Really helpful

I think this is great. It does really help parents understand that they may be doing everything right but it is the way teens are wired...I hope for a little bit more what parents can actually do with this info. I wonder, should we let our teens listen to this?

MORE PLEASE

I love this podcast! There is nothing about this you can’t love.
You learn so much about so many different things, all while being able to understand little parts of yourself you may never had answers too.

Im a young mother of 2. Ages 7 & 1.
As a teenage mom, I had so much going on.
I learned so much science about depression, hyperactivity and social cues that I wish I had known back then.

This is an extremely great podcast.
5 stars for a reason!!
