I agree that in many cases children are used as pawns in a divorce. I also agree that it is the worst thing to do to children. Parents are laying down their own rocky relationship with their children when they bad mouth the other parent. Each parent much teach the children to respect both parents and must allow the children to make up their own minds in regard to their parents. A child is entitled to have both parents in their lives whether they are good or bad. When the child becomes an adult they will choose for themselves who they wish to honor and have a relationship with. If you bad mouth the other parent, the child will resent YOU and pull away from you for stealing the other parent from them. They will believe that YOU are the bad one and YOU are the liar and will look to the other parent as the injured party.
