Is that surprising?? That the sociopath is inconsiderate of the feelings of the children?
It shouldn't be... The sociopath has NO consideration for ANYONE'S feelings. Children are no different. The sociopath views their children as just another "object" to use, to manipulate others. Especially the non-sociopathic parent.
The sociopath will never care about the children. The sociopath doesn't think how much she is screwing with her children's head. The sociopath doesn't think about the future often, or consequences that could come from how she neglects them, manipulates them, alienates everyone healthy in their life. The sociopathic parent isn't concerned for their well being. The sociopath is only concerned about control. She will attempt to control the children's non-sociopathic by using the children against him. She has no remorse for her wrongdoing.
She wants 100% control over the children. In order to control her ex-husband. Female sociopaths are more prone to using children to hurt their ex spouse than their male counterpart - but the male sociopath will also do this if he gets the chance. The male sociopaths us use the children to hurt and deprive their ex whole the female sociopath uses the children to control their ex.
What better way to continue to hold control over his ex wife? The sociopathic father, tries to annihilate his ex-wife in court. He comes across as the victim of this "unstable and unreliable" woman. When his ex wife tries to defend herself, it is emotional and to the judge it looks like she is unstable.
Unfortunately sociopaths come across cool as cucumbers in court. Child Services and Family Protection Agencies and judges need to be better informed about the manipulation of a sociopath, and the effects and fear the sociopath has on his victims.. It's important to be aware that the sociopath has the ability to make their ex look bat shit crazy. By smear campaigns, gas lighting, verbal abuse, neglect, emotional abuse, and terrorizing..
