Reconnection Club Podcast cover art

If only your child would let go of this grudge she’s carrying. If it weren’t for that, the two of you could be close again, the way you’re meant to be.

But wait – IS your child holding a grudge? If so, why? And what’s the remedy?

If your child is holding a grudge, there’s absolutely nothing you can do but wait till he comes around. And hope it doesn’t take too long.

In this episode, Tina brings good news: A grudge is probably not the reason your adult child is estranged right now. And if it’s not a grudge your child is insisting on holding, then as a parent, you have the power to change the picture.

Tina lists specific alternatives for the consideration of parents who feel their adult child is simply holding a grudge. Spoiler alert: It’s not that simple.

And it’s definitely not that hopeless from a parent’s point of view.

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