- A sudden, prolonged change in attitude between child and parent
- Extreme loyalty to the alienating parent
- Rejection or suspicion of the alienated parent
- School problems
- Trouble adjusting to different home environments
- Over-identifying or repeating self-destructive behavior of the alienating parent
- Blaming, shaming by the children and a demand for the alienated parent to admit their wrongs to the child
- Confusion about things that were formerly clear
