Parents Of Estranged Children Offer Advice

I don’t know, I don’t know! I did something wrong, I’ll tell you right now! Because I don’t hear from either one of my kids. I don’t even — I never hear from them. And it hurts like crazy. Why do you think that is? Do you have any idea?

I think when I married the second time it was such a different life, it was such a different life from what we had lived before. And I was so occupied, and we went all the time, and my life was so busy so I lost track of them, being close to them. They weren’t exactly unhappy about it; we just had nothing in common anymore. And after I married again — I don’t think they really resented my second husband, but they just didn’t have anything in common.

I think that’s where it began. But I do wish I’d hear from them more often now, yes I do!
