    Thank you for these podcasts. I am learning so much. You’ve certainly made me think about the every day language we use and how it may affect my 16 yr old daughter. I do think we have a kind, empathetic, caring teen and that the rest will follow as she learns to develop her personal “process” and skills. As her parents, we try to be hands off but always need to check ourselves so that she can have the autonomy to learn and grow. It’s hard.
    I would love to hear a podcast on social awkwardness. This is my worry for my teen. She does not have a lot of confidence in social situations. Never has – I see her as a cautious observer. If she’s not 99% certain that she will be welcomed into a new situation then she will avoid it. Very hard for her to step out of her social comfort zone if she feels she will not get a positive reaction. I make gentle suggestions if I see an opportunity but I’m usually shot down. It’s hard to see my daughter feeling isolated and sad but yet I feel she doesn’t try to help herself either.
    Again, thank you for these great podcasts – your words of experience are truly helpful.
