My Teenager Is A Bully & I’m The Target

As parents, we sometimes feel deflated by our teenagers—it’s normal, but how do we teach them empathy? We dive into a question from a mum who’s feeling like the punchline of her teenager’s jokes, with dad not offering much help.

And, reintegrating a child into school after an ADHD diagnosis is tough. What steps can parents take? Ginni and Jo share some helpful ideas.
