Supporting Your Teen's Mental Health with Jenn Curtis and Cynthia Muchnick

Teens today are stressed out, sleep-deprived, and over-committed. One of the biggest stressors for teens and their parents is preserving their relationship while navigating a competitive academic environment. Dr.Terri talks to Cynthia Clumeck Muchnick (MA) and Jenn Curtis (MSW), co-authors of the new book, "The Parent Compass: Navigating Your Teen's Wellness and Academic Journey in Today's Competitive World." The Parent Compass provides guidance on what parents' roles should be in supporting their teens' mental health as they traverse the maze of the adolescent years. Muchnick and Curtis discuss how parents can keep their relationship with their teen intact and address topics such as failure, technology/screen time, the importance of family dinner, study skills and more.
