Parenting, addiction, and an understanding the adolescent mind

How many times have we heard a parent say, “I just don’t know why they would do this?” or “How could they possibly put themselves in that position?”  My son used to remind me, “we cannot make sense out of nonsense.”

Today’s guest, Lisa Frederikson, sheds a bright light on: the various components impacting a child’s psychological and emotion development; the factors that can influence or impact the risk of addiction; and, how our child’s mind evolves over time. 

Many of these concepts have been discussed and introduced to most of us, few have ever had the opportunity to have it delivered in such an organized, intellectual, and educational fashion. 

This is one podcast the parents of an adolescent child cannot miss.  Enjoy!
