Has anyone been unjustly rejected by their children due to encouragement by other parent/grandparents/other? It happens usually during separation and divorce but could happen within a marriage. In many extreme cases, the child is prevented from a relationship with a parent due to a being blocked physically and emotionally. I'm currently in a toxic marriage where spouse and MIL badmouth me (among other things) to my 5 yo son to the point where he rejects, badmouths, and even bullies me.

After graduation I moved back home to save a bit of money. I am now 24 and want to move out this summer.

I’m the oldest child and daughter and have spent most of my life trying to make my parents proud - the thought of disappointing them is tough 😞

It’s a losing battle to talk to my husband about it because he can’t help but decent her.
