Thank you Debra Cusick for reading, and my sincerest apologies for all of the heartaches I’m sure you’ve experienced. I wish I could say it gets better, but it doesn’t. It like a roller coaster. I’m glad my experience has resonated with so many mothers and fathers, and even children. Consider it done…I’m sending you courage to beat the feelings of failure, and I happily accept your gift of courage in return. The emotional abuse by adult kids to parents is not alright, and it needs to be discussed more. If it’s not perfect, we must suffer in silence. No more… Thank you again for taking the time to share your experiences.
