Relationships with our parents, even the best ones, hit rough spots every so often. But for some, those rough spots grow, and last and lead to an estranged relationship between parent and child.
An online survey found that 60% of parents claim their child never explained why they needed to cut off their relationship.
Tina Gilbertson is a psychotherapist, author, and co-founder of the Reconnection Club, offering education, community, and support to help estranged parents repair their relationships with their adult children.
We hear about her book Reconnecting with Your Estranged Adult Child, the most common reasons children and parents become estranged, generational and cultural differences, as well as where to begin the journey to repairing this relationship.
