'How Do I Get My Parents To Understand Me?'

This week, we have a first: our first ever question from a teen. They listen to the show to understand their parents better, and now they want some advice on how to get their mum to understand them. It's a question every parent of a teen should hear.

Plus, we hear from a mum whose teen is using their ADHD diagnosis to get out of things they don't want to do. So how do they handle this delicate situation?
