Children Caught in the Middle - See a loyalty bind in action and the damage and stress it causes the children…

A loyalty bind puts children in the middle of having to choose one parent over the other. When children are asked to pick sides this creates a tremendous burden on them. Children will either defend the parent getting put down or they will join the complaining parent. They are torn between placing their loyalties with one parent at the cost of betraying or being disloyal to the other parent. Children feel anger, confusion, anxiety, guilt and sadness, and anxiety when they hear negative comments about their parents. Children do not have a fully formed sense of self and are at risk of fears that they may be like the parent being put down.

View the video of Marcus and his mother.  Notice how easy it is to put your child into the middle.
