This book presents five main types of parental alienation strategies that a parent can engage in along with many tips and parenting ideas to counter the efforts of the other parent.


  • Poisonous messages to the child that you are unsafe, unavailable, and unloving


  • Limiting contact and communication


  • Erasing and replacing


  • Encouraging betrayal of your trust

Positive and mindful parenting approaches are presented, tailored to each of these parental alienation strategies.
