“To enable, or not to enable, that is the question…”

The above play on words got me pondering on both the nature and choice of behaviours of those that intentionally or unintentionally become enablers of parental alienation. "To be, or not to be, that is the question," from Shakespeare's Hamlet is arguably the best known line from literature and theatre. In its entirety the speech shows Hamlet's profound … Continue reading “To enable, or not to enable, that is the question…”

Parental Alienation and Empathy

In the following paragraphs I would like to explore parental alienation and empathy. The definition of parental alienation is simple.
