It’s finally out! WORKBOOK for parents of estranged adult children

WORKBOOK FOR PARENTS OF ESTRANGED ADULT CHILDRENAs readers have requested, Sheri McGregor’s new release, the Done With The Crying WORKBOOK: for Parents of Estranged Adult Children is now available.

The Workbook compliments her award-winning self-help book, Done With The Crying. The Workbook concentrates the exercises in a larger format that provides more writing space for the deeper insight readers find useful.

Meant as a supplement to the book readers call “the bible for estranged parents” and say is “better than therapy,” the Workbook helps audio- and e-book readers to make the concepts more personal. The exercises facilitate self-discovery and growth, which helps parents of estranged adults to move forward in their own lives.

Those who are revisiting the recovery concepts or who have been estranged yet again will find the Done With The Crying WORKBOOK for Parents of Estranged Adult Children convenient. By applying the information, parents can take charge of their emotional health and move beyond the sorrow to new meaning and joy.

I’m excited the Workbook is finally out! Thank you so much to those who have written to me asking for this publication. I am honored that you value my continued work. I hope you will find the Workbook helpful as you move forward … beyond the pain of estrangement and in treasuring your own beautiful lives.

    Thank you for helping me on my journey towards healing. It’s been almost six years since my youngest boy cut me out of his life and I suffer the guilt and pain every day. Your book is a source of comfort and this workbook is something I will purchase as soon as I finish your book.
    God Bless You and thank you for being brave enough to share your experience.

      Valerie I am so sorry, I have been going through the same with my son when he became an adult. I lived my life for my kids and that was a mistake and has left me believing he should put more effort in to seeing about me, spending time with me..I never had a chance to see about my self. I enjoy being around my kids, he is polite, will do what I ask, but he just does not initiate spending time wi tg h me. I go to the movies alone, watch TV, even go to church…just me..it does feel good. I will s as y nothing will take the place of my relationship with him..I still think about him, but I put those thoughts in the garage per se and I now focus on the front lawn if it makes sense..enjoy thevrest of your life..I love you as a mother..but don’t blame yourself. Respectfully Gigi

    After 14 years Estrangement I have seen my two adults daughters not easy but worth it. Being able to be with their hurt and pain and not being overwhelmed with my own stuff. It’s complex emotions the second meeting yesterday was 4 hrs in a public place I felt it was not going well then something softened. I’m feeling and seeing them at my dinner table eating my dinner and laughing and joking visualising and Writing it down every day saying it out loud. Yes thoughts do become things ! Stay strong and open for change I’m blessed to and grateful to have them fully in my life it’s happening !! It’s done nothing but that belief is true ! It’s belief and faith that’s it ! Believe xx love to everyone here thank you

      My daughter is doing the same behavior to me.
      I’m SO angry at her I’ve been a good mom she won’t let me see my grandson …im disgusted with her I’ve done NOTHING to warrant this behavior. My counselor says I’m being scapegoats and emotionally abused by kids I’m stopping contact with her and my son both….im done.

    Although it has been almost 15 years, I still struggle every holiday season. How does it happen that one person’s view of the past can be so different from what you know to be reality. Thanks for your news letters. It really does help to see that I’m not the only dis-owned parent.

    Happy thanksgiving Sheri I am so glad that you did a workbook. While my relationships with my kids are still not what I chose. It is easier to live a life that I enjoy instead if all the unwanted feelings that they wish to return. I hope someday my children come to terms with their greif because of these divorces. However I have learned no matter how much I want it they have to do it for themselves and forgive and let go. I pray they are happy no matter were they go. I’m going to enjoy enjoy my life thank you for helping me get through this. Juanita

    Painful Thanksgiving. I keep waiting for my son to text or call. Not gonna happen. But blessings abound and I do give thanks. Grateful for a strong marriage and one of our four children is with us. Lovely day with a subset of my family: both parents, age 84; dinner hosted by oldest brother and his wife and 2 daughters, young adults.

    I’ve survived estrangement with oldest daughter, now number two (son). How he sees the past is so very different from my memories. I know I was, and am, a good mom. My husband and I gave our children a very strong upbringing. They had material needs met and wants withheld for their benefit. Here’s the twist: my husband is Indian. I am Iowan. Our 4 are beautiful half and half’s. Number two is on a rant that he is discriminated against. NOT. He especially despises his white mother and sees me as the source of all his problems. He accuses his fairer siblings of having benefitted from white privilege. Ridiculous! I feel discriminated against for being white. And from my own flesh and blood. Hurt, yes. And angry. I wish I was done with the crying…….but I’m not.

    I know how you feel Anne. I’m not even started with the crying yet. Still in shock.
    From someone who’s daughter’s friends and their parents kept being amazed at how good our relationship was, to total rejection from her after a manipulative boyfriend put seeds of doubt in her mind.
    I’m moving away and not informing them, especially as after a declutter for my move, I found that important documents had been stolen.
    Sadly these documents pertained to my work and were psychological assessments (as my job entailed running a trauma unit my employer sent me for these…and they were all clear).
    She and her boyfriend used these in a counselling session to insinuate I had a raft of mental illnesses…in my absence.
    She then cancelled any further sessions and sent me a curt text to say there would be no reconciliation.
    It took a last session with the counsellor for me to piece it all together because he started telling me a tale that I had to read between ….then it dawned on me.
    Right now , although my reply to her text was a kind ‘ you’ll always get help here if you ask’ , I wish her all the trouble she’s going to have , Thanks to this creepy boyfriend and im not sure I’ll ever help if she asks.
