What is Parental Alienation Syndrome?
Parental Alienation Syndrome (or PAS) is a condition that some divorcees develop after a traumatic or upsetting separation. The defining characteristic of PAS is that a parent tries to coerce his or her child into favoring one parent over the other. This type of manipulation can oftentimes result in a confused and conflicted child who feels alienated from both parents.
If you or someone you know is in the midst of a difficult divorce, you should seek the assistance of an experienced divorce attorney. Contact the Denton divorce lawyers of Alexander & Associates at 972-420-6560 to discuss your case.
Do You Have PAS?
If you think you may be exhibiting signs of Parental Alienation Syndrome, ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you have your child act as a middle-man between you and your ex-spouse?
- Do you ask your child to spy or report to you about the private life of your ex?
- Do you sometimes lie to your child to make your ex look bad?
- Do you lie to your ex to prevent him or her from spending time with your child?
- Do you use your child as a means of guilting or worrying your ex unnecessarily?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, you may be suffering from Parental Alienation Syndrome. The reality of PAS is that it will not only psychologically damage your child, but it will also affect your ability to cope and recover from your divorce. If you believe you are exhibiting symptoms of PAS, you should consider consulting a family therapist about your behavior.
