  1. This is a brilliant article. I have three children and once grandson that I am estranged from. I do not see any of them or speak to them and the indescribable pain and heart ache I suffer because of this is making me into an agressive unpleasant person. Thank you for posting it Laetitia, the comments from other people really do help. x


    • Thank you for your comment Jacqueline. I know parents who have tried hard to give their children a safe and happy childhood that are still in this position through no fault of their own. There is no handbook on how to raise a child and it is far from easy. I am pleased this post has helped you in some way and that one day your situation may change for the better. ❤ x


  2. I am truly blessed. My children still, and I’m sure always will come visit me. My son moved from New England to be closer to me and my husband. Now I have all three of my children and grand children close by and they come and visit regularly. Yes, I am truly blessed! But, I have to admit. My Mother which is now in her 8o’s and with dementia, was abusive. I still visit her, even though at times it’s hard to do. But she’s still my Mother. My heart breaks for the parents that their children has completely walked away from their lives. I have a friend who is going through just that. I tell her, don’t give up hope, still send those birthday cards, gifts and son on. Write them a letter and tell them how this is hurting you. But no matter what, you will always love your children.


    • If people could only think of the situation from the other person’s perspective or put their pride aside and have a mature discussion it would make all the difference. Life is too short to fill it with negativity. 😊 x
