Thanks to a friend of the page Mike Sanford, who is a Paradise Cove survivor, we here at WWASP Survivors have obtained a copy of the WWASP Paradise Cove Parent Manual from the mid-90s. This manual is basically spin made by WWASP to parents to head off the inevitable complaints of abuse and mistreatment that they knew were going to be coming from the children.
WWASP knew that if they could warn parents these complaints were coming ahead of time, they could paint these legitimate grievances as lies and manipulation. You really have to read this to believe it. The level these child abusers were capable of sinking to in order to drive a wedge between parents and children is amazing and unconscionable, and unfortunately for many survivors and their families, this wedge remains to this day.
On another note, this document contains a good biography of Brain Vaifanua. Details of his past association with WWASP have been difficult to fully nail down. More subtly, this document contains proof that Paradise Cove was indeed a WWASP program, since Brian states he “accepted the position of Director of Paradise Cove.” If he owned the program, that statement doesn’t make any sense. Instead, it’s clear from that admission that Paradise Cove was owned by someone else, at least initially, probably WWASP or the Lichfields. This documents serves to further cement the connection between Paradise Cove, Brian Vaifanua, and WWASP, and eternally ties all three to the horrific human rights abuses of children that occurred there.
Check the whole document out for yourself.
