Episode 45: Declare Your Independence

Reconnection Club Podcast cover art

Independence is not just for countries. Nor is it reserved for adolescents seeking freedom from the binding restrictions of home.

For parents estranged from adult children, the concept of independence is often overlooked. But cultivating independence can have a positive impact on a rejected parent’s quality of life. That includes how you handle unwanted estrangement.

In this episode (click on the player below to listen), Tina presents various ways in which to cultivate independence for the sake of your mental health and well-being.

Rather than waiting for your child to stop estranging himself (thereby solving the problem), you’ll consider ways to decrease your reliance on outside circumstances, including the actions of other people.

To take even more control of the estrangement from your adult child, read Tina’s book, Reconnecting with Your Estranged Adult Child: Practical Tips and Tools to Heal Your Relationship.
