So Enablers, this is where you come in. An alienating parent relies upon individuals known as ‘enablers’ to support them in also turning on the alienated parent. An alienating parent all too often plays the ‘victim’ and in turn presents the alienated parent to you Enablers as the ‘villain’. For example, a short while ago I texted the mother of one of my children’s best friends. Prior to the separation I considered her a friend, someone that I saw often due to our children being best friends. I texted her simply asking for help in someway. I did not talk negatively about my ex, I simply stated that my ex was currently preventing me from having any contact with my children, despite there being Court Orders in place stating contact must take place. Her reply was that she was sorry for me, but she was unable to help as she did not want to upset my ex by being seen to help me.
This happens so often, I have heard it over and over again – Linda
