Episode 110: Knowing vs. Doing

Reconnection Club Podcast cover art

If only we always did what we know we should do, instead of what we somehow end up doing despite our better judgment.

When it comes to reconnecting with estranged adult children, many parents have good information to go on, and even better intentions.

They know what to do, whether it be listening more, reaching out less, or something else.

But if you’re like the rest of us, you don’t always put what you know into practice.

What gets in the way, and what can you do about it if you haven’t been following your best protocol to solve the estrangement of your adult child(ren)?

In this episode, Tina talks about two big obstacles that keep knowing from becoming doing.

For many more practical tips on how to repair an estranged relationship with your adult child(ren) and yourself, see Tina’s book, Reconnecting With Your Estranged Adult Child.
