    Let’s Give Them Something to Talk About with Brooke Romney

    When we think about having a conversation...that might mean a lot of things to you. A conversation is simply talking and sharing ideas with others. Being able to have meaningful conversations about important topics is an incredibly useful skill, and is so healthy to learn at a young age. Brooke Romney is our guest today, and she features a weekly post on her Instagram account called “Teen Talk Tuesday”. This resource is incredible...and gives you quick access to important topics and current events, with prompts and questions to understand opinions on both sides of any given issue. In this episode we discuss how important it is to develop these skills that will make you a more interesting and well rounded person. Being able to form opinions and hold space for those who might not feel the same as you is not only possible but so needed today.

Loving this!!, one thing tho

Hey Becoming I love your podcast and listen to it everyday. although there is something, I have been struggling with being lonely I’m a teen who doesn’t really have a lot of friends if u could make an episode about being independent and confident, do it by yourself type thing that would rlly help thanks.

A priceless Resource and Comfort!

You ladies are amazing in the way you tackle the hard topics. Being a young woman is hard, and being a young mom is hard, and I’m sure every stage past that has hard aspects too. There’s something in these episodes for everyone. Thank you hosts for your effort and dedication to educating your listeners on the reality of the tough stuff and empowering us all to become who we are meant to be! Bravo!

youreawesome!! ,

Becoming my best self
