In Dr. Warshak’s book “Divorce Poison”, he talks about insecurity that leads to parental alienation. (I had somewhat thought this was what could have led to my divorce, although I have no proof.) Dr. Warshak says, that some parents fear the child will become more bonded to the other parent so the alienating parent takes action to prevent a bond from developing. Often the alienating parent will leave the child with grandparents, baby sitters, or in daycare instead of letting the targeted parent care for the child. The alienating parent is willing to spend extra money to prevent the targeted parent from developing a bond with his/her child. If the alienating parent sees the targeted parent enjoying  a special activity with the child, he/she will try to steal or duplicate that activity.
