About Grandparent Alienation
Abandonment by our adult children is endemic in our society and globally.
Though common, it is rarely talked about. Grandparents faced with this loss are wounded emotionally and psychologically by their adult children. It has no socio-economic boundaries. GA is complicated grief…grief without closure. There is no closure because there is continued hope and desire for improvement. There is a physical absence with the psychological presence.
Alienation is a willful intimidation. It involves such issues as personality disorders including narcissistic personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, delusional disorder, etc.; unresolved childhood issues, pathological lying, manipulation, brainwashing, mind control, neuro-linguistic programming, and cult-like thinking. It is about power and control. It is frequently multi-generational generational.
The unjustified abusive controlling behavior of our adult children is creating a lifetime of emotional problems for our grandchildren. It is considered by the experts in Alienation to be a severe form of child abuse, and a severe form of elder abuse. Abuse is never acceptable; abuse is never OK.
AGA’s qualified professional consulting experts help grandparents/parents come to understand the varied dynamics involved in the complex realities of Grandparent Alienation-GA and Parental Alienation Syndrome-PAS.
AGA offers strategies for repairing, rebuilding, and healing these relationships with the gatekeeper…our adult children; and, then the grandchilren will follow. AGA offers coping skills to help manage the devastating emotional pain of being disconnected from our grandchildren.
Alienated Grandparents Anonymous focuses on the struggle so many grandparents have in being part of their grandchildren’s lives AGA provides support and information, and helps validate the feelings of those suffering some degree of estrangement, alienation, or isolation. AGA serves toward bringing alienated grandparents, parents, and grandchildren together.
