Recovering Mother and Daughter Heal their Broken Relationship Through Parent Teen Mediation

Mom’s drunken behavior had finally driven a wedge between her and her daughter. The daughter now lived with dad who entered the family into parent-teen mediation to heal the rift. The mediators helped open channels of communication between mother and daughter, giving the daughter a place to safely share her thoughts, and draw healthy boundaries, and the mother a place to admit her remorse and love for her daughter. Covid-19 restrictions created another barrier, but mediators helped the two find their way to weekly, distanced walks at their old childhood park, where together they took small steps toward trust again.
