Parent = Friend? Emotions, Identity and What Your Kids Actually Deal With at School | S5 E5

What's the proper response when your kids are overwhelmed by emotions? Be a friend - or something else? Mary Alessi sits down with her daughter Lauren to help you guide your kids at school and at home.

What do you do when your child's emotions are out of control? 

When they are stressed from school, or confused about their identity, is it OK for you to be a friend to them? 

In this episode, Mary Alessi sits down with her daughter Lauren Alessi to discuss the difficulties and dangers of letting our children's emotions and thoughts go unchecked. 

Lauren, who is currently earning her Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Liberty University, shares her experience as a school counselor to help you understand and respond to the challenges your children are facing daily.
