Divorced Parent: Do You Alienate Your Child from the Other Parent?

Parent Alienation - children and divorceI have seen some divorce parents consciously distance their children from the other parent? Such actions may only be justified when there is a genuine concern about the children’s emotional or physical safety when with the other parent. But in the absence of past domestic violence, drug or alcohol abuse, physical, sexual, or emotional child abuse, alienating children from the other parent will never bring any good.

Other parents may subconsciously alienate children from the other parent. But whether there is a deliberate move or not to alienate children from the other parent, the same thing will happen. Children will always suffer. Remember children generally fare best when they have the emotional support and ongoing involvement of both parents and parental alienation must be put to an end.

The good news is we can prevent the devastating effects of parental alienation. The key is to begin recognizing the symptoms of parental alienation. After reading the list below, don’t get discouraged when you notice that some of your own behaviors have been alienating. Instead, let the list help sensitize you to how you are behaving and what you are saying to your children.

Now that you have read the above list, don’t get discouraged when you notice that some of your own behaviors have been alienating. Just think and internalize that children generally fare best when they have the emotional support and ongoing involvement of both parents. Therefore, parental alienation must be put to end. Both parents have to work as co-parents.

This is currently happening to me. My x is not allowing parenting time. Is not allowing me access to our sons school or medical records when in court he admitted that he does not take the children to the doctor his mother does. He did not recall that our oldest son is allergic to Pencillin.

He clams he was not the one to take him to the doctor. I love my boys they are my life I will do anything for them. Now he is doing this.

I am a parent being alienated because of my soon to be ex-husband. I have always been there for my kids and my husband was never involved in anything they did and now since I have filed for divorce and I had to get a ppo, he took the kids and is telling them everything about the divorce and criticizing me in front of them. Argues in front them to me. They scream at me and he allows it. He has them hang up the phone on me. They are 11 and 9. I don’t know what I can do. I have filed a court order for visiting but I still think he won’t let me have them. What can I do if that happens?
