How do we as parents maintain connection with our kids while setting clear limits and guidelines? How do we manage the social pressure our 12 year old feels to get a smartphone, with our need to moderate and manage their connectivity? How can we best meet our children’s social and emotional development as they move from being children into adolescence and adulthood? On the next Line One:Your health conniction, Prentiss Pemberton and his guest will discuss the challenges parents face and give helpful tips and resources for how to best help your child if you are concerned about their physical, emotional, or mental health.

Thanks for listening!
