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 60, Tobin Hodges is back to talk with Chris about encouraging strength in teens and overcoming challenges.
What did you do that helped you get back up when things weren’t going well?
Talk through these with your teen after this podcast ends!

- What is a challenge you recently faced and overcame? What happened? Who was around?
- What is it about you that helps you overcome challenges?
