Watching Adult Children Stumble & Fall

Parental Alienation

A HuffPost article, “The 6 Things You Shouldn’t Say To Your Adult Child” highlighted that “Any tension between parents and adult children can often be felt more strongly by a parent, as parents are often more emotionally invested.”

How often do you hear a parent say, “You won’t understand until you have children of your own.”

Ruth Nemzoff, author of “Don’t Bite Your Tongue: How to Foster Rewarding Relationships With Your Adult Children,” makes the point that:

“We fantasize that we can say anything we want to our kids, but the truth is, we never could.”

A good rule of thumb is: If you would not say the comment to the person you admire the most in the world, as you would not wish to offend or upset them, then DO NOT make this comment to your adult child.
