"Thank you for Done With The Crying: Help and Healing for
Mothers of Estranged Adult Children. The book is a must read for
parents of estranged adult children and mental health professionals
working with these families. Sheri McGregor's work is a breath of
fresh air offering a new perspective and providing support,
encouragement, resources, and compassion to good parents that have
found themselves in an unimaginable situation." ----Maritza Parks,
LMHC, Inspired Journey Counseling"While Mothers are mentioned on
the cover, dads, this is for you too! Done with the Crying
is for any (and all) family member who wants to heal and move
forward. This wonderful book will help you see how you can hold
your chin up high, dry your eyes, and get on with your life."
----Joi Sigers, Self Help Daily.com
"Done With the Crying also provides much time for reflection, for taking time to think about ones life and to read the stories of other women who are going through a similar situation. The book is easy to read, and provides much support and insight in a gentle and understanding way." ---Hennie Weiss, M.A., Metapsychology Online Reviews
"This is my best resource to assist families whose adult children have rejected them. In my role as a family life educator, I work with those affected by a loved one's mental illness, and the sad phenomenon of estrangement is rampant. I've searched for resources and education, but there is precious little available to help rejected parents move forward. It did not take me many pages in to see the value for my work, and I often recommend this compassionately written book to parents and families who are in so much pain." ---Mara J.
