Strong Stepmom Awareness Campaign...The telltale sign of parental alienation is the child stating 'this is my idea, my Mother had nothing to do with my decision.' Why say it if it did not happen? Other mutual friends have told us and also a member of the ex's family told us this was constantly happening before and during the divorce...Pretending it did not happen does not help. Move forward with grace and dignity.
"Parental Alienation is about parents who place their own selfish needs above those of their defenseless children and in doing so, they deny them their right to love and be loved by both parents.” Dr. Reena Sommer (this is for real) I have seen it happen with my step-kid..... It's very very sad how evil her Mom is... Praying for her daily
Exactly....and the way my boys love thier step siblings/ they see no step just that they are FAMILY.... No the way things happen isn't always perfect but at some point it isn't about You or me it is only about them!! So very greatful I can call on thier step mom for help or support....or a random silly pic. Co-parenting not a job I asked for but one I got and will always love and treat them like my very own!!
BEST BOOK I'VE READ ON SUBJECT - The Author is an Expert on this awful form of Child Abuse......Adult Children of Parental Alienation Syndrome a must read. I just read this book on my last trip..could not put it down. I gained great insight on how the manipulating parent operates. So sad to read the sort of things they say and do to our children to make themselves feel better or in control:(
