Broken Families Podcast (S1)
As an alienated parent, you get caught in a huge tidal wave of challenges. You find themselves struggling with finances, an ugly divorce, and anxiety. And the worst part is their own kids won’t even look you in the eyes.
That is why I cohosted the Broken Families Podcast with Barbara La Pointe to help you avoid major pitfalls as you navigate divorce, reconnecting with your children, and rebuilding your life.
I left the podcast in the very capable hands of Barbara after Season 1 for professional reasons and the podcast has since been rebranded to The Healing Broken Families Podcast.
Frequently Asked Questions
As an alienated parent, it is not uncommon to have a million questions. Here are a list of common questions that I get asked and I hope these answers can help you get the guidance you need to reconnect with your alienated children.
I do not offer coaching as I work full time as a writer. I choose not to be a coach as finances tend to be tight for many alienated parents and I do not wish to create barriers to your children.
Reconnecting with your children is a long process that involves a great deal of time and energy from you as a parent. There is no one-way to reconnect and often you will feel like nothing you are doing is working.
To reconnect with your alienated children, you will need to ensure you are strong financially, emotionally, physically, and psychologically. Afterwards you will need to separate the child from the source of alienation.
Your child will believe horrible lies about you. To reconnect with your child you need to open spaces for the child to slowly discover who you truly are. This means you will need to avoid sensitive topics and engage in small interactions with your child. Over time, you can deepen the conversation until your child is emotionally ready to talk to you.
