Q & A – How to protect myself from the PA?

Protecting yourself from a parental alienator can be a challenging and emotionally draining process. Here are some steps you can take to protect yourself:

  1. Document everything: Keep a record of all communication, such as emails, text messages, and phone calls, and any behavior or actions that you believe are part of the alienation. This can be important evidence if you need to take legal action.
  2. Stay calm: It can be difficult, but try to remain calm and composed in your interactions with the alienator. Avoid responding with anger or frustration, as this can escalate the situation.
  3. Seek support: Find a support system of friends, family, or a therapist who can provide emotional support and guidance.
  4. Consult with a lawyer: If the alienation is severe, you may need to consult with a lawyer who is experienced in family law. They can help you understand your legal options and provide guidance on how to proceed.
  5. Focus on your child: Even if the alienation is difficult, it is important to continue to prioritize your child’s needs and maintain a healthy relationship with them. Avoid speaking negatively about the alienator in front of your child and continue to show love and support.
  6. Consider mediation: In some cases, mediation can be a helpful way to resolve conflicts and improve communication between parents. A trained mediator can help facilitate productive discussions and find solutions that work for both parties.

It is important to remember that protecting yourself from a parental alienator can be a difficult and long process. It is important to be patient, persistent, and seek out the support you need to cope with the emotional toll of the situation.
