Summer is a great time to start conversations with your teen! Use the extra time with them while they are home to get curious and ask open-ended questions.

To help, we’ve designed this series to be a quick, fun way to get everyone talking. Listen together with your teen, or by yourself. You might be surprised at how willing teenagers are to talk when they get started!

In episode 63, Karlie and Tobin talk about some of the most common stressors we hear in Support Groups and how to help teens identify healthy stress management techniques.


How much stress do you have in your life?

Talk through these with your teen after this podcast ends!

  • What causes you the most stress?
  • How are you currently handling the stress in your life?
  • How have you handled stress in a way that was helpful before?
  • What can you do to manage stress now and in the future?
  • How can I help?
