PAS is present in almost every divorce. My son married a girl that had lost two of her children in an earlier divorce. She was always coaching the children. She would "plant" ideas then work the idea like it was a garden until the kids were saying dad did this or dad did that. I even believed some of the stuff she was saying about the guy. Then I noticed a pattern of behavior with my son. She was trying to establish a pattern of abuse. She called the cops repeatedly saying he did this or that. My son learned quickly not to defend himself when she attacked him. The cops would show up and the girl wouldn't have a mark on her and he would be all scratched up and bruised. One of the fights she had been in the bar all night, when she got home she walked into where my son was sleeping and jerked the bed covers off of him and walked out of the room with them. So my son got up went out got hold of the covers yanked them out of her grasp and went back to bed with the covers. The next morning she had a black eye. Who do you believe??? someone that was drunk and looking for a fight, or someone that was minding their own business until they were provoked? When no one would buy into the story she had been hit her story grew, the last story included him having her down on the floor choking her while he was screaming he was going to kill her. So now you have a house where this is happening in the middle of the night another couple down the hall didn't hear anything like that and the girl has no marks on her neck. You figure it out.
Now they are in divorce proceedings (imagine that) and she is fighting for custody of their child. The child doesn't have much of a bond with the mother. The child always wants to go with his dad. Out of nowhere a while back the kid walks into my sons house and points to his bedroom and says, " I scared" then proceeds to walk back there and go to playing. I've seen this behavior from women several times in the last 30 years. I have a niece and a nephew that tried to commit suicide because the mothers brain washed the kids so bad. When you finally get the kids away from these female abusers the kids open up and tell you what was said and done to make them feel like the fathers and their families wanted nothing to do with them. One mother went so far as to sell the Christmas presents that had been sent every year. Remember the "Care Bears" from about 25 years ago, the were expensive and hard to get. My brother in law sent all of them, about a dozen different bears, to his kids one year for Christmas and we later learned the mother got them in the mail and then sold them to someone I happened to know. This is they type of behavior judges have supported for years. They will not listen, they don't want to disrupt the child's life. I have nothing good to say about judges.
