People use use children as weapons to hurt others are emotionally immature. The only valid and legitimate reason for any kind of alienation is if the person is being abusive to the child or the childs life is being endangered. Any sort of anger or disagreement between adults NEVER excuses child alienation, whether it be with the other parent, grandparents or other relatives. Keeping a child from those who love the child is a huge disservice to the child.
Parental Alienation when a parent bashes the other parent & his/her extended family to a child with the intent of having the child cut them out of their life. Parental Alienation Syndrome when the child has begun to do so with or without help from alienating parent.
Parental alienation quote - He never tried or wanted to cut us out. He wanted to spend time with us. The "mother" wouldnt allow it because no one wanted anything to do with her. Everyone remembers and knows it including the child.
