My husband Gary no longer has to deal with an evil X or a daughter being brainwashed. 

 He is free. 

 My heart goes out to the men who are just beginning their journey of being abused by the courts and evil X's, psychologists, doctors, lawyers, and all others involved in this money making scheme... 

Honestly...  I feel so sad for you all... 

In Memory...

Soon Ready for Publication

Good news everybody!  
Gracie's Diary, A Memoir
is currently being reviewed by an attorney 
(fingers and paws crossed)
will be ready for publication sometime soon!

Stay tuned!!!!

Dear Diary,
Mom says pictures are important because I am going to be famous.  I'm agreeing to pose but only because she is offering Scooby Snacks in return.  Can I get her for bribery? I need to have a talk with that attorney who's reading my diary...

Dr. Phil... We'd Like To... but X Doesn't Want Exposed!

The Dr. Phil show keeps calling our house wanting us to do a show on parental alienation. 

There are not many alienators who would agree to go on national television and be exposed.  Gary's X is no different.  

Once again, The Dr. Phil show calls tonight.  

But that show will never happen.  Because  X and alienated adult child will never admit to truth.



I'm not sure where it will all end, but one thing is certain... men need to stand up and be counted.  The family courts are taking away their dignity and place in the world.  Men are no longer the head of the house, the way God intended them to be.  

Our country thrives on taking care of other countries.  We can always be found supporting those nations in need, flying food to the hungry, providing help for devastated area's etc. But what about the cruel and inhumane way fathers are treated in family courts?  Shame on this system of inhumanity to their own!!  

If a woman becomes pregnant, she has the right to abort (kill) that baby if she wishes.  The father of that child has no rights at that point.  
If she does decide to keep the baby, and gives birth... the father is obligated to pay for the baby until it becomes an adult.  If the mother decides she does not want the father in the child's life, all she has to do is wave a magic wand and contact the family courts and voila!  It is done.  BUT, the father is still obligated to pay for the child.  It does not matter if the father is sick, destitute, living in a shack, living in a car, living on the streets, has cancer, is on his death bed gasping for his last breaths > the X, the courts, the lawyers, the psychologist and doctors, the masters etc. will be standing over him... hands out.... "WHERE'S THE MONEY????"

Inhumane.   May God be your judge!

It's hard to believe that this child now HATES her father right?  Thank the above mentioned for that.

Parental Alienation = Child Abuse

Today is a new hearing at the Domestic Relations in the Lehigh County Courts to determine how much more money they can pull from Gary before Athena becomes emancipated next year.  Ha!  It's pretty funny how that works.  He has not been allowed to see his daughter for over 4 years, but goes back to court every couple months for higher support.  

A crazy world we live in!

Someday, someone will have to answer for what they have done.  

The little girl on the left is the 
daughter who was alienated from
her father (on the right).  

Parental Alienation = Child abuse!

The Money Train Continues, The Parental Alienation is Done.

Every month we send money.  We never hear anything.  Never know anything.  Only court dates when more money is wanted.  Parental Alienation is Evil and Wrong.  It is Child Abuse.

Athena is the one on the right... The daughter
that was removed from her fathers life
through bribery, hypnosis, and brainwashing.

Diana Yarnall, Parental Alienation is Evil and Wrong!

I keep hearing more and more horror stories about Parental Alienation.  I'm feeling such sorrow for young guys just starting out.  Gary's daughter Athena has turned eighteen but he still pays child support.  He hasn't seen his daughter since she was fourteen. But, even though the X worked hard at removing him from her life... the X still... to this day... sees him in court almost bi-monthly to ask for more money!  Nerve?  You bet.  Only the evilest of evil would do what she's done. 


In Memory of..
A Daughter who Once Loved Her Father

Parental Alienation is What Was Happening To Athena

An excerpt from the book:

Parental Alienation had become a popular tool used by divorced couples as a way of ‘getting even’ with the ex-spouse that they had come to abhor.  When the hatred for that ex becomes stronger than the love for their child together, it opens the door to this manipulative behavior.  The reports showed astonishing numbers of children that had been turned away from their fathers and sometimes mothers through brainwashing, false allegations, hypnotism and bribery.  It was exactly what was happening to Athena.  


