Resource: When terrible, abusive parents come crawling back, what do their grown children owe them?

Great article well worth the read!

Marci, Mental Health, & More

I found this article last night on my Zite tittled “When terrible, abusive parents come crawling back, what do their grown children owe them?” I immediately thought of a few specific bloggers who have recently been deciding how they want to deal with parents or family members who had a negative impact on their life, mostly through trauma or abuse.  Not all cases represented family asking for help or forgiveness and in most cases avoiding or denying the past.  I also found the article featured on MSN and thought I’d link it with some quotes and insight from the article.
