Publisher's Summary

Your ex-spouse is bad-mouthing you to your children, perhaps even trying to turn them against you. If you handle the situation ineffectively, your relationship with your children could suffer. You could lose their respect, lose their affection, and even, in extreme cases, lose all contact with them.
This groundbreaking work gives parents powerful strategies to preserve and rebuild loving relationships with their children and provides legal and mental health professionals with practical advice to help their clients and ensure the welfare of children.
Divorce Poison offers advice on how to:

Recognize early warning signs of trouble
React if your children refuse to see you
Respond to rude and hateful behavior
Avoid the seven common errors made by rejected parents

Required Reading

Like other readers/listeners there were many similarities in my own divorce experience. I wish I had found this book earlier for me to better help my children understand loving both parents is okay despite the circumstances of divorce. It's extremely hard when divorcing a narcissist.

i have hope again! thank you so much. you will save my family. I still have to open up my communication with my daughter. but someone professionally finally knows and can prove what I'm through. I almost gave up many times. I'm so happy i didn't. i would have never made it here and probably my life. I'm an empath so you can see how 6 years of this has done to my well being. I blame myself for not being more assertive. I will survive because of you. I literally cried like a baby and laughed while crying as i listened to your book. i also have attention deficit issues. so that's why i did the audio. fyi your narrator is amazing. I could listen to!his!voice all day long lol. again thank you with all my heart. this is it. this is the first day of the rest of our lives. i will reach out to!you when I've taken care of my family to share my stories and how i coped. maybe it can help someone else in my situation. and earlier detect it. :) your biggest fan MATT
