Geerte Frenken talks to Protective Mother Lyra



Protective Mother Lyra lost parental rights of her 3 children to foster care when she attempted to get a restraining order against her abusive ex.

Protective Mother Lyra states: “I am a survivor of Domestic Violence and I have some disabilities, partially as a result of that. Unfortunately, the father of my two older kids has a mental health and drug abuse history. As a result of the abuse our marriage fell apart. My ex got full custody of the kids, even though he was living in a homeless shelter! I fought back and luckily ended up getting full custody. But my ex remained abusive, so I got a restraining order against him. When CPS got involved, he was awarded full custody of the children again! It didn’t last long though. After a few months our kids were placed in foster care.

In the midst of all of this I got pregnant of my 3rd child with a new man who tried to help me in these turbulent times. Unfortunately he couldn’t handle becoming a father and his life took a turn for the worst. He started doing drugs and became abusive. So here I was trapped yet again with an abuser. When I tried to stop him from hitting my child and he attacked me, I called the police and CPS got involved. I tried to get a restraining order but instead my youngest was placed in temporary foster care. My ex then was awarded full custody, but he lost it and our son was placed in foster care again.

So even though I was a loving mother who provided very well for my kids, I lost parental rights of my children to the system, because the fathers were abusive. All 3 children are in different homes, in different counties and have no contact with each other and I have no contact with any of them.

I started the Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families because no one in the system represents the Rights of Protective Mothers and our Children. Our organisation aims to take this to the Federal level and we assist Protective Mothers with Pro Se support.”

This CCN Live TV Interview is scheduled for February 18th, 2017 @ 3PM Eastern Time (21:00 CET)


So what is a Protective Mother? A Protective Mother tries to protect her child or children from their abusive father by many means necessary, which is an uphill battle in today’s corrupt global Family Court system that thrives on paternal entitlement. Maternal Deprivation at the hands of abusive fathers has reached pandemic proportions! However, Protective Mothers worldwide are uniting to fight for the right to keep their children in what could be called a new Civil Rights movement.

Professional Fine Artist and College Professor Geerte Frenken is a Protective Mother fighting for her court-abducted daughter Jasmijn. She is the host of the CCN Live TV show HELL IS FOR CHILDREN about the global plight of Protective Mothers and their children that airs every Saturday at 3PM Eastern Time (21:00 Central European Time).
