Submitted by Jamesnoble on Wed, 02/08/2023 - 20:09

Parental Alienation
As modern family structures have become increasingly complex in today’s society, so too has the threat of parental alienation. Parental alienation occurs when one parent influences the child against the other parent.

This usually happens when both parties are seeing the children on a regular basis but are separated and no longer living together.

Unfortunately, in most cases, this kind of emotional manipulation is unknown to both the child and the parent before it becomes a serious issue.

During a breakdown of a relationship or marriage, an individual’s life (both personal and public) are usually retracted from the other party. This can be a strange time for some people, as many parties spend years intentionally or unintentionally knowing the whereabouts and doings of the other party.

As this knowledge ceases quite suddenly, it is not uncommon for one party to try and find out what the other is up to. This does not necessarily have to be done with sinister motives, but it is important to understand the fine line when it comes to privacy.
