The child may also struggle with feelings of guilt, shame, and self-blame as a result of the alienation.
They may feel responsible for the conflict between their parents and may feel that they have failed in some way.
These emotions can have a negative impact on the child's self-esteem and may lead the child to feel inadequate or unworthy.
It is important for caregivers, mental health professionals, and educators to be aware of the potential impacts of parental alienation on a child's self-esteem.
They can provide support and guidance to help the child navigate these challenges and develop a healthy sense of self-worth.
This may include helping the child to understand that they are not responsible for the conflict between their parents and that they are worthy of love and acceptance regardless of their parents' relationship.
