Disclaimer - (This is not for abusive parents who have violated their child’s fundamental right for safety.)
This is for the vindictive parent who is hurting their child. They will bad mouth the other parent causing their kids to have to abandon the other parent. These children are robbed of the love and guidance the alienated parent brings to the table.
There may have been problems in the marriage. Unfortunate, but not a reason to put your children in the middle. Doing so will hurt their ability to love, possibly for life.
Mark offers suggestions to both parents and asks that they remember the slogan, “Best Interest of the Child.”
