‘My Teen Doesn’t Trust Me. Where Do I Go From Here?’

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 said he 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.
