Adulting is hard. Old news. But this specific topic is one I've heard many people (millennials) discuss...yet no one seems to have the answer! I decided to ask the best person I could think of! My friend and also a clinical child psychologist Dr. Andrea Mata is here to give us the FULL truth and nothing but the truth! We sit down and discuss how adult children can become friends with their parents, if it's actually even possible at all, what boundaries should look like, when boundaries are necessary, and so much more! Whether you yourself are a parent, or are an adult child yourself looking to navigate these uncharted waters, this episode is for you!
