The newest episode of The Same Boat is dedicated to my dad, the 80 year old fountain of youth 💪 Thank you for staying fit and relieving me of any burden of retiring you early.
Hatty Lee rejoins me to continue our discussion about parentified children. In this episode we cover topics such as:
*The importance of intentionally creating space for ourselves to identify and express our emotions
*The fear of losing our identity or role as a caregiver
*Is there only one way to honor our parents?
*Avoiding being a “burden” to others
*Can we prevent our own kids from being parentified children?
*What can family therapy look like with our parents?
*Is it helpful to “retire” our parents?
