How can false accusations damage the parent/child relationship?

When custody disputes break out and accusations fly, it turns the straightforward process of determining child custody into an all-out worst nightmare. False accusations occur in many forms, those of physical abuse and neglect to even drug addiction, which can harm the parent against whom they are lodged and can backfire on the parent who made the false accusations.

The courts do not tolerate false allegations, and it can impact your parenting time agreement if you are viewed as an alienating parent. False accusations can also irreparably damage a child’s sense of self as their relationship with their parent becomes needlessly upset or severed altogether, depending on the outcome.
