To say that the pandemic has been hard on teens is clearly a massive understatement. In this episode, you’ll hear from Jaynay Johnson, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist also known as “The Teen Whisperer.” Jaynay and host Christine Koh talk about the nuanced struggles that teens currently face as they wade through the pandemic, why it’s important to help teens become emotionally responsible and well, even when their parents aren’t around, simple verbal and nonverbal ways parents can support teens right now, the importance of infusing positivity and humor into everyday life, and more.
