“Bubbles of Love/International Parental Alienation Awareness Day” is a day to recognize all of the children who have been separated from their mom or dad or both, and extended family members by the government. Whether you are a parent going through divorce or separation or your child was taken by a state agency without good cause, these children's lives have been disrupted and they are not getting to see some of their family members.
We blow bubbles on this day because we believe that the children deserve and are entitled to receive love and care from all of their family members. The “Bubbles represent LOVE. Just like bubbles, LOVE cannot and should not be contained.”
“BUBBLES OF LOVE” Parental Alienation Awareness Day (PAAD) takes place on April 25, 2020, as part of a global campaign to raise awareness about Parental Alienation.

—WHAT IS PARENTAL ALIENATION?—
Parental Alienation is the process that results in the psychological manipulation of a child to reject a parent. This manipulation may lead to a child having unwarranted fear, disrespect, or even hostility towards a parent or other family members. Parental Alienation is both a distinctive and widespread form of psychological abuse. This usually results in family violence which affects both the child and the rejected family member(s). This occurs almost exclusively in association with family separation or divorce (and particularly where legal action is involved).
Most commonly, the primary cause of such alienation is one parent wishing to exclude the other parent from the life of their child. Other family members or friends, as well as professionals involved with the family (including psychologists, lawyers, and judges), may contribute significantly to the process. Parental Alienation often leads to the long-term, or even permanent, the estrangement of a child from one parent and other family members. Parental Alienation contributes to adverse childhood experiences, and it significantly increases the risks of both mental and physical illness for children.
—WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN?—
Parental Alienation is a destructive process that occurs in some families during or following a divorce. Distorted parental practices happen when one parent has a severely distorting influence on the child’s relationship with the other parent. This may cause the child to entirely reject a relationship with a normal-range, loving, and affectionate parent. As a result, the child loses a healthy relationship with a loving and affectionate parent. This can leave a child in an unhealthy, psychological pathogenic parent situation. The Alienation represents the family’s inability to transition from an intact family structure united by the marriage to a separated family structure united by the children and by the continuing parental relationships with the children. The family’s difficulty with this transition is the result of one parent’s narcissistic personality traits that are distorting this parent’s response to the divorce and dissolution of the marriage. The narcissistic personality traits of one parent are then damaging the child’s relationship with the other parent.
