It’s remarkable to look at the general lack of compassion in those parents willing to attack their own son or daughter’s relationship with an ex. And it’s not only a lack of compassion in dealing with their own child’s emotional well-being. These high level brainwashers (read more here) can be downright vicious, callous, and cold-blooded towards anyone they decide has wronged them. Not just an ex.
When I look at the adults that have alienated children against their own parent, I see people who have a very dark side. They are perfectly capable of coming across as nice and sweet as the social situation dictates, but if they feel like they are a victim in a relationship, friendship, or business partnership, they will lash out with vengeance that would make your head spin. They are highly toxic when they feel they have been “screwed over.” They are pulling a manure spreader, so to speak, behind them… spraying their outbursts and negativity to everyone in their orb.
The inability to show compassion– especially towards their own children– is the hallmark of the worst brainwashers. They also have a deep victim mentality… and the damage that they can do to children is quite substantial.
