Episode 137: Is Estrangement a Trend?

Reconnection Club Podcast cover art

Parents of estranged adult children often worry that what’s happening in their families may be part of a growing trend.

On the one hand, it’s soothing to know you’re not alone when you’re suffering. But on the other, fascination with “estrangement as a trend” is just one more way to take your eye off the ball when you’re seeking to reconnect with your estranged adult child(ren).

In this episode, Tina explores the question of whether estrangement is on the rise, and if so, what it means for you.

The takeaway: Growing family estrangement may be an interesting topic for academics but should be held loosely by parents wanting to improve an estranged relationship with their own adult children.

For information on what causes estrangement, and ideas on how to repair your parent-adult child relationship, read Tina’s book, Reconnecting With Your Estranged Adult Child.
