We know that effective communication between parent and child can promote better life satisfaction among young people. By having regular little chats, we invest in our children’s digital resilience and hopefully shape their thinking too!

In this podcast, Professor Blakemore discusses teenage behaviour, brain development during puberty, the impact of technology and the long term consequences of the COVID-19 lockdown on teenagers.
