‘I Hated School. Is It Hypocritical To Make My Teen Go?’

High school can be a total nightmare for our teens. But if they're practically begging to leave school, how can we be their voice of reason? Ginni and Jo have been in the same boat with their own kids, and they've got advice to share.

Oh, and thanks to the Covid lockdowns, kids think they can be on their devices whenever they like. We hear from a parent who is looking to give their kids a reality check.
