The time is inching closer to the release of our new podcast, “When the Bough Breaks”. The time for the estranged adult child to be “seen and not heard” is OVER. 

    I have been spending the past couple months or so setting up our social media accounts and website. I’ve been completing all the pre-production audio that needs to be done. I’ve been working my BUTT off researching things I didn’t know how to do before in order to get this thing off the ground! To MY surprise, everything that’s been done has been almost 100% self propelled and that is the sort of thing that does not come easy when you’re a mom of four and you’re dealing with estrangement. I’ve had poor self esteem in the past and I’ve already done more than I thought I was capable of on my own. I have no intentions of stopping to rest any time soon. 

    I have received a lot of sincere support from other podcasters the past few months and I’m feeling MUCH more confident than I was when I first made the decision to start this project. I was SCARED. Let me tell you, but every day I feel more and more confident. Although there is no set date, I have a feeling things COULD be up and running as early as May! 

 Only a few things we still need…and that includes…GUESTS…and we need YOU to help spread the word that “When the Bough Breaks” is NOW OFFICIALLY a resource for estranged adults. Please share with others you think could benefit from this project.

We still have plenty of slots open for guests. You don’t have to be famous or rich. You just need to be estranged, you need a phone or laptop with Skype,  and a desire to share your experience with the purpose of offering support…a friendly voice to say, 

   “Hey, I’m going through this too, and it sucks! But maybe we can help each other.” 

That is my basic hope for this project, and now I must let my trust rest in you to share this project as much as you can. I’m not expecting our followers to keep posting this on their feed everyday. Estrangement isn’t a topic everyone wants to hear. I get it. But maybe think  a little about becoming a guest. Remember, you can use a pseudonym if you prefer. If you’re still not interested in becoming a guest, please be sure to check out the podcast when it comes out and  keep your eyes/ears open for someone who might be interested in hearing from others their stories. Click Here to submit a guest form.

Any positives vibes ya got! Please send a few my way as I prepare to record our FIRST episode this week. 🙂

A word from Lexie…

I’m Alexis Arralynn, the producer/host of the podcast “When the Bough Breaks”. Each episode is a peek into the life of a person who has found themselves in no contact with, or “estranged” from one or both parents and sometimes their entire family!

Being an estranged adult child myself for several years now, I have developed a passion for this project and I am hoping the listeners who are estranged will gain support from others like themselves, and for all other listeners to gain understanding of what being estranged is really like for adult children and their families and all the feelings that get mixed in.

We will be discussing with our guests the events that led up to the estrangement as well as sub topics that seem to branch from estrangement such as family trauma, divorce, drug abuse ect…

Our podcast is meant to be used not only as a support tool for the estranged,  but also an informative tool for those gaining more insight on how estrangement happens and how it effects those involved.

Estrangement is still a very taboo topic within our society. Our guests are real people who have made the choice to bravely speak about their experience with estrangement in a candid way. I extend my gratitude to them.

If you would like to follow us on our journey, please follow our podcast facebook page to receive blog updates and release information for the podcast.

Thank you for reading!
