Season 3 - Episode 41

In this week’s episode, we delve into some conversations that can be awkward if we’re not prepared, including what to do when friends or relatives comment on our kids’ changing bodies. We explore how commenting on our kids’ bodies can affect their self-image, even when we don’t intend to do so. Our guests Vanessa Kroll Bennett and Dr. Cara Natterson, hosts of The Puberty Podcast, bring their expertise and insights to the forefront, offering a fresh perspective on the challenges of navigating evolving bodies. They are co-authors of the terrific new book This Is So Awkward! Modern Puberty Explained, available here.
