Parental alienation

Divorce is hard enough on children without parents actively seeking to destroy what’s remaining of the relationship with the opposite parent. “Often we think that this is a problem between two parents who cannot get along, and it’s not: it’s typically one-sided.” If you know of an ex that is actively trying to involve children in the divorce, these TED Talks could be useful for you…
