The pandemic has affected our society across the globe, from economics, to travel, to social behavior and interaction--we can all see and feel the differences from now to back in 2018. Most notably, we are seeing a rise in mental health issues and their physical and emotional repercussions, especially in our teenagers. Psychologist Dr. Melanie McNa…
 
Self-confidence is an important core support and driving force behind our teens' ability to move forward in building their lives; however, it's too easy for our kids to focus on their failures, to be afraid to try, to compare themselves to others and feel like they'll never measure up. Shari Medini, author and co-owner of AdoreThemParenting.com, jo…
 
The teen years can be challenging for both teens and parents. Letting our kids make more choices, do more on their own, and follow the beat of their internal drummer can be scary. And feeling them pull away to spend more time with their friends can be painful. But our teens do still need us. They need to feel loved and supported to help them throug…

We love our kids. We want them to be happy. We want to have a good relationship with them and oftentimes we believe we do. But what do we do if we find out we didn’t know them as well as we thought? What if we discover our teen is transgender—the daughter we thought we had is really a son, or the son is a daughter? This is what Paria Hassouri exper…
 
Believe it or not, our kids do love us and do still want to talk to us--even when the most common response to our questions is a put-upon sigh and an eye-roll.

Leadership. If you have a teen who has filled out college applications or scholarship applications then you know the role leadership in teens plays in higher education. Why leadership though?

What do you do when the teacher tells you your child is acting out or exhibiting other teen behavior problems? Or your teen is melting down or lighting things up at home?

We all have ideas about what addiction looks like in a person: that the outward appearance should match the inward mental and emotional state, that if you don't look and feel like you've hit rock bottom, that you can't be addicted.

Parenting teenagers is quite different from parenting toddlers and young children. We want our teens to have a successful academic journey, to be happy and healthy.

Confidence is a skill. Our human nature makes it so easy for us to let life experiences chip away at any confidence we've built. We often focus on the negative and put ourselves down to a level we would never let our friends sink to. Ceri Payne is speaking with us today about some really practical ways that we can practice confidence. If you are af…

Step 4 of Spiritual Surrender Some grief is heavier than other grief. Sometimes it moves through you and sometimes it just gets stuck and you carry it.

Grief is not something to avoid or run away f…
