This foundation is here to help families overcome obstacles such as drugs/alcohol; illness; jail/incarceration; divorce/separation, and other situations which lead to a change in their family dynamics which results in two homes for the children instead of one. We are here to teach how to have a "separate but not broken" family- embracing the Spirit of Ohana (Hawaiian for FAMILY) spirit so that "Nobody Gets Left Behind or Forgotten."
When the parents are not together for whatever reason, children do not divorce or dissolve their relationships with their parents and should never be expected to do so. We strongly believe that Hostile Aggressive Parenting (HAP) tactics is a form of Spiritual Child Abuse which needs to be eradicated from the norm of how divorces are handled in today's society.
We are here to teach parents how to effectively co-parent, reducing the amount of time spent in court, and the interference of the government intrusion into family structure. With Godly principles in place, and applied to all aspects of dealing with former spouses, grandparents and other extended family members, the children benefit. This helps them to realize the people who matter to them.
Some of you may ask why the founder started the Joshua Rose Foundation. The answer is simple- she is an adult survivor of having been kept from her father for ten years, reunited with him at age 19. Her biological mother used the corruption of the Family Courts of Injustice to Legally Kidnap her children while the founder and her children's father were going through their divorce. There was, as many of us sadly find out, no true justice in Family Court and the deception that the founders mother played on all of them, is only a continuation of her sick game that she has done to the founder since childhood.
Statement from the founder:
"To those who may come here seeking help, please know that I am not for or against Father's rights or Mothers rights, however, I am for FAMILY RIGHTS and the rights of children to have HEALTHY relationships with FIT and LOVING parents without the interference of third party individuals and certainly less intrusion by the government.
At NO TIME, do I condone any form of abuse whether it is physical, mental, emotional, verbal or spiritual abuse. Where there are cases of drug/alcohol use, then supervised visitation needs to be put in place for the safety and security of the CHILDREN. IN the event of ACTUAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, then it is the priority of the abused ADULT to secure themselves and the the children and wait until proper security measures are in place before any visitation takes place with the abusive party.
It is often said that it takes a village to raise a child, however I disagree. I feel, it is always in the best interest for a child to be raised by their parents, first and foremost. If something should happen that the parents are no longer together for whatever reason, then they need to learn to effectively co-parent and be the best PARENTS they can be for their children regardless of circumstances. I also feel it is essential for children to remain in touch and be able to have loving relationships with extended family members. I DO NOT feel it is appropriate for ANY FAMILY MEMBER to interfere and take custody away from either of the parents unless they are deemed unfit by a court law with CLEAR and CONCISE EVIDENCE. IF there are NO FINDINGS of unfit behaviors on either parent, then the extended family members need to be there for the children and parents, but do not interfere in such a way that they undermine the parental bonds and confidences that children should be able to have with their parents. There are some situations where we review this on a case by case basis.
Having personally lived my entire life with Hostile Aggressive Parenting tactics as a child, Sibling Alienation as a result of being kept from my brothers for rebelling against my mother's lies about my father, and now unjustly kept from my own children, it is my personal goal to educate, empower and inform the public about the travesty of the most viscous and cruel form of child abuse. To teach a child to hate their other parent is to teach them to hate part of themselves. Lastly, I would remind everyone, that the 5th commandment says "Children are to honor BOTH MOTHER & FATHER, not choose between them"
