Question for people who have dealt with Parental Alienation
If one parent is purposely trying turn the child against the other to get full custody does it usually work or backfire? My husband's niece lives right down the road from BM and will go over to visit/play with SS. On more one occasion my niece has heard SS make fun of my husband's weight/receding hairline to BM and BM will laugh and tell SS "you are SO FUNNY" like rewarding him and encouraging him to make fun of his father. BM DID NOT know the niece was over and heard this. SS never does this at school or at our house only to BM. We asked SS why he does this and he denies it,gets angry and refuses to talk about it( this is what he does when he is lying)If there is a violent movie/video game that we wont let SS have BM will immediately go out and buy it for SS. We won't let SS stay home alone so of course BM lets him and tells him we don't trust him BUT she does. BM is a tree hugging nut and hates medicine. SS has allergies/asthma and been taking meds for this for years. Well BM has been trying to get him off the meds and on to herbs or some natural crap but the DR's refuse. Well SS has recently started putting up a stink about taking his meds something hes never done before. We are sure BM is telling SS to fight us regarding the meds.
So my questions are do you think as SS gets older he will see the crap BM is ding and that its wrong or could she be successful in Turing him against us?
