Let’s flip the script on parenting teens and focus on the beauty and satisfaction of this intense time. In Episode 122 of Edit Your Life, Christine interviews Dr. Ken Ginsburg, co-director of the newly formed Center for Parent and Teen Communication at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Christine and Ken bust myths and misconceptions about teen motivations and attitudes and they talk about how to help teens embrace self-determination as parents transition toward mentorship. Dr. Ken offers wise, practical advice about how parents can stay authentically connected to their teens as they ready themselves for independence and adult life.
