2. Erasing and Replacing
Ohhh, this one, y'all.... it's a roughy. When your child refers to you by first name -- or worse yet -- they're calling someone else the term of endearment you thought was only reserved for you? Absolutely maddening. This strategy is yet another way that the alienating parent can send the message that you are not relevant anymore (this is what they want you to believe, anyway). Don't take their bait. When you apply the work I've outlined in this episode, you will come to believe that you do not need anyone's approval or permission to be exactly who you are: your child's parent. This, my dear friend, is the irrefutable truth (make sure to stay till the end, when I bring this home😉).
