Hostile Aggressive Parenting

Hostile Aggressive Parenting and Parental Alienating often go hand-in-hand.

Hostile Aggressive Parents

Most children want good relationships with their parents – whether biological or adoptive. This is important in happy families, and even more important during divorce, separation or a family crisis. Hostile or aggressive parenting is child abuse!

Hostile aggressive parents interfere with the relationship of a child with the other parent or with a guardian. Such interference could include using emotional blackmail, manipulation, or disabling communication between a child and the alienated parent.

Hostile-aggressive parenting can apply to any adult who cares for any child. Interfering with a healthy relationship between a child and a parent or guardian can harm a child. Family court systems around the world have no standard definitions or criteria to guide lawyers and judges as to which parenting behaviors should be regarded as child abuse or maltreatment.

Hostile-aggressive parenting is common. Does anyone you know:

  1. make children change their surnames?
  2. criticize a parent in the presence of the child?
  3. encourage a child to defy an alienated parent?
  4. manipulate a child’s feelings of guilt and sympathy?
  5. use a child as a weapon against an alienated parent?
  6. claim falsely that a child does not want to speak to an alienated parent?
  7. instruct a child to not respond to communications from an alienated parent?  [Source:  systemiccoaching.com ]
