Support for parents of estranged adult children

support for parents of estranged adult childrenThank you for your interest in registering for the community support forum for parents of estranged adult children. I’m Sheri McGregor, founder of this website and forum, and author of the book: Done With The Crying: Help and Healing for Mothers of Estranged Adult Children

Already registered? Then click on “community” in the navigation bar above (without using the pull-down menu). that goes to the login page.

New here? It’s easy to register, but will take a few steps.

First Step:
Decide on a user name:
IMPORTANT, please choose a user name that DOES NOT include your name, your child’s name, or any portion of your email address.  The idea is to cloak your identity, and those specifics could make you identifiable. PLEASE NOTE that the forum is moderated and only approved users may post. However, this is not a private group (see below). Write your user name down and put it in a safe place.

Second Step:
Tell me a bit about yourself. In your note sent via the contact page (link below), you will need to include:

  • your name
  • the user name you chose
  • a few words about you and your estrangement

Use the form on the contact page to send me your information. Keep it short—-the form takes no more than 2,000 CHARACTERS. Then, you’ll need to wait for a reply. (I know this is cumbersome, but a recent vulnerability made necessary security vital.)

Note: Sometimes I receive emails from people who have asked tried to register for the forum, but did not hear back. If I have not answered your request to register, please note that it is not intentional. Feel free to send me another note with your information again, and telling me that you previously attempted to register. People are approved for the forum once or twice a week, so it may take a few days.

Third Step:
Once you have received an email reply notifying you of approval—and of some important guidelines about using the forum. You will be able to login to the forum using the user name and password you chose. The reply you receive in email will include more information for you.  Please use the “Introduce Yourself” thread at the top of the forum for your first post.
