Stop PAS Billboards in Houston

From ABC13.com

Billboards in area hope to raise awareness of parent alienation

ABC13 Eyewitness News
(02/15/05 - HOUSTON) New billboards in Houston are a reminder of the tragic death of a Katy surgeon allegedly shot and killed by his own 10-year-old son.

Some psychiatrists believe what's unofficially known as "Parental Alienation Syndrome" may have led to doctor Rick Lohstroh's murder last August. His 10-year-old son is still in juvenile custody.

Parental Alienation Syndrome, or PAS, is when a bitter parent poisons a child against the other parent, usually in cases of divorce. Now, several of Lohstroh's friends have placed billboards on Westheimer in west Houston and in Midtown.

The caption reads: "Don't turn your kids against their mommy or their daddy."

They are hoping to raise awareness about PAS. But it is still not recognized as a formal disorder by the American Psychiatric Association.
