Parental Alienation is a significant legal issue. Unfortunately, it remains a prevalent feature of many family law cases. It intent and effect is to destroy the present and future relationship between a child and the alienated parent.
I personally know the pain of parental alienation. It can be a lifetime of grief that you learn to live with but never get over.
Separated or divorced parents should love their child or children more than they dislike one another.
Christian parents, whether divorced or separated, should respect and honor their divine parental obligation to raise a child up in the fear, admonition and love of the LORD instead of in the atmosphere of hostility, disrespect, disdain, verbal disparages and dishonoring of one another. Christian parents should love God and their children more than they dislike each other.
“But Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
“And, you fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.”
According God’s divine plan and purposes for the male and female, it takes a coalition of a man and a woman to raise children and if one of the parents (mainly the mother), is always speaking prejudicially and negatively about the other parent (mainly the father), it is the child that is the biggest loser. This fact is well documented and witnessed to by millions of children from broken homes as well as by renowned sociologists, psychologists and counselors all over the world.
Except in extreme cases where the child is at risk of physical harm, it is never a good idea to come between a child and their parent.
