How to rebuild a relationship with an Estranged adult child

Posted on 06/23/12, 01:11 pm
Would like to discuss with other parents struggling with this issue. Or with parents who have succeeded in rebuilding the trust with a child whom they've hurt, or was taken away, without you being involved due to the other parent keeping them at bay, and not allowing you visitation, or phone priviledges. Or your afraid of sending a letter or package, fearing the other parent won't allow it, or alters its contense to make the child hate you even more.

Now that the child has connected with the Estranged Parent, how to rebuild the trust between each other, without anger, or fear of them pulling back if you say something wrong.

Do you have adult children, who have blamed you for everything wrong in their childhood, lost contact either through addiction, divorce, or in laws? No phone calls for birthdays, Mother's day, just no communication. How do you cope with the emptiness, the painful loss of not having your children in your life? *WARNING*: Read this note about privacy: http://www.dailystrength.org/people/548/journal/1802327
