          Sunda is a stand-up comedian who says getting her 17-year-old child, Aviva, ready to go to college is no laughing matter. One of the biggest challenges, she says, “is going to the doctor’s office with my daughter.” 

          Aviva claims her mother has a habit of speaking for her. “I hate when people think they know me better than I know myself,” the teen says, adding that she’s very independent and doesn’t always want her mother involved in her business.

          On Wednesday’s Dr. Phil, Chief Medical Officer of Pfizer, Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall says, “One of the most challenging and exciting parts of being a parent is watching and helping your child be their own person.”

          She says there are steps Sunda can take to help prepare Aviva to assume a more active role in her own healthcare.
