You might be an alienating parent if you:

  • Allow the child to talk negatively or disrespectfully about the other parent.
  • Set up tempting alternatives that would interfere with the other parent’s time with the child.
  • Give the child decision-making power about spending time with the other parent when no choice exists.
  • Act hurt and betrayed if the child shows any positive feelings towards the other parent.
  • Use the child as a courier, messenger or spy.
  • Ask the child to lie to the other parent or betray the parent’s trust in the child.
  • Share the details of the divorce settlement with the child.
  • Go without dinner and then tell the child the other parent didn’t give you enough money for everyone to eat dinner.
  • Let the other parent worry needlessly about the child.
  • Infringe on the other parent’s time with excessive phone calls or scheduled activities.
