Suddenly, your once-loving and affectionate child seems to fear and, in some cases, despise you.
Parental alienation occurs often, but not always, in the context of divorce and custody battles.
No one knows how many children are exposed to parental alienation or show signs of the parental alienation syndrome, but we do know that it can happen to mothers as well as fathers, to custodial parents as well as non-custodial parents and to kids as young as toddlers or as old as teens.
Tonight I went out with the girls and I told them I was going to write this post so they helped me come up with some good ones! So here we go: PIWTPITT 25 Rules for Parents of Daughters (because as I was making this list it seemed to me that I can screw up my daughter easier than my son so I needed more rules): 1.
She might end up lonely at times, but at least she won't be a doormat. Teach your daughter that "fish lips" photos are never appropriate and never attractive. Teach your daughter to value herself enough to defend herself - physically and verbally. "Boys come and go, but girlfriends are forever." Still true. Teach your daughter that having her underwear and half her ass hanging out the back of her jeans is not attracting anyone substantial nor does it make her look smart - even in the library. Teach your daughter that smart girls get further in life than slutty girls. Teach your daughter to walk away from the teen magazines. Encourage her to get out and see the world, live on her own and figure out who she is and what she wants in a partner before she settles down. Teach your daughter that there's nothing wrong with staying home on a Friday night and reading a good book, but try to get her to read more than just Chick Lit. This book really empowers women to spot danger signals.
Get a therapist that knows Parental Alienation involved and be sure to have an attorney with that experience ready to help you should you need it.
Sounds like if not stopped your ex will alienate your son.Formerly beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents are now shunned. Your child vehemently denies being influenced by your ex.And your child doesn't want to attend important family events such as weddings, reunions, even funerals. When you note that he is using words and phrases that appear to parrot the other parent, your child dismisses you.This means the only measuring stick for what is true is themselves.The resulting attitude is arrogance, something of which the world already has too much.She really can do anything - except maybe use the Men's Restroom.
