I would say this advice is categorically wrong! I am going through this very scenario with legal teams and psychologists and no one will tell you to walk away from your child at any point. There is a rare incidence of the other parent playing fair. A child needs both parents and needs to know you still love them. To walk away, demonstrates they placed the anger correctly and they will resent you further, because ‘you don’t care about’ them. The child’s anger is a test to see how much you do care by your own pushback for rights of custody. Regardless of whether you get it. This is a critical development time for the child to understand how relationships work and how they keep trust in others. Don’t let them down!
