16 - Julie Metzger - Great Conversations about puberty, empathy and modeling strong relationships Hopefully Somebody Knows

    • Kids & Family

I'm honored to be joined on this episode by Julie Metzger, founder of Great Conversations (https://www.greatconversations.com/ & https://www.facebook.com/GreatConversations). Her organization helps both parents and kids understand what puberty will look like and face it head on armed with information and a sense of humor. She's been doing these talks for over 30 years around Seattle and the Bay Area and was kind enough to give me some time to pick her brain.
What I expected to be a talk about the physical aspects of puberty turned into something far richer: a discussion about emotions, empathy, modeling strong and loving relationships and how you sometimes just have to shut up and let your kid talk. I won't spoil any more of this but I will say that I personally learned far more in this episode than I could have ever anticipated and I guarantee you'll learn something too.
