Parents who engage in parental alienation are often selfishly motivated, seeking to damage the relationship between the child and the other parent. If left undealt with, the consequences can be permanent. It is important to watch out for common signs of parental alienation, which include:

  • Asking the child to choose one parent over the other
  • Blaming the other parent for the divorce
  • Reacting with hurt when a child spends time with the other parent
  • Refusing to be flexible with visitation schedules
  • Revealing details about the divorce to the child
