Why do so few of us look back at our middle school years with fond memories? Has this period of adolescence always been so difficult? What can we do to help our children positively navigate this time in their lives? In this episode, Hunter talks with Judith Warner, author of And Then They Stopped Talking to Me: Making Sense of Middle School, about the social and emotional challenges kids face during this period of their lives, what parents do that actually makes this time more difficult, and what we should do instead.
