The negative influence of the alienating parent may also make it difficult for the child to develop healthy cognitive and problem-solving skills.
The alienating parent may discourage the child from exploring new ideas or engaging in activities that may challenge their thinking or problem-solving abilities.
This can have a negative impact on the child's cognitive development and may leave the child feeling frustrated and discouraged.
It is important for caregivers, mental health professionals, and educators to be aware of the potential impacts of parental alienation on a child's cognitive development.
They can provide support and guidance to help the child navigate these challenges and develop healthy cognitive and problem-solving skills.
This may involve helping the child to identify and express their emotions in a healthy way and supporting the child in rebuilding their relationship with the targeted parent.
It may also involve providing the child with opportunities to explore new ideas and engage in activities that challenge their thinking and problem-solving abilities.
