BONUS: Hacks To Get Your Teen Off Of Their Phone

Does your teen trust you? And if not, how can you regain that trust? That’s the dilemma Ginni and Jo are discussing this week after getting a question from a listener who says her son won’t tell her things as he thinks they’ll be used against him.

Plus, we hear from a parent who has a list of rules around phone use for their teen, but wants to know if they’re appropriate for a 16 year old.
