In part 5, the final part in the boundaries series, Meadow and Laura answer a letter from "C", whose wondering how to kindly set boundaries with her husband. Her question is about physical boundaries (he quite literally won't get off her lap) but M&L discuss what may really be happening.
In part 4 of 5 of the boundary series, Meadow and Laura answer a letter from a mom (Natalie) who is trying to figure out the age-old boundary question: how do you set one without hurting feelings? Is it possible to have boundaries and still be likable? Plus, a bonus riff on their favorite shows ever.
In Part 3 of the Boundary Series, Laura and Meadow discuss the flip side of boundary violations: containment. There are some super sneaky ways we violate other people's boundaries including gossip, triangulation, "helping" and actual, (ahem) trespassing.
In Part 2 of the Boundary Series, Laura and Meadow discuss the first signs of boundary violations, why anger is such a vital emotion, and how to start protecting your own space when other people are living all over you.

We talk and hear about boundaries all the time, but what the hell are they? Why should we care? In the first part of a series on boundaries, Laura & Meadow define in the simplest terms what boundaries are, what they're not, and what happens when we don't have them.
