    5: Freedom to Fail - Failure might not have to be so painful.

    When we think about failure, we tend to focus on the consequences, the damage, the negative side of the topic. In our conversation, we talk about the value of letting teenagers fail sometimes, teaching them to learn from their failure, and modeling failure well for them. These reframing strategies can help us capitalize on the positive parts failure.

    Decoding Culture Episode 1: TikTok - Your teens are probably on it, so you should probably know about it!

    Decoding Culture Episode 1: TikTok - Your teens are probably on it, so you should probably know about it!

    This is an episode of Decoding Culture, which is a sister podcast to Parenting Stuff. Through Decoding Culture, we want to give people that care for teenagers the tools to have conversations and ask questions about the technology, social media, internet trends, movies, music, video games, pop culture, and other things that are a part of the life of your teenager so that you can better care for them.

    On this episode, Sam and Chris talk about TikTok which is a social media platform that is gaining a lot of momentum and is expected to become even more popular in the near future. In our conversation, we talk about our interaction with the platform, what TikTok actually is, why a parent might want to know that their teenager is using it, and go over some questions that you can use to begin a conversation with your teenager about TikTok. Sam also sits down with Eryn, a real live teenager, to talk about TikTok from her perspective.
