My hope in writing and producing Welcome Back, Pluto was to translate the ideas in my guide, Divorce Poison: How To Protect Your Family From Bad-mouthing and Brainwashing, into a format that could reach children, teens, and parents.
Alienated children do not generally recognize their rejection of a parent as a problem, unless the adults in authority do not comply with their demands to avoid a parent. So one challenge for Pluto was to interest children in learning about the problem, and motivate them to overcome it.
From the early feedback I am excited to report that it appears we have hit a home run! I figured rejected parents, therapists, lawyers, and judges would like the DVD for its even-handed and compassionate treatment of the problem. But the kids’ comments are what excite me the most.
