It’s not easy being a parent, and the challenges don’t necessarily stop as our children age. Tensions creep into the parent/child relationship at any age or stage.
You may be feeling distant from your child for all sorts of reasons. It could be that their choices conflict with your own values, or that past events have caused resentment or a lack of respect within your relationship. You may feel the connection is deeply strained, hanging by a thread, or has reached the point of total estrangement. This will likely cause feelings of anxiety and stress and even leave you feeling broken-hearted.
