When Our Grown Kids Disappoint Us

Parental Alienation

Here’s some advice to parents in this situation. (1) Remember it’s their story and they’re sticking to it so don’t try to change or correct their version of the past. (2) Express your regret without letting them guilt-trip you; regret is guilt without the neuroses. (3) Stay open to their overture – who’s the grown-up here? – but don’t allow them to abuse you emotionally, physically, or financially.
