Editorial Reviews

2017 USA Best Book Awards Finalist in LGBTQ Non-Fiction"Michelle's enthralling and heartbreaking story presents the raw truth of what it is like to be the target of another parent's alienating behaviors. Her experience reflects that of millions of other parents who are blamed for what is happening to them, and for whom there is no relief. It takes great courage to share such a story, and Michelle Darné is to be commended for her courage to do so."-Jennifer J. Harman, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychology at Colorado State University and author of Parents Acting Badly: How Societies and Institutions Promote the Alienation of Children from their Loving Families"Parent Deleted is a MUST read for all parents, everywhere. It tragically exemplifies how parents can be alienated from their children. This powerful story reminds us why we must protect our families, even if from ourselves, and illustrates-with disarming humility-what we can and must avoid at all costs. Children need access to all of their loving parents and extended families! Michelle Darne's book is also an olive branch to the millions of children who have been severed from their parents. Parent Deleted will spark unexpected, invaluable conversations and change how we plan our families."-Dr. Terri Orbuch (PhD), The Love Doctor®, Professor at Oakland University, and author of 5 Simple Steps to Take Your Marriage From Good to Great"An uplifting message to mistreated and alienated parents, and a must-read for all seeking to end institutionally endorsed parental alienation."-William Bernet, M.D., Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychiatry, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, and author of Parent Alienation: The Handbook for Mental Health and Legal Professionals (Behavioral Science and Law) and co-author of Children of Divorce: A Practical Guide for Parents, Therapists, Attorneys, and Judges
