The life of middle and high schoolers today is not a straight path. The emotions, hormones, brain function, and circumstances are always shifting and unpredictable. So, would it be nice to help them grow predictable self-confidence?

Friendship is tricky and can be difficult at any age. Today we have created this interesting duality of “know yourself, express yourself, put yourself out there” AND simultaneously, weirdly enough, as we have become more respectful of self, we have become less respectful of others in many ways which make us want to hide. The result is not putting our real selves out there, so people are making friends with a person that isn't even you sometimes. In this episode I dive into: So how does your child find a friend? How does your child keep a friend? What are some warning signs for your child and you as a parent? How can we set them up for a lifetime of being able to make, identify and grow friendships?
