NOT BORN YESTERDAY: Adults "Divorcing" Their Parents

This episode: Many adult children are “breaking up” with their folks, in what has being described as an epidemic of intergenerational dysfunction. Why is this happening and what can be done for the heart broken parents who miss their adult children and never see their grandchildren? Dr. Joshua Coleman, a psychologist and author of "Rules of Estrangement," talks about the pain on both sides and what can be done to make families whole again.

As part of Mental Health Awareness Month, BAY MADE is sharing a week of shows from Not Born Yesterday, hosted by Miriam Goodman and Lynn Winter Gross. The San Francisco-produced podcast examines the problems and solutions of growing older today.
