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…

Opposing Evil without Becoming It via @richardrohrofm

“Today, I offer a journal entry from Etty Hillesum (1914–1943), a young Jewish woman who was killed at Auschwitz. In her diary, she recreates a conversation with her friend, writer Klaas Smelik, about the hatred and bullying she saw within her own community: Klaas, all I really wanted to say is this: we have so much work to do on ourselves that we shouldn’t even be thinking of hating our so-called enemies. We are hurtful enough to one another as it is. And I don’t really know what I mean when I say that there are bullies and bad characters among our own people, for no one is really “bad” deep down. I should have liked to reach out to that [bully] with all his fears, I should have liked to trace the source of his panic, to drive him ever deeper into himself, that is the only thing we can do, Klaas, in times like these.” Source: https://email.cac.org/t/ViewEmail/d/62082DE5E9C4AC972540EF23F30FEDED/95BE6BBD9631A2EE6D5E5F9A8728A5A6
