“When she just comes up in my room and wants to start harassing me about how I’m going nowhere with my life, and then gets just shocked when I blow up at her – then I don’t feel bad,” he says.
Amy is a self-described “helicopter parent” who admits she wasn’t very good at establishing boundaries with Jai when he was younger. She says he has struggled with mental health issues since childhood.
