What Is Parental Alienation?

Parental alienation is  defined as when one parent's relationship with their child is damaged by the other parent.  It can have devastating consequences.

Many lawyers and psychologists have known about parental alienation for decades. But for political and personal reasons there are others who deny that such a thing exists.If you want to know more check out this

Unfortunately, this legal and professional debate has led to a misunderstanding of what parental alienation is.

As a result, many people do not have the words to describe or label their experiences or to understand what they see in other people. This makes it difficult to find a solution.

First, let's distinguish between the terms "Parental Alienation Syndrome" and “parental alienation”. Parental alienation involves behavior that parents engage in to harm or damage the relationship between the child and the other parent.

What is alienating behavior?

The alienating parent can defend the other parent in front of the child to win their loyalty. Either the parent can reconstruct past events to make the child believe terrible and untrue things about the other parent, or prevent the other parent from spending time with the child.

One parent may also over-intrude on parenting time with the children (for example, texting frequently) or make false accusations of abuse in order to limit their time with the children indefinitely. The result is that the child can become highly negative towards that parent. .

Unfortunately, many people who are not affected by parental alienation do not see it as a problem affecting them. This is considered a private matter or as a matter to be dealt with in court.

We need more research on alienating behavior and we need more public awareness on this issue to protect children and families.
