What is a flying monkey in parental alienation

In the context of parental alienation, a “flying monkey” is a term used to describe a person, often a family member or friend, who is manipulated or recruited by an alienating parent to participate in the alienation campaign against the other parent. These “flying monkeys” may be used to spread false information, spy on the targeted parent, or otherwise reinforce the alienation. This term is derived from the classic children’s story “The Wizard of Oz,” where the Wicked Witch of the West uses flying monkeys to do her bidding. In the context of parental alienation, the term “flying monkey” is used to highlight the manipulative and destructive nature of the behavior.
