1. Overcoming Communication Breakdowns with Your Teen with Ruth Klein Dr. Cam 38:15

In this episode we tackle a topic that often leaves parents feeling frustrated and helpless: communication with teenagers.

Did you know that according to a recent survey, 78% of parents report feeling like they’re constantly struggling to communicate effectively with their teenagers? And it’s no wonder. Teenagers are going through a period of immense physical and emotional change, and they’re trying to figure out who they are and where they fit in the world. This can make it difficult for them to open up to their parents, even about things that are important to them.

So, how can we, as parents, encourage open and honest communication with our teenagers? Today, we’re joined by Ruth Klien, author of Conscious Connection and founder of the nonprofit Universal Mom, to discuss strategies for overcoming communication breakdowns with our teens.
