The alienating parent seeks to lead and control. Their behaviours are incredibly selfish; they put their needs above everyone else’s, including their children. A healthy-minded, loving parent doesn’t do that, and most of us couldn’t have imagined anyone would be that cruel. We know children love and want both parents in their lives (until the campaign of denigration kicks off, usually triggered by separation/divorce). It takes us by surprise how much the alienating parent simply doesn’t care. Vengeance and ‘winning’ is more important to them. Typically, they are cluster b personalities (histrionic, borderline, narcissistic ..)
It can be argued, by some, that parental alienation does take two because without the ‘other’ there can be no triangulation. Some also suggest that we should have known better or had higher self-worth, or been less empathetic, kind-hearted, patient or tolerant.
But the simple fact remains; one parent alienates the other parent. It takes just one person. And they harm and destroy many with their actions. They know the moves because they’re highly manipulative. BUT when you empower yourself with an understanding of their behaviours, and the pathology behind it, you can learn to predict their next move, and even be one step ahead.
