To all the parents whose children have been brainwashed to hate, reject, dismiss and disrespect them. To the parents who have not spoken to their child in weeks, months or years due to the false narratives presented about them. To each parent that is in pain every moment of their life as they wonder about their “lost” child no matter how old that child is.
I have been where you are, alienated from my child for reasons I knew were not valid; reasons that my child had been brainwashed to believe about me.
It all happened so quickly.
One day, my child and I were as close as we had ever been, and within weeks, their feelings about me had changed. Before I knew it, my child began making false accusations about me and refused to see me. Days and weeks went by that I did not see them and was accused of actions that never even took place.
My child’s rational world had become irrational, one full of lies and false narratives.
And it all came from one source – one that was not my innocent child.
