Thought provoking and practical!

Stumbled upon this podcast after a friend who is a teacher shared an episode with me. I’m not even a parent myself but the guests are awesome and the information always gets me thinking about my own teen years and the world of teenagers. Lots of intriguing content! Host Andy does a great job taking whatever the subject material is and applying it to parenting teens. Looking forward to more episodes!

Great Truth Revealed!

What an incredible mix of experts! I greatly appreciated the interview with Tim about How to Be Happy. Huge golden nugget was the social outcome of :The more time people spend on Social Media the less they feel actually connected to people . Tim hit on several facts that desperately need to be heard, especially by our Youth who are severely addicted to social media and by parents such as: It's not the parents responsibiltiy to make their children happy. I really appreciate Andy's genuine enthusiasm! Thank you for the gold.

Guests are good, but I can’t stand Andy!

When Andy introduces the guests, he sounds like a giddy school girl and gushes... In general, he sounds like is cognitively disabled or like a surfer who’s smoked way too much reefer over the years. It’s a shame because the guests are often good, but Andy ruins the show.
