Children who have a close, loving relationship with their father throughout their lives do better than those who do not. That is a well known, documented fact.
What then, prompts a mother — who claims to love her children unequivocally — to use those children as a weapon to hurt her ex? What type of loving, caring mother thinks more about what she is feeling (anger, hurt, hate) than what is best for her children?
And what is being done in today’s society to protect those children from their own parent? Child abuse is child abuse — whether it be physical or emotional.
Sometimes “Mom knows best” just isn’t true …… and sadly, it’s the children who suffer.
