The Real Reason Your Teen Isn’t Leaving Their Room

This week on Help! I Have A Teenager, we hear from a parent who's concerned for their teen daughter who rarely leaves her room. Is it just a case of a moody teen, or potentially something more serious?

Plus, Ginni and Jo hear from a dad worried about the amount of time his sons are using screens, and they have a very sound piece of advice for him.