I don't suppose the Courts and it's Money-Train of  judges, masters, lawyers, psychologists and doctors are believers.  God is good.  I don't suppose evil X's believe either.  How could they, and turn their children away from their father's?

Memories of brighter days.  

  Some might be 'posers' and do the church thing and all...  but to have an intimate relationship with God, and believe in Him...  and be true Christian??  

  God will someday judge.  

It bothers me.  That these 'squeaky clean' evil X's take on the look of a saint...  because I know in my heart the truth.

An interesting way of categorizing people... A pastor was in my office a few weeks back and he shared this with me:
There are three kinds of people in todays world.  

1) Non-Believers  
2) Believers
3) Make-Believers

I rest now, and know that God will take care of it all.

Eighteen at Last

Well, Athena turned 18 last week.  Nothing much to report.  She put a sarcastic video on youtube making fun of me and my blogs.  I was hoping for more.  Hoping that she'd come around... not for me but for her dad.  But there's nothing there.  Nothing left.

Happier days shows a father and daughter savoring their court appointed time together.  Parental alienation is so cruel.

Legal Child Abuse - click here

Parental Alienation. I like to refer to it as Legal Child Abuse. 
My husband's  (Gary) daughter Athena will turn 18 in just two weeks.  They have not had a relationship since the beginning of 2006.  The past 4 years have been a nightmare. 

 A book is being written and will hopefully be ready for publication by mid October of this year.  It's title - Gracie's Diary, A Memoir.

This ‘Child Custody’ case is too long and complicated for most to understand, so I’ve made a diagram to make it easier.

First let me say that Athena did not turn against her father and accuse him of anything bad until the basement psychologist began to hypnotize her over and over and over again.   

I. 1998 - Separation / Gary moves to Indiana, Diana stays back and files for divorce.
a. Diana files a PFA against Gary (for no reason).

b. Diana would belittle Gary over the phone with Athena present.

c. Diana filed a custody order so that Gary couldn’t take Athena out of the Lehigh Valley.

II. 2001 - Divorce Final
a. Diana continued trying to alienate.

b. Gary makes 1,500 mile trips, once a month to see his daughter, sometimes having to turn around and go home because Diana wouldn't allow him to see her.

c. Gary continues to fight in court, and is given permission to take Athena out of Lehigh Valley.

III. 2003 - Athena wants to live with Father

a. Diana takes Athena to pediatrician claiming 10 yr. Old Athena is suicidal (untrue) ‘Can you put her on antidepressants?’

b. Dr. puts Athena on 25 mg. Zoloft 1x a day.

c. Gary fights this in court, but loses.

IV. 2004 - 2005 Athena continues to ask to live with her Father

a. Diana takes Athena back to the Doctor to have her put on new meds. She’s now on 20 mg. Lexapro.

V. 2005 - Athena continues to want to live with her Father and is sad when she

goes home after visitation.

a. In Dec. of 2005 Diana takes Athena to see a Psychologist, Jack Gerhard.

b. Diana suggests Athena could have been molested by Gary’s father (Athena’s grandfather) and that is the reason for her depression.

VI. 2006 - Athena continues to want to live with her Father.

a. Athena’s Psychologist tells Gary, Athena shows no signs of sexual abuse.

b. Diana insists that Gary’s father may have molested her. Athena says no.

c. Gary writes Diana an email stating that he will have no parts of paying for this psychologist because she is on a witch hunt to destroy him. He also suggests that she might want to take her own family members into consideration if looking for sexual abuse in Athena.

d. Gary’s father dies suddenly of a heart attack. Athena attends viewing and funeral; is very upset.

e. Gary drives 4 hours to pick Athena up for scheduled 2 week vacation and Diana denies him, saying Athena wanted to spend time with a friend. She won’t divulge her whereabouts.

f. Gary discovers Athena’s upsetting ‘my space’ site and goes to her school.

g. Gary receives requested medical files on Athena discovering her meds had been changed two times due to weight gain with Lexapro:

• 150 mg. Wellbutrin & 2 mg. Lunesta

• 300 mg. Wellbutrin & 5 mg. Lexapro & 2 mg. Lunesta

h. Athena’s grades drop

i. Gary is still denied any contact with her.

j. Gary is investigated by CPS for child molestation toward Athena.

