About Parental Alienation Awareness Day
About the organization that started Parental Alienation Awareness Day
The Parental Alienation Awareness Organization ( PAAO ) was founded by Sarvy Emo of Oakville, Ontario Canada, who learned about Parental Alienation in 2005 through her experience with her close friend's children. Both she and her close friend were targets of Parental Alienation behaviours.
Because most people do not know about Parental Alienation until they experience it, the Parental Alienation Awareness Organization was stared to raise awareness and provide education about this growing problem.
Their goal is to educate the general public, schools, police, mental health counsellors, religious leaders, as well as the perpetrators who may be unaware of how the negative effect of their alienating behaviours harms children. Their goal is education. They believe that with education comes understanding, and will result in lessening the emotional and mental abuse of children.
