Attachment B: Letter to Schools
[your phone number]
Attn: (School Principal)
Address of school
I am writing to inform you of a case of emotional abuse of students at your school.
Within this county, (judge’s name) of the family court has ordered my children into an abusive situation. (judge’s name) has ordered or allow custody plans and visitation schedules that traumatize my children. This is emotional abuse and is as bad as sexual abuse, if not worse.
This should be immediately reported, especially since you are a mandatory reporter ordered by the state [State statute].
As (Judge’s name’s) practice, local attorneys such as (attorney’s name) thrive off of the system that the judge has created. These attorneys promote emotionally abusive custody agreements, encourage individuals to enter into them and enforce them in (judge’s name’s) court. These custody plans and visitation schedules are directly harmful to children. As a sitting judge and a practicing attorney, (Judge’s name and lawyer’s name) have an obligation to protect children from abusive situations, and the opposite of protection continues to happen. I would request that you immediately investigate these individuals and report your findings to the Department of Child Services.
Based on psychological research and statements from the American Psychological Association, prolonged separation from parents directly causes trauma, higher aces scores and can lead to splitting, depression, anxiety and lifelong psychological issues.
For children throughout this country and, in particular, in the jurisdiction in which (Judge’s name) holds office, emotional child abuse symptoms are seen in numerous cases. Despite seeing these symptoms, (Judge’s name) continues to substitute (his/her) opinion for the best interests of children. Knowing that emotional child abuse is ongoing in countless family homes and doing nothing about it is the definition of disregard for these children and the definition of a judge that should not be on the bench.
Emotional abuse is every bit as damaging as sexual abuse. Despite pleas for help (Judge’s name), repeatedly does nothing to help these children.
The US Department of Justice has defined domestic violence as an act that damages the relationship with one’s children. These court decisions are harming my parent-child relationship. It is domestic violence. I have attached empirical evidence detailing the harmfulness of the visitation schedules and custody plans put into place by (judge).
I hope that this research will prompt you to take immediate action to improve children’s lives and to protect them from abuse. Furthermore, (attorney’s name) takes advantage of (judge’s name’s) preference for these types of custody arrangements to push litigants into these types of arrangements, knowing full well that these arrangements are harmful to children. This is not an individual that should be practicing law.
Attachment A is a press release that defines emotional child abuse as bad as sexual abuse, if not worse. The press release is from the American Psychological Association dated October 2014.
Attachment B is a letter from the American Psychological Association that explains with empirical evidence and decades of psychological research from the most prestigious psychological organization in the United States that “IT IS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILD AND THE FAMILY TO KEEP FAMILIES TOGETHER” and the sudden and unexpected family separation of parents and children without any doubts causes.

Dear Principle, councilor and police on duty,
I wanted to explain the dynamics behind this so it is not to be trivialized in any manor. This is about the emotional and mental development of my children.
There have been several incidents you may not be aware of:
The reason this is so important is that it involves Psychological Child Abuse and Emotional Domestic Violence.
To be more specific:
While these may be missed by someone not specialized or trained in this form of child abuse you can be sure it is just as damaging as sexual child abuse.
On page 313 of the DSM-5: Induced Psychiatric Psychopathology: The presence in the child’s symptom display of an induced delusional belief created by the severely pathogenic parenting practices of a narcissistic/(borderline) parent.
The parent is the primary case for the delusional belief system, and pathogenic parenting practices are the origin of the child’s delusional belief. This induced delusional belief in the child created by the highly distorted pathogenic parenting practices of narcissistic/(borderline) parent, is resulting in the child’s expressed desire to terminate a relationship with a normal-range and affectionally available parent who could otherwise act as a protective psychological buffer to the pathogenic psychopathology of the narcissistic/(borderline) parent. —Dr. Craig Childress.
In the article written by Jeremy Loudenback 10/25/2015, writes that, ”A new study released last week in JAMA Psychiatry suggests that emotional abuse is just as damaging as violent abuse when it comes to mental and behavioral health. Children who have experienced psychological abuse exhibit trauma-related health issues at the same rate as their peers who have suffered physical or sexual abuse.”
The American Psychological Association on June 14, 2018 informed President Trump that, “Sudden and unexpected family separation, such as separating families at the border, can add to that stress, leading to emotional trauma in children. Research also suggests that the longer that parents and children are separated, the greater the reported symptoms of anxiety and depression are for the children.” Letter written by Arthur C. Evans, Jr. Ph.D.
In December 2014, the American Psychological Association published the article, “Childhood Psychological Abuse as Harmful as Sexual or Physical Abuse”
I attaching these documents.
Please be aware that pattern of behavior continues the perpetuation of Domestic Violence and Psychological Child Abuse.
Now knowing this, per State Mandatory Reporting Laws: Your states statute—Persons Required to Report Suspected Child Abuse, —Persons Encouraged to Report Suspected Child Abuse should notify immediately;
1. Their superiors,
2. The Office of Children and Youth.
Failure to do so will be a crime.
I would also like a copy of the report sent to my email for my records.
This is Psychological Child Abuse and Domestic Violence towards myself and my children.
This is to be handled in a manner as to not harm the relationship with my children.
I am sure your school or any other school would not want to be Pro Child Abuse and Domestic Violence.
