Video: Common Mistakes in Dealing with Your Parents

By Diana Hsieh

In last Sunday's Rationally Selfish Webcast, I discussed common mistakes with parents. The question was:

What are some common mistakes that adults make in dealing with their parents? Why do they make those mistakes? And how can they do better?

(3) Falling back into your childhood patterns. All of these problems can arise over matters of diet, as well as a host of other issues. Here's the 18-minute video:
