Parental alienation is a type of behavior that can result from high-conflict interpersonal relationships. In many cases, one of the parents will take actions to damage the relationship the other parent has with the child. Parental alienation can damage the child's mental or emotional well-being. The actions that the hostile or aggressive parent takes can be verbal or non-verbal.
Their purpose is to manipulate the child into believing that the other parent is the root of all of their problems or that he/she should be feared. If your child has been acting distant and you suspect the cause is parental alienation, speak with our divorce lawyers at once.
