As as alienated parent for over 27 years I know only too well how friends and some family members can drop you when much-needed for fear of the consequences from the alienating parent.
One minute you think you have a support network then suddenly all goes quiet. One so called friend even admitted that she was afraid of the material damage my ex husband would inflict on her property!!! It is the hidden emotional damage one has to look out for.
Things are very different now and I have trusted friends and a great support network all who understand the dynamics and emotional and physical damage an alienating parent can inflict on their partner and children/grandchildren.
Parental alienation has come out of the woodwork and there are several support groups, forums, websites and blogs available.
NAAP are also running a podcast on the 20th December, click here for details:-
So don’t be alone and pick up the phone and talk to one of the support network.
