FAMILY DISAPPEARED PODCAST: Surviving Thanksgiving as an Alienated, Estranged or Erased Parent Part 1 – Episode 17

family disappeared episode 17

Navigating the holiday season after experiencing family separation or alienation can feel like walking on a tightrope. But remember, you’re not alone. Listen in as Lawrence,  along with a panel of parents, discuss their personal journeys of recovery, and share strategies for maintaining the joy of the holidays amidst the pain of alienation. Hear about favorite holiday memories, from scavenger hunts to silly socks, and how we now communicate to our kids that everything is okay, even though we’re parenting without access.

Have you ever wondered how to shift holiday traditions without losing their essence when your children are absent? Our panel of parents recounts their memories from past holidays and the coping mechanisms they’ve developed to handle the changes in their lives. With special guests Geo, Anna, and Renee on the show, we explore the power of community support that has helped them authentically express their grief and joy.

We also discuss the power of recovery, how it helps form relationships and find support, and the resources available like Parental Alienation Anonymous and the Family Hope Project. So, join us as we embark on this heartwarming discussion, and don’t hesitate to share your thoughts and experiences with us.
