The prevailing stereotype is that good mothers do not lose custody of their children.

I attended the "Battered Mothers Custody Conference" in Albany New York, where I had the sad privilege of spending the weekend with around 200 non-Custodial Protective Parents (and advocates)--parents who through their efforts to protect their children--lost them to the abuser.

I met many Christian women at the conference who feel they cannot hold their heads up among their brothers and sisters in Christ, because of the shame attached to a mother losing custody of her children.

The prevailing stereotype is that good mothers do not lose custody.

I know this is not true .

A protective parent can be either a mother or a father who, in attempting to protect their child from abuse or sexual molestation by the other parent, experiences retaliation by the family court system in being accused of parental alienation (PAS) and having their child/children ripped from their arms and placed in the home of the abuser.
