Our expert says:
My broader concern would be for a woman so spiteful and vengeful as to risk harm to her children simply in order to score points off her husband. She sounds immature and dubiously devoted to proper mothering.
Like Tanya, I have often said I with that instead of a contraceptive pill, everyone was naturally infertile, and would need to take a Ceptive pill, to be able to conceive, and to pass a comrehensive assessment before receiving that pill. Abandoning children to spite someone is far worse than being jobless. I also wish it were a specific criminal offense for any parent to use children as weapons in their battles against a spouse.
Anyway, in the situation one describes, one wonders whether Child Welfare services and a competent social worker should be invited to assess the situation and the capabilities of each parent to be capable of proper parenting.
Mere biological motherhood is a technicality, and o no benefit whatever to the child when there is a lack of genuine love, caring, and parenting skills and instincts.
In the situation you describe, the younger child is more likely to be damaged by separation from his brother, than by not being with an uncaring and selfish mother.
What she has been doing is indeed emotionally abusive, and of course the child of 2 can understand much of what is going on - apparently more than his foolish biomom. It is She who is being naughty, not the child. She's more than an idiot ; she's an abusive and irresponsible adult child
