Parental alienation is emotional child abuse!
It is when one parent manipulates a child’s mind to sever all ties between the child and the other parent in order to destroy that other parent. The pressure on the child to be loyal to the interfering parent becomes too great and the child gives up, totally rejecting the target parent, and being taught to hate that parent. The emotional damage this creates for the child can last a lifetime. It is like domestic violence against both the child and the parent with whose custodial time has been interfered with, just the bruises do not show.
Our current family court system is failing these kids. Courts often empower the alienating parent due to their inability to recognize and respond to these situations accordingly. False child abuse allegations by the parent interfering with the custodial time of the other parent, can seal the fate of the relationship. Attorneys, judges, mediators, mental health providers, school counselors and officials can compound the situation by their failure to recognize that they are being manipulated, as well. Court orders are ignored by the interfering parent and do not give the police direction on how to handle these types of situations.
