Do I Put My Kid On ADHD Medication?

The decision to put your child on medication for ADHD is a very personal one. But what do you do if you and your partner don't agree on it? Ginni and Jo have some advice on how to work through this discussion together, so you can make the right choice for your teen.

Plus, we hear from a mum who has itchy feet and wants to move overseas, but is unsure if it's the right move for her teenagers.
