Having a damaged relationship with your adult child is a painful experience for you, the parent. This class will discuss some of the underlying causes of severe estrangement between parents and their adult-aged children and grandchildren; and why this devastating challenge has become so common today. We will explore how expectations can create resentment and bitterness and learn constructive ways of responding to hurtful interactions. You will gain coping tools to deal with being shut out of the lives of your adult aged children and their families. This class will provide helpful ways to approach these problems with as much healthy power as possible. The class is not psychotherapy. It will discuss and provide suggested tools to hopefully improve your relationship with your estranged children.
