I'm not a psychologist, so what follows should be taken for what it is, the opinion of a layperson.
To me there are two distinct
problems going on here.
The first and most important problem, because it is the source of all the difficulty in this case
, is the failed relationship between
the mother and the father of the child. The mother is suffering because of this. She feels rejected and is in need of attention, sympathy, cuddling,
coddling, building up of her self esteem, etc., etc., etc.
Her situation is complicated because life is complicated and it needs a lot of attention.
The second problem was created by the mother as a way of solving the first problem, for which she is not receiving the appropriate
treatment. In a tit for tat sort of way, called spite, she has decided to reject her child, the child of the father who rejected her. This is a
classic development. Children of divorced parents are rejected all the time.
But . . . she feels badly about rejecting the child so she has concocted this preposterous story about something odd, something strange, something
wierd about the child.
This fraudulently developed story serves two purposes. It gets her off the hook for rejecting the child and more importantly gets her the emotional
sympathy, support she craves in her current situation of being the survivor of a failed relationship.
This woman and her child, need professional help, either from a psychologist, her church group or somebody in her circle, who sees clearly what is
going on and is not fooled by the spin.
