#161 Today's guest is Ann Coleman— a mom, attorney, educator, podcaster, and an advocate for parenting teens. After her son struggled with ADHD and multiple mental health disorders and behavior issues during his teen years, Ann quit practicing law to study adolescence and help other parents learn what she hadn’t known. We discuss her experiences parenting a son struggling with his mental health and how her emotions affected her parenting, advice to parents who want to understand their role in their teen’s mental health and improve their relationship with their child, what parents can do if their teen asks for help with their mental health, insights for parents who are out of ideas on how to help their teen get better, tips on how parents can maintain their mental health while their teen struggles, daily ways parents can support their teen’s mental health and prevent them from struggling in the future, and research and resources on raising teens that all parents should know about.