• Report comes up UNFOUNDED

k. Gary goes for intestinal surgery.

* Athena wants to see her father, but is told he doesn’t want to see her.

* Athena say’s she wants to kill herself, and is admitted to psych ward.

l. Court Conference… Gary is still denied any contact with Athena due to testimony of Athena’s Psychologist, Jack Gerhard. A COURT ORDERED Psychological Evaluation of entire family is pending.

m. Athena writes a vulgar email to Gary stating she never wants to see him again.

VII. Gary continues to have no contact with Athena

a. Diana now makes accusations that Athena was molested by Gary, his father and his son (Athena’s brother).

b. Athena is expelled from her school.

c. During the session with the court appointed psychologist, Athena recants all accusations of molestation.

d. Dr. Gordon recommends Gary and Athena resume visitation as before.

e. Diana refuses to allow Gary to see Athena and finds another Psychologist to challenge the decision.

f. Dr. Esteeve reads Dr. Gordons report and makes a different conclusion.

g. Court Conference…. The master refuses to make a determination and sends it to a hearing, giving Diana’s lawyer the task of arranging supervised visitation for Athena and Gary… and also for testimony of Dr. Gordon and other Psychologists involved.


Jack Gerhard: after over a year of EMDR and hypnosis recommends no contact between Athena and her father.

 (Psychiatrist): After evaluation of Athena in the Psych. ward he suggests no molestation signs are present. Say's father needs to be talked to because this is the reason for Athena's depression (that he does not want to see her anymore)  Gary knew nothing about this until much later.  It was all lies to get him out of her life.

Dr. Robert Gordon: Court appointed psychologist suggests no molestation signs are present, and recommends visitation to resume between Athena and Gary. Also, he recommends therapy for Diana.

Dr. Esteeve: Diana pays this psychologist to look over the report, and a new determination is made so that Gary and Athena are still not allowed to see one another.


1. Gary agrees to see Athena through supervised visits.

2. On the first supervised visit, Athena admits that her mother forced her to say those things about her father. She tells him she never meant for it to get this out-of-hand.

3. After two supervised visits, Athena does not show up for future visits. She is recorded as having anxiety attacks because she had to see her father.

4. Athena puts a video on youtube telling her father that she hates him and burns his picture.

5. Gary never sees his daughter again.

Athena turns 18 in just 2 weeks. There has been no relationship between the two of them in over 4 years due to parental alienation.

Jealousy, The Green Eyed Monster

I'm guessing that the X was jealous that her daughter got along so well with me.  And that her daughter wanted to live with her father and me.  All we wanted was to have a happy home and enjoy our court appointed time with her.


Gracie's Diary, a Memoir


Watch this YouTube video and tell me parental alienation doesn't exist!! This is child abuse!!!

To Rise Above!

This weekend we rose above the sick facade that had been created toward Gary through the parental alienation that took place, and we attended one of the fund raisers for Athena's Christian High School. I in no way shape or form wanted to run into evil X so I must say I was somewhat nervous. But we put on our best smiles and evening attire (according to Athena's vlog Christian's don't wear jeans)... and walked respectively into what we thought may very well be a lions den. But first we prayed.
The good news is... evil X was not there. More good news. The food was great. Even more good news. The people were friendly and fun to be around. As a matter of fact, I can't think of anything negative to report. We had a wonderful time, made new friends, and won a huge crayola basket and candy basket in the Silent Auction. *Sigh*

Back Yard of Parental Alienation. Cruel! Abusive! Destructive!

If it's not in your back yard, you more than likely don't know a whole lot about it.

I googled 'false accusations of molestation' and 'custody' and I discovered a topic that I'd never heard of before. Parental Alienation. It was exactly what was happening between my husband Gary and his X.

His daughter adored him, and even wanted to live with us. Why would she now hate him and accuse him of such horrible things?!

I was sure that he would come out of the family court session with not only his visitation back... but the master would probably grant him custody beings his X was poisoning this childs mind against the non-custodial parent.

Needless to say, my assumptions were wrong. He lost all visitation rights with Athena, his daughter. The family courts didn't care about the excessive drugs the child was being put on... nor did they care about the hypnosis and EMDR. They didn't care about the bribery nor the brainwashing techniques used by the so called 'professional' basement psychologist.

