Can't help wondering...
Why we fail to notice so many kinds of insidious child abuse? As with "Parental Alienation Syndrome!" We know that exposure to spousal physical violence causes stress for children, and causes symptoms of abuse in them. But how many other children are suffering from an onslaught of verbal attacks by one parent against the other parent? And suffering the consequencences. Kloth's aritcle shines a bright light on the subject. Her emphasis is on separated parents but I've seen many cases of this behavior within two-parent homes.
