Adoptive Parent's Parental Alienation of Biological Parents
Adoptive mothers commonly experience the adopted child's natural parents as a threat to the adoptive mother's psychological stability. The adoptive mother's jealousy, entitlement and vilification of the non-existent natural parent is her impulsive reaction to label these real people as bad, the enemy, instead of being a mature adult representative of the child's natural parents that are not present to defend themselves. Adoptive mothers actively engage in natural parent alienation to condition the adopted child's normal thoughts about their natural parents to be negative thoughts of detest and repulsion toward the child's natural parents to ensure the adopted child's unconditional allegiance to the adoptive mother. This common psychological manipulation by immature, narcissistic and selfish adoptive mothers only lasts through adopted childhood, where in adolescence the child develops cognitive ability to question childhood manipulations by intrusive adoptive mothers to control their adopted child.
Parental alienation is the process, and the result, of the psychological manipulation of a child into showing unwarranted fear, disrespect or hostility towards a parent and/or other family members. It is a distinctive and widespread form of psychological abuse and family violence —towards both the child and the rejected family members—that occurs almost exclusively in association with family separation or divorce (particularly where legal action is involved) and that undermines core principles of both the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Natons Convention on the Rights of the Child. Most commonly, the primary cause is a parent wishing to exclude another parent from the life of their child, but other family members or friends, as well as professionals involved with the family (including psychologists, lawyers and judges), may contribute significantly to the process. It often leads to the long-term, or even permanent, estrangement of a child from one parent and other family members and, as a particularly adverse childhood experience results in significantly increased risks of both mental and physical illness for children.
