Day 265: How Can Families Create A Safe Environment For Teens To Express Themselves And Thrive?


How does shame affect us and especially the teenagers? With a healthy environment, young people can be encouraged to share their shameful experiences without being judged.

Catch me and Dr. Fridah as we talk about shaming and what it can do to teens. We also share what parents can do to enable their teens communicate freely their experiences, some which are shameful.

We also had good time celebrating Dr. Frida birthday. Watch the video using the YouTube link below.
