HELPING ESTRANGED GRANDPARENTS
Many parents say that being cut off from their grandchildren is far more painful than being cut off from their adult child.
Not having a relationship with a grandchild can be a source of enormous torment. This is because our relations with our grandchildren are often based on a relationship of innocence, shared need, and vulnerability.
Yet studies show that the relationship between grandparents and grandchildren is not only good for the well-being of the grandparent, it’s good for children’s development.

Why do estranged children sometimes cut off everyone instead of just the parents?

THE ROLE OF SOCIAL MEDIA AND ESTRANGEMENT
It used to be that estrangements between family members occurred privately.
Social media, Facebook and blogs have changed this.
Social media allows the child to broadcast their estrangement, shame and humiliate the parent in a very public way,
torment the parent by posting photos of the estranged child or grandchildren,
hurt the parent by unfriending them, and much more…

WHAT COULD THEY POSSIBLY BE THINKING?
Many parents are completely baffled by their adult child's estrangement.
Parents invest love, sacrifice, time, and money and are shocked by how angry and hurtful their children are.
"Why are they so unforgiving? So hostile? So contemptuous?"

MY ESTRANGED CHILD IS BACK IN MY LIFE: NOW WHAT?
Why do parents often feel like they need to walk on eggshells once their child is back in their lives?
Many formerly estranged children don’t want to discuss why they estranged themselves: Why? And how do you cope with this? How do you respond if they DO tell you their reasons for estrangement and there are distortions about you or their past?
What is the “new normal?”
