Jada Pinkett Smith is opening up about having boundaries with her daughter Willow Smith in an all-new episode of Facebook Watch's Red Table Talk

Jada Pinkett Smith is opening up about the boundaries she's set with her daughter Willow Smith to have a healthy mother-daughter relationship.

In a PEOPLE exclusive clip from this week's Red Table Talk, Pinkett Smith, 50, sat down with her close friend, actress Lauren London, her mother Adrienne Banfield Norris and therapist Nedra Glover Tawwab to talk about setting boundaries in relationships.

"You're saying that what we should do is we should really be able to listen to what people feel," Pinkett Smith said, adding, "I gotta stop trying to fix every damn thing. That's not my job either."

The Girls Trip actress then reflected on how her daughter sets the tone, saying, "I gotta give Willow props because she'll call me, disrupted, and be like, 'I don't need you to fix anything mom, I just want you to listen.'"

"I go, 'Fantastic, I got you,'" Pinkett Smith added. "Because she knows I'm going to go straight to, 'Well we can do this and that.' 'Nope just listen to me mommy, I just need you to listen.'"
