Welcome to Parenting Today’s Teens

A daily podcast released every weekday, the Parenting Today’s Teens Podcast features Mark Gregston, a parenting expert who has worked with teens and parents for over 45 years. His wit and wisdom has been gathered through his experiences of working with struggling teens, and his practical application of his insights are “down to earth” and effective in their application.

Each day, Mark will share his understanding of teens and parenting in various formats. Twice a week, Mark shares on specific topics in discussions with sidekick, Wayne Shepherd. One day a week he’ll interview teens who are working through their issues at the Heartlight Counseling Center for Teens, where Mark and his wife live with 60 adolescents. Another day is an encouraging message from Mark to be that better parents in the role they’ve been placed. And one of the days, Mark will spend the time answering the questions you have about parenting and your teens.

Enlightening, up-to-date, practical, and something every parent would enjoy listening to. Raw at times, challenging at other times, but always hopeful to get your family to a better place in an adolescent culture that is sometimes a little contrary to what you believe and want for your teen.
