Parental alienation is a common concern for many parents

When parents get divorced, the situation can be very stressful for children. After the divorce, the children will generally live with one parent and the other parent will have visitation rights. However, matters may get worse if one parent does something to prevent the children from maintaining regular contact with the other parent. That is commonly known as "parental alienation" and it is a common problem that many parents face after divorce.

There are different ways in which one parent can alienate a child from the other parent. For example, one parent may make derogatory remarks about the other parent or make it impossible for a child to be in touch with the other parent. Sometimes, parents take advantage of the fact that children are susceptible to various kinds of emotional influences and they use that fact to get back at their estranged spouse or partner.

In addition to speaking negatively, there are also other ways in which one parent can alienate a child from the other parent. For example, one parent may buy new toys or pets for the child in order to keep that child's attention away from the other parent. Similarly, making promises about fun activities during the next visit is another example. There are various other ways, but the purpose of such actions is often to create a negative feeling in the child about the other parent.
