parental alienationBy Julie Garrison

Special to

One would like to think that when a divorce proceeding has wrapped up, everyone is finally able to move on with their lives and stop looking back. Maybe this happens in Fantasy Land, but it almost never happens in the real world. 

An ex-wife will often vent anger to her children by berating their dad at every juncture. The children end up with an exponentially skewed impression of their father.

In her book "The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce," Judith S. Wallerstein writes about about the effects of divorce when an ex-wife vents to the children about the real or imagined shortcomings of their father.

"This is the kind of rage that can last for decades after divorce and it is the kind of anger that leaves lasting residue on a child’s personality," Wallerstein writes.

parental alienationThere are more than 500,000 children every year in divorced and separated families who have parents polarized by the issue of child custody.

Because of this conflict, many children are psychologically divided by behaviors that have three stages of adjustment: Visitation Resistance, Visitation Pleasure, and Visitation Confliction.

Joseph Goldberg is a parental alienation expert, family law consultant, and founder of the Canadian Symposium for Parental Alienation Syndrome. Alienated first as a child and then as a targeted parent in his divorce case, Goldberg is dedicated to his mission of educating mental health professionals, parents, and the public on the perils of parental alienation.

His latest article is titled "Parental Alienation and Children Exhibiting Visitation Refusal Behavior." Click here to download the full PDF of the article.

Milwaukee Divorce Lawyer

Dads seeking divorce advice frequently ask divorce lawyers about how to keep their ex-wives or soon-to-be-exes from saying negative things to the children about their father.

Many divorced parents will talk about the divorce case with their children, use the kids as messengers, or, in worse cases, fill their children's heads with lies about the other spouse in an attempt to turn the children against the targeted parent.

While there are legal steps you can take to prevent your children from being exposed to the details of your case, practically speaking, these options may not produce the best results.
