The Readiness Factor

How long does estrangement last?In every relationship, there’s always the possibility that one of you is ready to take a new step when the other is not.

As a parent unwillingly estranged from one or more of your adult children, you can do everything right, say all the right things, and still not get to reconciliation if the timing is wrong for your child.

Several Reconnection Club members posted in the forums this week about the concept of readiness. They noted that how parents navigate differences in readiness can affect the outcome of reconnection efforts.

Those posts inspired me to write an article about the importance of respecting your child’s (or your partner’s, or your own!) readiness to take a new step.
