A Healing Book for Mothers of Estranged Adult Children
So many people assume Mother’s Day is a happy day that everyone celebrates. Unfortunately, this is not true for a lot of Moms. Sometimes, our grown, adult children decide, for one reason or another, that they don’t want to be a part of our lives. I am here to tell you that it hurts more than you can imagine. Thankfully, my child is back in my life, but our relationship is certainly not the same as it was. Thankfully, I found a great, healing book. “Done With The Crying: Help and Healing for Mothers of Estranged Adult Children” by Sheri McGregor, M.A. will give you hope!
This book doesn’t try to fix your relationship with your estranged child, it helps you to heal and move past the hurt. You can lead a “normal” life without all of the guilt and shame. This is such a taboo subject with so many because as Mothers, we are expected to just accept their behavior. We can continue to love them and hope they come back to us, but we can also live our lives. It is hard to do, but this book definitely helps!
Sheri McGregor is a loving Mother of five. She holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology, a master’s degree in human behavior, and she is a certified life coach. If this can happen to her, it can happen to any of us! She decided to write this book because after suffering through this herself, she found that there were many more like her. Most of us suffer silently. We all hope to reconcile, but you don’t have to stay stuck.
This book gives such hope, and it even touches on how to deal with holidays. That is a very hard time! This can happen to any loving Mother. Whether you are a doctor, teacher, lawyer, or single, divorced, or married, this problem doesn’t discriminate. This book helps you love yourself again. It’s ok to go on with your life! That doesn’t mean you don’t love your child.
If any of this is familiar to you, or you know someone going through it, this book will help. It could even make a good gift on Mother’s Day. That is a really hard day when this is happening to you.
