Very recently and as politely as possible I challenged the behaviours of some individuals who were clearly enabling the parental alienation of my children. Their response shocked me. One of their many points was that they understood parental alienation, however they reminded me that when a couple separates it is important to remain impartial.
I have reflected on this point and given it a lot of thought. Nowadays we are encouraged to not just stop turning a blind eye to such things as sexism, racism and any other form of abuse, but to actually challenge it. However it saddens me to think that individuals, that might even have a gut feeling that something is amiss, adamantly stand by the argument that it is more important to remain impartial. This is something I simply do not understand.
