Relationships 101 – Boomerang Kids, and When a Child Dies

Marie Gordon has a boomerang kid because her 27 year-old son was seriously injured and bedridden for a year. I suggested the myriad feelings her son inevitably must experience that cause him to act out his anger, disappointment, lostness, rejection, and hopelessness. Maria Malin talked with me about her 11 year-old son’s death eight years ago and strategies she used to heal and milestones in her recovery process. She is the author of When You Just Can’t Let Go, Don’t.
