Tracy Hatch started this petition to SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT

I want to raise awareness of child alienation, the abuse where one separated parent alienates the children against the other parent, so that professionals can look out for the signs and take action to stop this type of abuse happening to the children of Scotland. 
I feel there needs to be more of a deterrent for parents who commit this type of abuse and I therefore want to see specific legislation brought into place to convict and punish those parents who abuse their children in such ways. 
The ongoing effects psychologically on children’s mental health and ability to form relationships in the future and into adulthood can be devastating, and more needs to be done to stop this abuse in our society now! 
If you would like further information regarding parent alienation and examples of how wide spread an issue this is, especially for fathers across Scotland who are desperately trying to fight for contact with their children, I would suggest you have a look at “Fathers 4 Justice” and “Families Need Fathers Scotland” websites. 
I have seen first hand the effects this abuse has and the lack of awareness from professionals about it, therefore would be very grateful if you could sign my petition and help bring the change needed to better protect the children of Scotland.
