My guest this week is Michelle
Icard, an author, speaker and educator who helps kids, parents, and
teachers navigate the complicated social world of early
adolescence. Her latest book is
Fourteen Talks by Age
Fourteen, which guides
readers through the fourteen essential conversations parents need
to have with their kids before they begin high school.
Michelle is a member of the TODAY
Show parenting team, NBC News Learn, and her work has been featured
in the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, The Christian Science
Monitor, Redbook, Time, and People. Her leadership curriculum for
middle schoolers, Athena's Path, and Hero's Pursuit, have been
implemented at schools across the U.S., and her summer camp
curriculum is offered at more than 20 camps each summer.
In this episode, Michelle and I discuss the tricky stages of how to communicate effectively with teens and tweens as they navigate growth and desire more independence. Michelle shares with parents how to engage with their teens during these formative years of social and emotional changes and ways to maintain their interest while growing in respect of one another.
