This brainwashing is an integral part of the reason why certain children carry irrational hatred toward one of their parents, a prime indication these children have been victimized by one of their parents through the process known as “Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS).”

Though there are several definitions of brainwashing, I find the following Wikipedia article especially helpful and applicable for children traumatized by PAS:

Brainwashing (also known as mind controlmenticidecoercive persuasionthought controlthought reform, and re-education) is the concept that the human mind can be altered or controlled by certain psychological techniques. Brainwashing is said to reduce its subjects’ ability to think critically or independently, to allow the introduction of new, unwanted thoughts and ideas into their minds,  as well as to change their attitudes, values and beliefs.”
