Picture it...your kid turns 18. You're so proud. They're an adult now. They're free to live their own life and make their way in the world. (Insert record scratch here). But, like...they still live at home because they have another year of high school to finish, and you can't just kick them out. What do you do when they think they should have all the freedom of an adult, with none of the responsibility? Join us as we attempt to talk this scenario through--because, Babs has in fact, turned 18. Sh*t!
