People dismiss family abduction as a battle between parents because they don’t look at it from the kid’s shoes. Incredibly, 64 percent of our members report that the parent who took them believed it was in their best interest! Only 11 percent of those members agree that it was.
Whatever the parent’s reason, abductions happen as a result of extreme emotional distress. A child is not safe being taken into isolation by a distressed caregiver. Fifty percent of Take Root’s members were also physically abused by the parent who took them, and 100 percent suffered the psychological trauma of being abducted.
