Parental alienation, whether or not you believe it is a syndrome, occurs in high conflict divorces when one parent influences a child against the other parent. A child suddenly does not want to see one parent with no apparent reason or justification. Mothers’ rights and fathers’ rights can be lost.

One parent’s hatred or anger against the other parent can be harmful to the children depriving them of the love and time of two parents.
