotional devastating experience.

Both programs will be posted on the Resources page of www.afamilysheartbreak.com after their broadcasts.

Happy Holidays from A Family’s Heartbreak

Friday, December 18th, 2009

With the year rapidly coming to a close, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported A Family’s Heartbreak: A Parent’s Introduction to Parental Alienation in 2009. Whether you bought the book, helped publicize the book, or just sent us a note congratulating us on the book — thank you! We’ve had quite a year. I think the best part of this remarkable experience has been the people, both the professionals and lay people, we’ve met from around the globe who are working to help parents and children avoid parental alienation. These dedicated, caring individuals have honored us with the opportunity to work with them on our shared goals and I’m confident that together we can make a difference.

Finally, we’d like to leave you with a gift from a reader. Michael Byrnes, an alienated parent, wrote the following poem to his children.  Michael’s words capture what many alienated parents feel about their situations.

So Long for Now
by Michael Byrnes

So long for now my daughter
So long for now my son
When we’re older
We will meet again
I hope you’ll understand
It wasn’t what I wanted

I feel life was wasted
Not having been there
Not having shared
Please understand
It wasn’t what I wanted

Sometimes life goes wrong
There’s no one to blame
Oh but a waste
Time has become
Without you here
It wasn’t what I wanted

So when we meet again
Hopefully we will see
See eye to eye
And understand
Life goes wrong
And it wasn’t what I wanted

Happy holidays from A Family’s Heartbreak and best wishes for a peaceful, happy and healthy 2009.

A Family’s Heartbreak: A Parent’s Introduction to Parental Alienation is the true story of one parent’s struggle to maintain a normal, loving relationship with his young son in the face of overwhelming odds. From the emotionally devastating actions of the child’s other parent, to a court system and mental health community ill-equipped to deal with a destructive family dynamic, A Family’s Heartbreak: A Parent’s Introduction to Parental Alienation is both an education in parental alienation and an eye opening experience for parents who don’t believe this could happen to them.
