Illumine for Parents: Dr Lisa Damour, Part 1

Raising adolescents can be a challenging time, and the difficult conversations that parents need to have today are markedly different from those of even ten years ago. Mobile phones, social media, and a global pandemic may well have changed these conversations with our daughters, but they remain vitally important no matter how uncomfortable they might make us as parents.

Host, Ms Jacinda Euler, discusses how to navigate and approach a variety of complex topics with your daughter, with psychologist and best-selling author, Dr Lisa Damour. In Part 1 of their conversation, they discuss conflict in friendships and ‘cancel-culture’, why most adolescents tell some untruths to their parents, and why all of this is perfectly normal.
