The more parents learn about how to respond effectively to estrangement by adult children, the more they start to regret what they did (or didn’t do) in the past.
Regret is the price of change; when certain changes make sense, we almost always wish we’d made them sooner. But in this episode (use the player below to listen), Tina assures rejected parents that all is not lost if you feel you erred in responding to your estranged adult child(ren)’s estrangement.
Most mistakes of communication are not fatal to your goal of building a better relationship in the long run. This episode includes both reassurance and, as always, practical advice for worried parents.
For information on how to repair the parent-adult child relationship, read Tina’s book, Reconnecting With Your Estranged Adult Child.
