Parental Alienation: How Many Times Do I Have To Keep Bringing this Up??

I can’t even tell you  how much I want to just RANT right now.  Instead, let’s just put it all out there this way.

From Psychology Today, June 28, 2011 (citation is below):

“Research with “adult children” of parental alienation syndrome (that is, adults who believe that when they were children one parent turned them against the other parent) confirms that being exposed to parental alienation represents a form of emotional abuse. Furthermore, these adults reported that when they succumbed to the pressure and rejected one parent to please the other, the experience was associated with several negative long-term effects including depression, drug abuse, divorce, low self-esteem, problems with trusting, and alienation from their own children when they became parents themselves.”

Just to sum up:  If you are a custodial parent, and you undermine the parent time of or relationship of the children with the non-custodial parent, just because you do not like that person, YOU ARE A BAD PARENT.  I don’t care what kind of lies you tell yourself about how fantastic you are.  YOU ARE NOT.  Trying to eliminate a fit parent from a child’s life through bad-mouthing, bashing, and brain-washing is CHILD ABUSE.  And you are an ABUSER.  

And someone might end up taking you back to court on a petition to modify based upon parental alienation.

(some scholarly work that says you are a child abuser as well…)
