When Mamí Wants You Close, But You Need Space
Play • 19 min

Fryda grew up in a Cuban-American family, and easily sees how her mother's life in Cuba influenced how she raised her. As a result, sometimes their relationship feels strained. And, Juleyka speaks with an immigration and acculturation scholar who helps us uphold boundaries with parents.

Fryda is the cohost of the Teikirisi podcast. Our expert this week is Rose Perez, Associate Professor in the School of Social Work at Fordham University. You can learn more about her work here.
