Wow, this is great. Retribution and compensation for the damage of losing time with your child during their precious childhood. We’ve got laws about stuff – property, bodily damage – but how nice to start addressing the real things of life – the most prized – ethereal things – that can’t be replaced. Perhaps that’s why these things are hard to bring to justice – there is difficulty finding tangible compensation.
Yes, we’re afraid of the bully parent who does this. We’re afraid they’ll make it even worse for us and our child. No matter the amount or type of sentence/compensation this parent would receive, surely if nothing more than a legal slap on the hand of the offender does something? Surely exposure does something? Surely we know that bullies thrive when others hide.
Most importantly, the child gets more of two parents – more of what he/she deserves and needs. If you like, check out “Fun Fact: Your Ex is a Rock Star“
