How to Minimize Your Chances of Becoming a Victim of Parental Alienation.

Have you recently found yourself in a different living situation than you previously maintained with your child? Are you going through a divorce or a custody battle? Are you not able to spend the amount of time with your child that you once enjoyed?

This makes you a prime candidate for Parental Alienation, or simply put this makes you a prime target for a disgruntled ex to use your own children against you.

The most important thing to do at this moment is the to maintain a strong connection with your child, and it all starts with taking action.

It's true that physical distance can create challenges, but remember that distance is just a number. It's your love, care, and dedication that truly matter. By implementing these simple but meaningful gestures, you can bridge that gap and build a bond that knows no boundaries and that the alienating parent will have a hard time destroying.

Start by setting aside dedicated time each day to connect with your child. Whether it's through video calls, phone conversations, or even old-fashioned letters, make sure they feel your presence, love, and support.

Next, embrace technology and find innovative ways to engage with your child, such as on their Social Media platforms, that is if they are still young enough to want you on them :). Or if they are a "gamer" get yourself a game station and play along with them.

Surprise visits, if the other parent will allow, are a powerful way to create lasting memories. Plan a visit when possible, maybe as soon as they get out of school so you can help them with their homework or maybe you show up at their volleyball practice.

But remember, it's not just about physical presence. Show genuine interest in their hobbies and passions. Celebrate their achievements, no matter how big or small. Be their biggest cheerleader from afar, and let them know that they have someone who believes in them, no matter where they are.

And don't forget to celebrate milestones! Birthdays, graduations, and achievements deserve to be honored. Take the time to send personalized messages and meaningful gifts. Let them know that their accomplishments matter to you and that you are proud of their growth.

Lastly, always be available. Life can be unpredictable, and your child may need a listening ear or a shoulder to lean on. Show them that you are there, ready to listen and support them unconditionally.

So, my friends, are you ready to take action? Are you ready to create a bond with your child that defies distance and has a better chance at thriving and not succumbing to the negative effects of others?

Share some things in the comments that you do to keep your relationship growing and show your child(ren) that they are important.
