Trying out for the theatre or a team. Being graded on a performance. Trying to make friends or ask someone out on a date.

Additionally, parents can actually hinder the process when they attempt to help. Stephen David Leonard joins Mighty Parenting podcast host Sandy Fowler to discuss the steps to bouncing back from rejection. They explore what’s happening, how our teens feel, and what parents can do to help our kids build resilience and develop healthy coping strategies.

I appreciate this episode as the mom of 3 boys and a girl. I noticed that you were afraid to leave the girls out of the boys podcast ... if it is about boys then the girls don't need to be mentioned or brought into the conversation. It seems to be the same problem that was being discussed...boys being compared to girls or pushed aside for girls. In a podcast about them it's ok to leave the girls out. :)
