Freedom and Armadillo, no one would deny that if you were abused as a child you would cease contract with that person. I can think of nothing worse than your own mother rejecting you, never mind abusing you. I wonder how you ever develop any self esteem and confidence. You have both gone on and had families and value and want to protect your children from what you suffered. So well done for doing that. However there us another side if estrangement, many grandparents, who did their best as parents and loved their children to bits, are estranged for some perceived slight or wrong word, it can be as simple as that. Who knows why. Imagine those children of yours,whom you protect from your mother, ever turning on you. You think it's impossible when you gave a good relationship and the loves there, but it happens. The heartbreak is indescribable. I think however, not to have a safe and loving childhood the worst.
