So many helpful episodes

I have learned so much from this podcast. I was feeling disconnected from my teens and really isolated when I found it. When the kids were little, I felt like an expert, but the teen years were so hard at first. This podcast helped so much! I especially like the expert interviews.

Simply the best!!!

These hosts! This content! It’s all so good, non-preachy, straight to the point, and incredibly useful! One of the very best resources for parents of teenagers that is out there. As someone who works with teenagers but has young children, I constantly learn things I can use in the present that I’m also so glad to know for the future. Love this show.

Great Topics & Guests

This is such a helpful podcast! I learn something with every episode, often that my teen isn’t crazy and nor am I! 😉
