Too broad of a brush.
I'm sorry, I worded that incorrectly. If the child demonstrates a sustained hatred towards and unwillingness to have a relationship with one parent, it's a sure sign that child is being alienated.
Dr. Childress says that this often manifests itself with a child hating a parent because 'they are bad', hating a parent for 'who they are', but being unable to logically explain this hatred.
