Parental Alienation

Parental alienation occurs when a child of parents going through a divorce expresses unjustified hatred or strong dislike of one parent.  These feelings are often influenced by negative comments made by the other parent.  Most parents are concerned with the best interests of the child — and it is never in the child’s best interests to disparage the other parent.

Signs of Parental Alienation:

  • Your child acts differently around one parent
  • Your child “protects” the other parent
  • Your child starts to really rebel against the visiting party and their family
  • You are being refused access to school or medical records and normal activities
  • One parent refuses to be flexible with the visitation schedule in order to respond to the child’s needs

These behaviors whether verbal or non-verbal, cause a child to be mentally manipulated or bullied into believing a loving parent is the cause of all their problems, and/or the enemy, to be feared, hated, disrespected and/or avoided.Being alienated from your role as a parent can be a slow, long, painful ride.
