My guest today is Dr. Anjali Ferguson.  

 

Dr. Anjali Ferguson and Casey dig deep in this episode on how to be in conversation with teens about social-political issues, including abortion.  Dr. Ferguson weighs in on if we should bring up tricky topics or wait for children to ask questions and gives tips on how to be ready for emotionally-charged topics.  They share advice on when and how to take a moment during challenging conversations and the work that’s needed to parent differently than we were parented.  Dr. Ferguson explains how to validate and hear what your teen is sharing, even when you have a difference of opinion.  Casey asks Dr. Ferguson about best practices for being open with tweens and teens, especially regarding reproductive rights.  They talk about the pros and cons of teenagers getting news and information from social media like TikTok.  Dr. Ferguson shares how Parenting Culture provides resources for and supports families of different races, faiths, and cultures to address tough topics and difficult questions.  She wraps up by speaking on openness, racial socialization, and cultural identity.
