When facing divorce with children, the term divorce pertains to the parents. Children are often put in the middle by parents causing a tremendous amount of conflict for the children. Blame can be a large part of divorce however, children are not to blame. But when a parent speak adversely about the other parent with further negative impact against the ex spouse, parental alienation is occurring.
Parental Alienation adversely affects children by:
- Prohibiting the child to make up his mind about how much love they have for a parent
- Damages a child’s relationship with a parent
- Causes anger within the child
- Poisons the child with unnecessary issues
- Forces child to take sides
- Prohibiting the child from loving one parent
Our courts are recognizing this occurrence with negative consequences when a child custody and visitation case is at issue. Our courts recognize children cannot thrive in a divorce environment if a parent is alienating the child from the ex spouse.
