Q & A – Do alienating parents use perspecticide?

Yes, alienating parents can use perspecticide as a tool in their efforts to alienate a child from the other parent. By systematically controlling and distorting the child’s perception of the other parent and their relationship, the alienating parent can create a false reality for the child, causing them to lose their own perspective and sense of self.

Some common tactics used by alienating parents to achieve perspecticide may include:

  • Denigrating the other parent: The alienating parent may consistently denigrate the other parent in front of the child, making derogatory comments or presenting a distorted picture of the other parent’s behavior or character.
  • Isolating the child: The alienating parent may limit the child’s contact with the other parent, and may discourage or forbid the child from talking about the other parent or spending time with them.
  • Controlling information: The alienating parent may control the information that the child receives about the other parent, presenting a distorted or incomplete picture of reality.
  • Creating a false narrative: The alienating parent may create a false narrative about the other parent and their relationship, presenting the other parent as abusive, neglectful, or otherwise unworthy of the child’s affection.

Over time, these tactics can cause the child to develop a distorted and negative perception of the other parent, leading to alienation and a breakdown in the parent-child relationship.

It’s important to note that the use of perspecticide by an alienating parent can have serious and long-lasting effects on a child’s mental health and well-being, and can contribute to a range of emotional and behavioral problems. If you suspect that a child is being subjected to perspecticide or parental alienation, it’s important to seek the advice of a qualified mental health professional or family law attorney.
