Growing up, it’s a given our parents will set rules around curfew, chores, and routines. But as we grow into adulthood and become more independent, it’s reasonable to want to establish some healthy space.

Tune in, let Dr. Berry’s wise words wash over you, and don’t forget to leave us a comment letting us know what you’d like to see next on How 2 Deal.
