  • "It is a war that children cannot win or defend themselves against. It is a war where the "enemy" (the alienating parent) is someone whom the children dearly love and depend upon for their needs to be met. For children, PAS is about loss, insecurity, fear, confusion, sadness, hopelessness and despair. In fact, some experts consider PAS to be a form of child abuse because: •it robs children of the security provided by the bond they once shared with the targeted parent •it embeds in children’s minds falsehoods about the targeted parent that are injurious to their own psyche and their sense of self (i.e., "Mom/Dad never really loved you"; "Mom/Dad is dangerous"; "Mom/Dad has done inappropriate things to you"). •the process of aligning children against the targeted parent often involves threats, lies, manipulations, deprivation and even physical abuse -

  • OK so could my DH's daughters mom have it? We ask her every weekend if we can see/have her and she always says no. But she said DH's brother can have her anytime they want cause they earned it and we havent earned that right.
