Thank you for publishing the article The Stranger in Your Family. Estrangements between young adults and their parents is truly a silent epidemic. After experiencing several of these serial estrangements in my extended family, the most helpful advice came from reading When Our Grown Kids Disappoint Us by Jane Adams, PhD, and most especially Heal and Forgive by Nancy Richards. Nancy's book has a check list of food for thought items to go through before attempting a reconciliation, and she advocates healing yourself first before trying to forgive others.
