Today we’ll be answering if it’s ever a good idea to give up on (or disconnect from) a self-destructive adult child.
Is it ever a good idea to give up on, or disconnect from a self-destructive adult child?
It’s only a good idea if they harm you and continually decide to do so. You have to learn to be alone, and it can be hard to do. But encourage more problem solving with the adult child and accept what is out of your control.
Learn to be alone
It’s hard to do
Provide “tough love”
Encourage more Problem solving
Accept what’s out of your control
Let’s revisit these points again.
If you’re dealing with an adult child that you’re on the fence with deciding when or if you should end the relationship, it should be considered if they harm you and continue to do so.
Learn to be alone and give both you and them the space they might need.
Encourage them to do more problem solving to feel useful and promote creating from them rather than self destructive behavior.
And finally, you should also learn to embrace and accept the things that may be out of your control with the individual.
Use these steps and make decisions accordingly.
