Divorced, how to avoid parental alienation?

Parental alienation occurs when one parent attempts to interfere with the relationship between the child and the other parent. To avoid this, it is important for both parents to communicate openly and respectfully with each other, and to make sure that the child’s needs and well-being are always the top priority. It can also be helpful to establish a clear parenting plan that outlines the responsibilities and rights of each parent, and to seek the help of a therapist or counselor if necessary. Additionally, it is important to be aware of any signs of parental alienation, such as the child expressing negative views of the other parent or refusing to visit or speak with them, and address them promptly.
