The Toxic Consequences Of Parental Alienation
When emotions boil over in a child custody dispute, it can bring out the worst in otherwise good parents. One of the most toxic examples of this tendency to lash out is parental alienation.
The alienation of one parent by another can take many forms, from the subtle to the overt. A few examples include:
- A parent making denigrating comments about the other parent in front of the children
- A parent giving children the choice of spending time with the other parent, rather than simply complying with legal orders
- A parent instructing children to pry into the private life of the other parent
If your children exhibit unexplained signs of anger toward you or seem to experience guilt due to visiting you, they may be acting under the influence of parental alienation. In such cases, our attorneys act swiftly and decisively to stop the harm this behavior inflicts on children and on the child-parent bond.
In some cases, parents do not realize they are alienating their children from the other parent. Sadly, some parents level false accusations.
