As your kids grow up and your parents grow older, the roles in your family inevitably change. Remember what those relationships were like before the massive shakeup?
- You used to be the one who set the rules but now that your son has boomeranged back, you’ve been dancing to his beat.
- Your daughter valued your opinion until her hormones kicked in and, all of a sudden, you’re persona non grata.
- Your husband always encouraged you in your career, but ever since your recent promotion he’s acting like a sore loser.
- Now that your mom has become so dependent, you’re feeling suffocated, emotionally distant and particularly guilty.
Women believe they can do it all – but it’s often at their own expense.
