Parental Alienation Hurts

Parental Alienation Hurts 0

In Parental Alienation (sometimes called Parent Alienation) one parent intentionally alienates their children from the other parent. It is emotionally abusive not only to the alienated parent--it is also abusive to the children.

What we are talking about here is different from normal estrangement that might occur between children and their parents because of expected stages of development or actual bad acts of the parents they are rejecting. It is a distortion of the intentions, attitudes and behaviors of the alienated parent.

There are more abused men than you might think and there are more abusive women than you might think. 

The idea that women can't hurt men is a cultural myth.

Just because women on average are smaller than men on average doesn't mean women can't hurt men. It turns out -- size doesn't matter. (Well, to be more specific, size matters somewhat, but it isn't everything.)

A woman can hurt her male partner in all sorts of ways: psychologically, financially, spiritually, legally, physically, and sexually.
