Divorce can be one of the most emotional and tumultuous experiences of a person’s life, especially for children. While children may naturally tend to lash out or act peculiarly as they attempt to cope with the change, some emotional responses and behaviors can be the product of one parent’s intentional manipulation of the child to reject or even hate the other. Known as Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS), this type of influence is often used to gain an upper hand in child custody disputes and cut the other parent out of the child’s life.

PAS is a relationship dysfunction in which a child is led to consistently insult, belittle, or reject one parent by the other with the intention of sabotaging their bond. Manipulated children are often conditioned to believe that the targeted parent is unworthy of a relationship, causing them to distance themselves and in severe cases completely cut off communication. While PAS can be sometimes be reversed through counseling, cases which are not promptly identified or go ignored can potentially lead to lifelong animosity between a child and parent.
Warning signs and symptoms of parental alienation include:
In certain cases, a child’s alienating behaviors can extend past a targeted parent towards their entire family. While these feelings may be strong, alienated children are rarely able to provide valid reasons for their hatred of the targeted parent. Fortunately, with a combination of understanding, documentation, psychology, and strong legal advocacy that exposes an alienating parent’s scheme, these types of feelings can be overcome.
