Recently Dr Rakesh Kapur wrote an excellent, informative article regarding a widely prevalent but seldom acknowledged form of child abuse known as Parental Alienation. He warned about its catastrophic consequences. With the rise in divorce rates in India, our children seem to be condemned to a permanent life-long handicap due to no fault of theirs.

What is the solution and as a society what are we doing to address this silent epidemic? Do we keep ignoring it thinking 'its not my family getting affected, so why shall I bother?' or shall we contribute our bit to save the future generations from being affected? How can we help our children?
