Divorce can be difficult to go through. This is particularly true when you have children.
One thing that can make divorce even more difficult is parental alienation. Here are some signs to look out for if you think it is happening to you.
Your former spouse shares too many details
One sign that parental alienation is occurring is that your former spouse is frequently sharing details of the divorce with your children. While it may be necessary to explain some things to them, there are many details that are not necessary to share. This can be especially true if those details paint you specifically in a bad light.
Your children’s attitude changes
Another sign that parental alienation is taking place is that your children’s attitudes towards you have changed without any clear reason. If your children have suddenly become upset with you or are frequently angry with you for no apparent reason, then parental alienation could be taking place. Additionally, your children may begin to spend less time with you or try to find reasons not to visit you at all. You may also find that your children take your spouse’s side, even when they do not know the full story. They may even believe false information to be true.
Parental alienation can be a difficult thing to go through, especially when divorce is difficult enough on its own. By being aware of the signs you will be better able to take action in the event that parental alienation is happening to you.
