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.

Insights Into Teens: Episode 62 “Q&A Series: Personality and Future Goals”

This week we kick of a Question and Answer series that we’ll be doing periodically to get back to the roots of the podcast. This series is intended to get back to our original goal of understanding the challenges and perspectives of teens through interviews and questions. This week we are asking question related to Madison’s personality and what her future goals are.

We’ll use these Q&A sessions to drive more topical discussions in later podcasts and allow us to focus more directly on certain topics that would be of interest to other teens and hopefully helpful to others as well.
