i am 52. i have a son who is 26. he listens to these podcasts. he introduced me to stefan's podcasts. stefan never suggested that either my son, or i, should remove ourselves from family members. The show is about personal freedom, philosophy, and emotional health. stefan suggests therapy, and healthy, voluntary relationships. if this woman's son did not judge that his relationship with her was healthy, or productive, then i will have to leave that choice up to him. I wonder if this woman has listened to all of stefan's podcasts, and read all his books. if my son ever approached me, and removed himself from my company, based upon some volume of literature that he had read, you can bet that the first thing that i would do, is immerse myself in the content. this woman does not seem to have a grasp on the content, so i can not imagine that she has done this. I have visited stefan's house, and consider myself to be his friend. I have heard him encourage many people to seek therapy, and ask family members questions to see if there is much of a relationship. This is great advice.
