Those of us who are concerned about the detrimental effects of the PAS on children and on the alienated parent must become armed with the overwhelming indications from all aspects of our culture that confirm the child’s instinctive love for both parents. We cannot be deterred from lifting the blindness to the existence of the PAS of the professionals who intervene in child custody. All aspects of our culture—- from music to art to literature to psychology—- reveal that you have to be carefully taught to hate and fear a parent.

Why PAS Children Could Pass a Lie Detector Test

By Linda Gottlieb, LMFT, LCSW-r

PAS children BELIEVE the frivolous, malicious, deprecating accusations they concoct against their targeted/alienated parent. I am absolutely convinced that they can pass any lie detector test without batting an eyelash. Just observe them and you will agree.

Why is this so? To begin with, these children must create accusations in order to justify their unwarranted deprecation and rejection of their targeted parent. Because it is so anti-instinctual to hate and reject a parent, a rationale must be invented. The rationale becomes a delusional system that justifies how they maltreat, marginalize, and reject their alienated parent. This is just one reason why alienation is such a terrible form of psychological child abuse: creating a delusional system is a form of psychosis! Think about it: would it not be palatable for a child to reject an abusive parent? But to the contrary, how do you justify rejecting a competent, loving, supportive, and involved parent?

The question then becomes why PAS children are so susceptible to the brainwashing of the alienating parent. This is also a no-brainer: it is virtually impossible for a child to reject and contradict a parent upon whom they are so dependent. Sometimes the alienating parent is the nonresidential parent. In those situations, these children are bribed for their allegiance. What child can resist the offer for all sorts of electronic goodies, the biggest being YOUR OWN AUTOMOBILE!

Let us not forget the sagacious comments of Christopher Barden, Ph.D., J.D., LP, (2006) psychologist and attorney, having received two national research awards in psychology and a law degree with honors from Harvard Law School:

“There can be no credible controversy about the power of parents to influence children.” Dr. Barden further challenged every professional who intervenes in child custody cases to recognize their

“critical obligation to carefully review the influence of parents, therapists or other adults on the attitudes, beliefs and memories of children.”

Victimized Children Suffer Throughout Their Lives

How difficult are the lives of adult victims of parental alienation? Research reveals the depth and extent  of cruelty inflicted on children by the alienator parent.  In their psychotic campaign to degrade and denigrate the targeted parent the alienator inflicts damage from which the child may never recover. It seems so ironic that the parent who was so intent on being perceived as the “good parent”  actually is guilty of criminal child abuse as damaging as the physical or sexual abuse so often  handled by family courts.  It is just less visible. Parental alienation  is like a mythical creature that consumes children’s souls.

Surviving Parental Alienation Syndrome One Day at a Time with Love, Faith, & Hope


Parental Alienation Syndrome is a tragedy for every member of a family: the children who are denied access to a warm, loving, biological parent; the alienated parent who is denied a relationship with his/her child(ren); the alienating parent who often suffers a mental illness which allows them to feel righteous and justified in their actions; as well as the extended family and friends caught up in the turmoil.

For the alienated parent, he/she is experiencing a heart-breaking, gut-wrenching situation, often leaving him/her feeling isolated and hopeless like he/she is the only person in the world that this is happening to. This parent will begin to question him/herself in everything that they do, or worse, blame themselves. He/she is probably unaware of the phenomenon known as Parental Alienation Syndrome or P.A.S. Unfortunately, this is a relatively unknown phenomenon in our society. More unfortunate is that this is a steadily increasing problem that more…
