Divorce Poison : How to Protect Your Family from Badmouthing and Brainwashing Paperback
Your ex-spouse is badmouthing you to your children, perhaps even trying to turn them against you.
If you handle the situation ineffectively, you could lose your children's respect-or worse, lose contact with them.
The conventional advice is to do nothing, but Dr. Richard Warshak is convinced that this approach is useless and only leaves parents feeling helpless.
The damage to children can be considerable-particularly when warring parents enlist children as allies in the battle. "Divorce Poison" is the first book that offers specific advice to protect children from the results of their parents' animosity.
It details how to distinguish different types of criticism, how and why parents manipulate their children, how to detect these maneuvers, and how these practices damage children.
Most important, it offers parents powerful strategies to preserve and rebuild loving relationships with their children.
