    Minnesota Judge Michael Hass 2001
    ” Your children have come into this World because of the two of you. Perhaps you two made lousy choices as to whom you decided to be the parent, If so, this is your problem and your fault.

    No matter what you think of the other party- or what your family thinks of the other party these children are one half of each of you. Remember that, because every time you tell your child what an “idiot” her father is or what a ” fool” her mother is, or how bad the absent parent is, or what a terrible thing that person has done , you are telling the child that half of her is bad.

    That is an unforgivable thing to do to a child. That is not love. That is possession. If you do that to your child you will destroy them as surely as if you had cut them to pieces. Because that is what you are doing to their emotions.
    I sincerely hope that you do not do that to your children. Think more about your children and less about yourselves and make
    Yours a selfless kind of love, not foolish or selfish, or your children will suffer.

    Stockholm syndrome? She is isn’t suffering from Stockholm syndrome. She is enjoying a beautiful childhood that was filled with love. Her mother did her no harm. I would have done the same thing.

    Is it a good mother to be in jail right now?

    There are so many custodial-embattled parents out there that did not kidnap their children. They made the decision to act in the best interests of their child and co-parent.

    So why what was so different between Dorothy Lee Barnett’s custody case and that of so many other custodial embattled parents? The answer, Dorothy Lee Barnett is in the group of parents that will kidnap their child, most likely out of anger and revenge toward her former spouse.

    The emotional harm to the child and now adult child is significant as the research indicates.

    You’re entitled to your opinion but you appear to be a bit myopic or narrow-minded when it comes to this issue. Parental Kidnapping is one of the most horrific crimes against a child. That’s why Dorothy Lee Barnett is in jail and awaiting trial today.
