    Going Viral on TikTok

    We posted a TikTok about wet dreams and within two days, it went viral. Thousands of people commented that we shouldn’t talk to kids about this topic, ever. Hear our reactions to random strangers’ reactions to our TikTok (we beg to differ!), our theories about what makes our content go viral (hint: it’s always the videos about male body parts) and how that translates to real life conversations (spoiler: better to talk about it!)

Wonderful and empathetic podcast about puberty

This is the most approachable, empathetic podcast about parenting during your child’s puberty. I have just started listening and am 3 podcasts in on my first day. I have already learned enough to share a couple valuable tidbits of info with my daughter was relieved to hear that she’s not alone!

As a pediatrician and parent of teens, this has been a great resource to help me know how to approach issues that are important to teens and their families.
