Unfortunately, it is a reality impossible to imagine unless you've lived it or have read this story. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This book so closely portrays what my husband did to my children that I could have written it myself.
The Parentectomy a Memoir: A Perspective on Rising Above Parental Alienation
Though I didn't get pregnant while still married, I did do things that "helped" my husband turn my children against me. I just didn't know it at the time. This book would be very helpful to anyone who even suspects Parental Alienation Syndrome in their family. I wish I had read it 10 years ago. It is amazing how this story has paralleled my wife's experience with her ex husband and their one child.
After voluntarily allowing her son to move in with his father when he was 13 years old, he and his wife have done every ing in their power to erase her from her sons life. After 20 years of divorce it is a game for him to "win" his son over and make their sons mother the "loser". Emotionally exhausting and even frightening look at the intrusive and dangerously ineffective mechanisms often awaiting children and parents struggling with divorce. A guide and a warning to anyone dealing with Parental Alienation. This book and the underlying story resonated with me, I could have written the book myself!
I started reading it the night it arrived, and when the next day dawned, I was almost done with it. I could not believe how much this author's story resembled my own, and that was comforting. Dealing with this kind of heartbreak is hard, but it helps knowing you're not alone.

Great story about a terrible situation. It is happening to us now, and the story is exactly what we are experiencing.
The Parentectomy a Memoir: A Perspective on Rising Above Parental Alienation by Kimber Adams
It was an excellent book, once I started I couldn't stop. I know the author and she did a wonderful job. We all heard the story from the other side, and now we know the other side of the story. Thank you, Kimber Adams, for an excellent heartfelt read from the perspective of an alienated parent.
I would advise any couple on the point of separation or divorce to read this book. It's important to say that men don't have a monopoly on PAS; women are equally guilty. Parental Alienation Syndrome is so subtle that it mostly goes unnoticed; it's a subject so alien to the experience of those who have no reason to know about it, including close friends, that the sufferer cannot explain why they feel they're being driven mad, or worse; suicidal thoughts are not uncommon. Without a balanced sense of our own identity and the support of those who understand, lives can be irreparably damaged.

Children eventually realize that if their parent's don't love each other unconditionally, how can they trust that they themselves are loved unconditionally? Moreover how can they believe that any partner in the future will love them unconditionally? Love is an over-used and under-practiced word; in reality love isn't always as unconditional as we would like to believe. Peter is clearly a manipulative control freak who uses his children as pawns in a dangerous game where everyone loses; a two inch man with a twenty foot ego, he will do whatever it takes to deny his part in the failure of his marriage.
The more he demonizes his wife; the more his children can be persuaded to take his side, the less responsibility he has to take for his own mistakes. Tragically it often takes years to understand PAS and expose it for what it is, partly because when the victim is under attack seemingly from all quarters, self doubt creeps in and it's easy to take too much blame for what is happening.
Life then becomes a nightmare that saps every ounce of positivity, leaving us drained and desperately unhappy. It is a terrible thing to have to do; a terrible feeling; a terrible loss. In The Parentectomy the husband, Peter, is no doubt justifiably portrayed as an out and out rat, but in most stories even the villain has some redeeming qualities, however from cover to cover it's notable that Peter has none; Having been through a similar experience, and without in any way suggesting that the incidents in the book are untrue, it usually takes two to tango.
I would like to have heard Peter's POV in his own voice. The children behaved selfishly, playing their parents off each other; nothing unusual in a contentious divorce. Paige meets a stunning guy, Viktor, on a train before she left her marriage, and although Viktor had nothing to do with the breakup of this marriage [they only date after the breakup] Peter was quickly replaced by Viktor, the new love. On top of everything else happening in this tortured family, their mother's new baby and a potential stepfather from another culture could only add to the children's confusion. What Paige was forced to endure after the breakup of her marriage was cruel and inhuman, but in one respect she was lucky.
Not every alienated parent has the comfort of a shoulder to cry on at the time, or a loving new partner to replace the old, consequently they face alienation alone. My friend's husband used his wife's emotional fragility [caused by his abuse and affairs] to gain custody of her son and two beautiful daughters. My friend took her own life. The Kindle version of The Parentectomy is somewhat untidy. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving…. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

Aug 28, Janet added it Recommended to Janet by: How cool do I feel that I just got a personal call from the author today? The other reason I'm reading it is, sadly, for personal reasons. The now former love of my life became former in large part because of this horrific tactic used by one spouse to manipulate another. I'm hoping for deeper understanding of this issue
