Mind control Poisonous pedagogy

Poisonous pedagogy

Poisonous pedagogy is mind control applied to toddlers and infants in the form of coercive “education”.

In 1977 Katharina Rutschky collected 600 pages of documents on child raring from 3 centuries. [12] The techniques and beliefs characteristic for poisonous pedagogy were later “rediscovered” to be effective for changing beliefs in adults when Lifton (Brainwashing in China) investigated brainwashing in POWs in Korea and Chinese thought reform.

The authors recommend traumatizing toddlers, because it is effective in breaking down resistance and mental functions and because “educators” need not fear revenge. Adults won’t remember what happened to them at an early age, they argue. [13] [14]

Making children watch beheadings, secessions, “teaching” them fear of death and illnesses, guilt and shame trips, harsh punishment, withholding love, rewards and affection, forced confessions and humiliations “can lead to a new world in 20 years” (J.B. Schupp, 1667, in[12])

Teaching submission and breaking the will of a child in the first year of life has been universally recommended in these documents. It was widely believed that children are born with “bad” traits like willfulness, wickedness, egotism, impurity, immorality, “sinfulness”, precociousness, smugness and a host of other projections. [12] These traits must be “driven out” by education and force, otherwise these traits will “torment their parents”. Own thinking or judgment is discouraged or even denied.[12]

A child was seen as starting out at a savage level, uncivilized, and must be shaped, tamed and molded to “fit in” or to develop superior qualities of civilization. In reality the rigorous training served the narcissistic needs of parents and preserved power structures in religion and society. [11]

The procedures proposed by pedagogy to remove “weak” traits and train “strength” (which is a way of rationalizing torture and projective identification) were often sadistic and included

  • making the toddler wait for food, or starving while seeing others eat
  • corporal punishment
  • social isolation
  • withdrawal of primary attachment figure
  • inflicting fear by telling scaring stories
  • threats and assaults
  • humiliation and degradation generally accepted as “good” methods
  • cheating and lying

Does shared parenting by separated parents affect the adjustment of young children?

The changing family roles and evidence that most infants form attachment relationships with both of their parents have sparked a debate about parenting arrangements when the parents of infants and toddlers separate. Misunderstanding of attachment theory and the available empirical evidence has obscured rather than clarified evidence-based decision-making. In this report, I closely examine the five studies most frequently referenced in this context and show what they do and do not tell us about the ways in which children’s adjustment can be promoted when their parents separate. Consistent with attachment theory, the evidence suggests that children benefit when parenting plans allow them to maintain meaningful and positive relationships with both of their parents

Adult report of childhood exposure to parental alienation at different developmental time periods

The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between exposure to Parental Alienation (PA) at different developmental time periods and psychological maltreatment. Three hundred and sixty‐one adults in Chieti, Italy completed an anonymous and confidential paper and pencil survey regarding their childhood exposure to twenty PA behaviours across three developmental time periods as well as a measure of psychological maltreatment by each parent. Results revealed that exposure to PA at each time period was significantly associated with psychological maltreatment. Moreover, the number of time periods of exposure to PA (from 0 to 3) was associated with psychological maltreatment. This was true for PA by mothers and PA by fathers. Implications for policy and practice are discussed.

Practitioner points

  • Mental health professionals can use the results of this study to guide their intervention efforts
  • Co‐parenting educators can incorporate these results into their routine efforts to help parents be aware of PA and its effects
  • Targeted parents can use these findings to make the case for timely legal and mental health interventions

Parental Alienation Syndrome: A Family Therapy

The text serves as an excellent introduction to the reader who is unfamiliar with the PAS construct. Supporters of PAS will be emboldened by the gravitas of family experiences and their emotional impact on the reader, whereas critics of PAS are unlikely to be swayed by Gottlieb’s lines of argument. Regardless of one’s beliefs about PAS, however, Gottlieb makes a compelling argument for the “‘condition’ of a child being lost to 1 parent due to malicious programming by the other parent.” Professionals who have ever worked with children and families undergoing custody disputes will find this a thought-provoking text that invites self-contemplation and further exploration of the PAS concept.

The Bright Thing in the Sky

A child’s rejection of a normal-range and affectionally available parent following a divorce.

The attachment system is the brain system governing all aspects of love and bonding throughout the lifespan, including grief and loss.

The child”s rejection of a normal-range and affectionally available parent is an attachment-related pathology.

Q: How does the attachment system become turned off?

“The deactivation of attachment behavior is a key feature of certain common variants of pathological mourning” (Bowlby, 1980, p. 70)

Okay, then. So we’re looking at a version of “pathological mourning” surrounding the divorce.

Q: How does pathological mourning develop?

“Disturbances of personality, which include a bias to respond to loss with disordered mourning, are seen as the outcome of one or more deviations in development that can originate or grow worse during any of the years of infancy, childhood and adolescence.” (Bowlby, 1980, p. 217)

Okay, so we’re looking at a “disturbance of personality.” And we just continue to work it out from there.

Notice that in less than a minute of diagnostic inquiry, the pathology of “parental alienation” is defined as a form of disordered mourning involving personality pathology.

Dr. Craig Childress: Attachment Based "Parental Alienation" (AB-PA)

The pathology of “parental alienation” is NOT a defined construct in clinical psychology.

AB-PA is a defined construct. 

An attachment-based model of “parental alienation” (AB-PA) – as defined in Foundations – is an explanatory application of standard and established constructs and principles from professional psychology to a set of symptoms.  That’s called diagnosis.

Q:  What is the sun?

A:  It’s that bright thing in the sky over there.

Q:  Yes, I know.  But what is it, what is the sun?

A:  I just told you.  It’s that bright thing in the sky.

“That bright thing in the sky” is NOT a professional-level definition of the sun.

Definition: The sun is a dense cloud of hydrogen gas that is so dense that the pressure exerted by the pull of its gravity is fusing the hydrogen atoms into helium (and ultimately into denser elements) and is releasing great amounts of energy in…

Understanding Stages of Grief applied to Parents Affected by Parental Child Abduction / Alienation / Retention

ABP World Group - Parental Abduction Recovery & Kidnapping Recovery

June 23, 2016


“The death of a child is indisputably one of the most incredibly horrible tragedies one can imagine. Whether by sudden accidental circumstance, or by a more lengthy cause as in illness, the loss of a child is undeniably painful to experience. Painful to the parents, parents to the family, and painful to anyone related to the child. Never knowing the laughter of that child again or the tears, the joys and the accomplishments is a pain no parent should ever have to endure, and yet it happens. No one might be to blame. It can just happen”. (Tim Line)

Imagine a similar pain and the same sense of loss, with one exception-the parent is very much aware that the child is alive.

Parental Alienation PAS

The effects of Parental Alienation, Parental Child Abduction and retention are very similar to the loss of a child in some other way…

Off-putting relationships: the essentials of Child Alienation. By Nick Child

Berger and Wyse’s custardy-battle cartoon is an exception that proves the rule. There is no room for humour in the distress and tribal warfare of high conflict family separations.
No one would choose this if they could avoid it. I t is no fun for families or for those
who ride the wild waters of family separation to help them. Unless you’re only in it to make money, life jackets are essential.
Parental separation is now shown to be worse for children than is parental death (Otowa, 2014). Parental Alienation is a real and epidemic global pattern that affects society as a w
hole, not just individuals, couples and families (Harman & Biringen 2016). Yet by-
standing and ignorance is the default for those on the sidelines (von Friesen 2012).
