The purpose of this study was to determine whether a connection exists between the dysfunctional social relationships of adults and the parental rejection they experienced in childhood. The study was done according to: The metatheoretical using tangent planes with the human sciences; the empirical by means of interviews and questionnaires; Scriptural perspectives (basic theoretical); practical theoretical guidelines for the adult who experienced parental rejection in childhood. The empirical study with three young adults indicated that a connection does exist between the dysfunctional social relationships of adults and the parental rejection they experienced in childhood. Parental education, which imitates God's model of parents, will be loving, accepting and purposeful. Without these characteristics in the parent-child relationship, the parental education will fail and the child's interpersonal relationships might be damaged I impeded. Parental love is the keyword in childhood, as well as parental interest, involvement and availability. Practical theoretical guidelines were established to facilitate adults who experienced parental rejection in childhood so that they can: Find freedom in Jesus Christ; discover their identity in Him; accept His unconditional love; enjoy the abundant life, which Jesus Christ promises everyone.
