Parental Alienation is without a doubt child abuse & destructive up through adulthood. If there is not a true healing process the connection between that parent & their child will be difficult at best throughout the child’s life. If one parent is a truly violent person AGAINST THE CHILD, then you have cause. However, your in ability to get along or your dislike, your revenge against the other parent or using your children as pawns in the greatest chess game, this is the destruction of their DNA who they were intended to become!!!
