Setting boundaries with your children as they get older can feel counterintuitive.
After all, you raised them up from babies and have been as close as humanly possible, so how do boundaries even start and stop in this relationship?
Nonetheless, parent-child relationships benefit from healthy boundaries just as much as any other relationship, even though the cultural expectations might say otherwise.
AITA for making plans on Valentine's so I don't babysit my granddaughter?
My (36f) daughter Lia (17f) is a teen mom. My daughter got pregnant at 14, and it was very shocking news, but we found out very early on, and she got to abort it.
A few months later and she got pregnant again and I couldn't handle the situation very well at the time but having my sister (her aunt) talk to her about what she was planning to do, she decided to keep the baby.
