Insights Into Teens: Episode 81 “Getting To Know You Part 3”

In this third “Getting to Know You” episode we learn more about Madison through a series of questions, some of which we’ve never asked before and others are a status check on what’s changed since our last “Getting to Know You” podcast.

This session was inspired by some back to school questions Madison was answering this week. Her answers as with everything in the world today are colored by the current state of the COVID-19 crisis.

Surprising, despite the bleak outlook on the world today Madison is able to maintain a positive perspective on things. We asked a series of questions from habits and hobbies to family and friends and delve deeper into her personality. We learn a few things that even as her dad I wasn’t aware of. It was an eye opening and fun podcast this week. There are some great questions in this episode that I encourage other parents to engage their kids with, you might be pleasantly surprised at the answers you get.
