This daughter says that even though she's a grown woman, her mother, Debbie, checks up on her like a detective.

"I'm 27 years old," says Jennifer, "and my mom still treats me like I'm 12 years old. My mom is nosy, controlling and judgmental. She's constantly checking up on me and calling on the phone. She even follows me in her car!"

Debbie says that she worries about Jennifer because she disapproves of her lifestyle: "She'll go out to the bars...She has two babies and going out to the bar is not right...Jennifer withholds a lot of things from me and that's where I become nosy. She just doesn't tell me the truth sometimes...I crave one-on-one time with Jennifer. I want to be her best friend."
