Text on Parental Alienation Syndrome Lays to Rest Opposition’s Arguments

"What Gottlieb has witnessed time and again in her practice is that the alienating behavior parents engage in post-divorce actually began as a family dynamic long before. For example, a mother who assumes primary childcare during the marriage and marginalizes the father, may become the authority in the family regarding childcare matters. She may wield this power in a dictatorial manner, tossing aside efforts or suggestions of the father. This one-sided, “I am the sole authority” attitude, if acceded to by the father sets up an unequal dynamic between the two when it comes to the children. In the event of the divorce, the same dynamic may play out, with Mom marginalizing (alienating) Dad and Dad acquiescing in his subservient status. Stated another way, maternal gatekeeping may be a precursor to (or an example of) parental alienation."

NH Supreme Court: Parental Alienation Inimical to Child’s Best Interests

Link
“What Miller v. Todd does is to show that the requirement on the part of each parent to promote the child’s relationship with the other parent is necessary and beneficial to the child.  It also shows that courts will not reward the alienating behavior of parents.”

What is Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS)?

Link "Approximately one in two marriages in the United States ends in divorce, affecting about a million children per year. About 10% of these divorces involve custody litigation. Some children are or become emotionally estranged from one or both parents during this process. The cause of this estrangement cannot be determined without an in depth understanding of the family's history and dynamics. Research has shown that the issues underlying parent attachment or estrangement are complex and do not lend themselves to easy answers. However, some child custody evaluators rely on simplistic "junk science" theories to explain the child's behavior and recommend "one size fits all" type solutions to force the child to divide their love 50-50 between their parents."
