I love teenagers! As you know I used you to work with troubled teens in a variety of settings, from drug treatment centers to wilderness therapy programs.

I think to be skilled with teens requires some serious skill. That’s why I brought my friend Aaron Huey on the podcast to discuss how to deal with difficult teens.

If you are not a parent, this will still be valuable as we discuss addiction, boundaries, and enabling, all issues that come up in adult relationships too.

    The only thing that I feel isn’t being addressed here is epigenetics. That parents were conditioned by society, parents, and grandparents. Parents are not doing it on purpose and though, yeah, changes need to occur, it isn’t all – you. Some of it was inherited and possibly 3 generations. No parents want to hear where they might be “failing” – it’s important to not put it ALL on the parent.
