Pennsylvania must criminalize, Exploitation of Children!
A child is exploited when a parent blatantly uses a child for personal gain.
Child Exploitation is common during or after separation and divorce. Particularly when conflict arises.
A child can be exploited when:
(A) one parent uses a child to extort child support from the other parent. This act is generally accompanied by an unfair withdraw of physical, over-night time with the other parent. In extreme cases, a parent will attempt to alienate a child from the other parent, resulting in 100% physical custody.
(B) one parent uses a child as a pawn to control a situation. "you can see your son/daughter after you pay child support" "sign this divorce decree, then your can see your son/daughter"
(C) one parent uses the child as revenge to hurt the other parent. "he/she cheated on me, he/she doesn't need to see the child."
Actions used to exploit a child causes significant emotional and mental stress to that child. It also effects the target parent emotionally & mentally. A sudden change in status quo is not in the best interests of the child and severs maintained normality. Adding a complete change of residence, schools, friends, and other life issues to the mountain of insecurities brought about by the divorce / separation of their parents is seen to have a negative affect on the children.
