It was a relief when I found Dr Childress and read his teachings. My son began to run from me as soon as he saw me, as if I was a danger or a threat. It bothered me so much and blamed myself. It must be me.. I searched for some explanation in the older “parental alienation’ blogs looking fro an answer. It was nice to find you Doctor Childress. You understood so perfectly and could explain what was setting my son off like that. Yes, and I can see the behavior of my Narc ex husband putting our son as the front guy taking the blame . You’re right Dr Childress his fathers behavior stays the same, and it was helpful to hear that. I noticed one parent in court snickering and enjoying watching his former wife upset about the change in the way her children treated her. He was so obviously one of the poison parents we wish we could change. He looked at me as if I was going to laugh along. He stopped laughing when he saw my expression.