I would have given up that day. There is no fairness in family courts as far as I can see.

But Gary moved forward and fought till he could fight no more. Our bank account is depleted along with Gary's health. And nothing has changed.

Parental Alienation lives in our back yard. We deal with the fallout from it daily. It is ugly and cruel. It is abusive and painful.

If it's not in your back yard, you know nothing about it. You may look at the 'accused' father and think 'hmmmmm what a horrible man for what he did to his own daughter'.

False alegations of abuse are running rampant in our family courts today. It needs to be stopped.

Going from Love to Hate. Parental Alienation?

What Kind of a Sick Family Court System Would Destroy This?

What I remember the most about my step-daughter was the way she clung to her father. She looked at him with love and admiration. She loved him to the point where she wanted to come and live with him. Not only was she not allowed to live with him... but any good memories seemed to eventually be erased from her mind after years of a basement psychologist's therapy of mind control and hypnosis. Finally, false allegations of sexual abuse.

It's a sick society today that will go to these lengths to get a father out of a childs life. Sick.

Brainwashing a child to hate another parent. Check Out The Similarities Between the POW's of Korea and POW's of Divorce!

Brainwashing as a term and modern concept originated in the Korean War, when American prisoners of war who had been incarcerated by the Chinese returned to America espousing communist ideals. This was particularly frightening at the time as the specter of the communist Russian USSR, with its escalating nuclear capability, was causing 'red under the bed' paranoia, and the thought of Americans being converted to communism against their will was terrifying for many.

The prisoners in Korea first suffered severe physical and psychological stress, ranging from starvation to being incarcerated in tiny boxes for days and even months at a time, to standing bound with a rope around the neck such that falling would result in strangulation. Sleep was also regularly disturbed.

Their social structure was also broken up, with leaders separated from troops, religious expression banned and mail withheld and most other forms of cognitive stimulation removed.

Meanwhile constant attempts were made to recruit them to the Communist cause, including:

Daily lectures that lasted for hours about the perils of Capitalism and the benefits of Communism with enforced participation.

Interrogations that lasted for weeks, where the interrogator lived with the prisoner and was often very friendly.

Isolation from others, in particular having letters from home withheld and being told that their families did not care about them.

Humiliation and enforced public confessions, including self-criticism over breaking of trivial rules.

Small rewards, such as food, clothing and improvements in living conditions, for any form of desired cooperation.

Brainwashing. Was this method used by Diana Yarnall and basement psychologist Jack Gerhard? You decide.

­­Dur­ing the Korean War, Korean and Chinese captors reportedly brainwashed American POWs held in prison camps. Several prisoners ultimately confessed to waging germ warfare -- which they hadn't -- and pledged allegiance to communism by th­e end of their captivity. At least 21 soldiers refused to come back to the United States when they were set free. ­It sounds impressive, but skeptics point ­out that it was 21 out of more than 20,000 prisoners in communist countries. Does brainwashing really work in any reliable way?

In psychology, the study of brainwashing, often referred to as thought reform, falls into the sphere of "social influence." Social influence happens every minute of every day. It's the collection of ways in which people can change other people's attitudes, beliefs and behaviors. For instance, the compliance method aims to produce a change in a person's behavior and is not concerned with his attitudes or beliefs. It's the "Just do it" approach. Persuasion, on the other hand, aims for a change in attitude, or "Do it because it'll make you feel good/happy/healthy/successful." The education method (which is called the "propaganda method" when you don't believe in what's being taught) goes for the social-influence gold, trying to affect a change in the person's beliefs, along the lines of "Do it because you know it's the right thing to do." Brainwashing is a severe form of social influence that combine­s all of these approaches to cause changes in someone's way of thinking without that person's consent and often against his will.

Because brainwashing is such an invasive form of influence, it requires the complete isolation and dependency of the subject, which is why you mostly hear of brainwashing occurring in prison camps or totalist cults. The agent (the brainwasher) must have complete control over the target (the brainwashee) so that sleep patterns, eating, using the bathroom and the fulfillment of other basic human needs depend on the will of the agent. In the brainwashing process, the agent systematically breaks down the target's identity to the point that it doesn't work anymore. The agent then replaces it with another set of behaviors, attitudes and beliefs that work in the target's current environment.
