It’s not easy being a teen. Being the parent of one is no walk in the park either. Actor/singer/songwriter Maggie Baird puts it this way, “You’re so involved in your little kids’ lives. You feel so needed. And then they get to be teenagers. They really really need you, but they don’t display it in the same way. They don’t necessarily want you to be quite as present, and you find yourself at a loss. How do you be this present parent without going out of your mind?” Annie talks with Maggie about her new film, Life Inside Out, in which she co-stars with her son, songwriter, Finneas O’Connell. Life Inside Out is an honest and beautifully textured mother-son story, based on Maggie’s family. Watch the film trailer.
