An amazing, compassionate and unique resource on the complexity of estrangement between a parent and adult child.
Our daughter, who has estranged from us, directed us to this podcast before leaving. It has been tremendously helpful in helping us understand the point of view of estranged adult children and places we can do better in communication. Kreed has a wealth of insight, and kindly shares her personal story as well as studies, research and the work of therapists to guide us toward curiosity and self-knowledge. We hope for a reconciliation and these podcast episodes will help us get there when the possibility arrises.
Kreed’s insights , ideas and encouragement is helping me to move through estrangement of 2 of 3 of my adult daughters. I relax quietly and listen to your episodes and reflect back on them helping me cope with daily heartache. Thank you so very much, Kreed. Blessings to you. Lisa F.
Kreed’s podcasts have helped me open my eyes to what my part in the equation is. I’m learning my son’s perception is his reality. She encourages parents to get curious of your child’s responses, without blaming/judging, and this is clearly a muscle I haven’t developed well. I’m just starting to shift from trying to lecture/change my adult child when I experience resistance, to being more mindful of my words/responses, and how they help or hinder our relationship.
Kreed’s podcast is amazing. I would highly recommend it to other adult children going through estrangement.
I’m appreciating that Kreed can speak on both perspectives. I’m a 55yo estranged only son. Been estranged since 1987
I have just started to listen to podcast and I’m sorry I didn’t find this one sooner! I am still in the midst of estrangement. I have only listened to the first two episodes but I know I will listen to all of them by tomorrow. For the first time, someone actually understands, relates and has put a voice to all the pain. I am also interested and open to learning what was my role in my own estrangement. I have been estranged from my son and as a result, my grandchildren, for almost eight years. I have already gone through the grief process and it was hard and it was REAL! still today, at certain moments, I go through grief and the whole gamut of grieving (only it happens in a much quicker period of time) sometimes one day, sometimes a few hours. Anyway, I had to stop at episode two to send this review because that’s how strongly I feel that I have found someone who’s not only been through it and gets it, but also is providing a platform to hear other perspectives, as in adult children speaking of some of their reasons. I look forward to listening to the whole podcast and to follow it every week! Thank you!
I am still in my estrangement but listening to the first five podcasts has given me much more to think about. I never considered that we were enmeshed and the ramifications of that. While the choice to reconcile will always be my childs, this knowledge helps my perspective. ♥️Thank you Kreed
Thank you, Kreed, for giving hope, support, and healing to so many. There is so much depth to what you offer. Healing broken relationships and our broken selves is key to a better world...you make the world a better place! Everyone should listen to your wisdom!
I found Kreed, and her Podcast in her Estranged Mothers support group on Facebook. The Podcasts have literally changed my life and how I’m viewing my estrangement. I only wish I’d found these sooner. The only way out is through, as she says and it’s so true! Kreed challenged me to look at this from my estranged child’s point of view, while she humbly and readily admits her own parenting mistakes. Her humility has lead me to explore my own childhood, and what I brought into my mothering. I’m in therapy, and this podcast has catapulted me into being very curious about not what I did or didn’t do, but how I made my children FEEL! So much great content in this podcast, all from one estranged heart to another.
Kreed -your podcast is beautiful in so many ways ….your kindness in returning direct messages and e-mails has been such a gift to me .Thank you so much !! Taking the time to be curious and kind to ourselves is very important. Still estranged from one of my precious sons and his wife and family.Thank you for the support group and for prayers for us all to be reconciled one day ❤️
Finding Kreed, her facebook group, and her podcast has been such a blessing to me! Kreed speaks with such genuineness, kindness, and insight. She shares her own experiences against the backdrop of much research she has done in the subject of estrangement. I feel like I have a supportive guide through this confusing and tortuous land of separation from a beloved child. Each podcast episode covers a specific topic related to estrangement, however, there are common threads woven through all episodes so that they come together and bring clarity to the issue overall. Most importantly, Kreed emphasizes self-awareness, self-compassion, personal growth and healing. There is life after estrangement.
Kreed takes listeners on journey from estrangement from her daughters to their subsequent reconciliation. Beautiful and reflective. So many of us have been or are estranged from from our children. This is a necessary listen to navigate this journey.
This podcast has great information, tells it like it is and pulls no punches. A must listen for parents.
This topic is so needed and not often talked about. Navigating relationships with your parents as adults can be so hard, and we’re not taught how to communicate better with them or what to do when there’s an estrangement. Thank you fir bringing this topic to light!
Estrangement is a tough topic and hardly talked about. Kreed discusses it from both perspectives in a loving and authentic way. From her own experience, she offers helpful tips to both sides of the estrangement to hopefully facilitate reconciliation.
My grandmother's heartstrings were pulled to a new level here (Ep. 18)! So glad I found this podcast! Estrangement is no fun... let's avoid it at all costs. Thank you, Kreed for sharing your heart with us in such a loving and tender way. I'm forever changed!!
An amazing, compassionate and unique resource full of understanding of the complexity of estrangement between a parent and adult child. Changed everything for me!
I am so grateful to have learned about this beautiful heartfelt balanced perspective to such a heart wrenching experience. I am thankful to be able to say own estrangement is long past. But these very honest and transparent stories touch my heart in deep places and bring even deeper compassion and healing. Thank you so much for the work you are doing. 🙏♥️🤗
I just listed to your latest podcast and it was so enlightening and helpful. I have adult children that are pulling away and I understand the unresolved emotions and feelings. Now I see we need Thearpy big time. I obviously have no idea how to correct the situation. Thank you so much for this information. It was amazing.
This podcast was recommended because I am in the midst of and estrangement. I’m so great glad I found Kreed! Her insights wisdom and opennessI just what I needed during this challenging time!
These podcasts provide insight, Hope and Grace to a delicate painful situation. Listening gives insight and tools to move forward to a better tomorrow. Thank you so much.♥️
This podcast is so needed. It is easy to feel alone in a difficult situation. This podcast is a great way to feel understood. Thank you Kreed!
I kept with the podcast and this is what I needed. Excellent to listen to and gives you so much to think about. It has been very helpful to me. Thank you so much!
Kreed is doing such important work here. Let’s talk about estrangement because it happens so much and sometimes when you least expect it! A must listen!!
