Everyone handles grandparent alienation differently. For some avoiding help of any kind is a way of coping. It may not be exactly like denial, but humiliation about what others may think. It is embarrassing to allow friends and relatives a peek into our problems. So, these are the ones who pretty much suffer in silence and by their own choice decide not to seek help in the way of available resources. We can’t force them to read the books, go to support group meetings, attend therapy or reach out to other grandparents in the same circumstance. It’s for them to decide when and if they want to take action toward behavioral change and looking for ways to re-connect with the grandchild.
