Communication360 – Healing the Rift: Strategies for Parents to Reconnect with Estranged Adult Children with guest Dr. Joshua Coleman

Not having a relationship with a child is probably any parent’s nightmare but sadly, it is more common than you think. The number of reasons is beyond counting and if you asked any parent, most will say “they did the best they could” or they did, whatever it is, “because they loved their child.” Those responses are probably true but do little to heal the relationship. This week Philip and Lisa talk with Dr. Joshua Coleman author of When Parents Hurt: Compassionate Strategies for When You and Your Grown Children Don’t Get Along about what works and what doesn’t. In this show Lisa and Philip read an email from Melissa, a listener, describing her father who wants nothing to do with her husband. You will be surprised to hear Dr. Coleman’s advice.
