This week, your questions discussed the cozy setting of Prudie’s literal bedroom. That might sound overly intimate, but it’s not as intimate as going to a sweat lodge with your co-workers! Guest Lauren O’Neal and Prudie tackle how to set boundaries when your boyfriend’s family comes over every day without knocking, what to say to a mother who’s shunting her paid nanny duties off onto her teenage children, how to give your friend with cancer the support you never got, whether to dump a boyfriend who refuses to call you by your name (uh … yep), and how to gently let your overprotective mom know that you’re OK on your own. Plus: how to travel through time on TV.
