Any punk compilation that kicks off with the Undertones' "Teenage Kicks" has something going for it. While there are some curious selections that collectors may be interested in -- tunes by Tenpole Tudor, the Freshies, and Department S -- the rest are pretty much "classic" (who would've ever though that term would be used in connection with punk?) fare. Sham 69's "If the Kids Are United" is here, as are 999's "Emergency," the Dead Kennedys' "Kill the Poor," the Slits' "Typical Girls," and the mighty Sex Pistols anthem "God Save the Queen," to name a few of the 20 cuts included. This is a great party disc and a nice little intro (along with volume one) for anyone looking for a primer.
Essential listening for teenagers and their parents, as well as those who work with young adults; Teenage Kicks has teen mental health at its core, and each episode will empower young people to tackle their own problems, and give parents the guidance to know how to help them.
Helen will also be chatting about tough teenage problems like cyberbullying and self-harm, drugs, alcohol and teenage pregnancy, all with a heavy dose of reality from someone who's been there and made it through to the other side.
Modern slavery is something we hear about on the news, but don't imagine it could happen to someone we love. I was struck by a conversation on another podcast - Two Women Chatting - about an incident that had happened to one of their adult daughters that felt like a narrow escape, so I wanted to cover the topic on Teenage Kicks. Hopefully being aware of the risks will help young adults and teenagers to avoid them, as well as knowing how to help other people who might be victims.
There are already stories from fabulous guests about difficult things that happened to them as teenagers - including losing a parent, becoming a young carer, and being hospitalised with mental health problems - and how they overcame things to move on with their lives.
Please note that Helen Wills is not a medical expert, and nothing in the podcast should be taken as medical advice. If you're worried about a teenager, please seek support from a medical professional.
Sarah Wood joins me on this episode to talk about her experience of teenage acne, how she coped, how she eventually treated it, and how she's supported all of her own teenagers through the same thing.
Sarah first got acne when she was 12 and she still has it at 49. But nowadays she manages it with medication, and talks about how important it is to get the right treatment for acne if it's starting to affect your teenager's mental health.
Devorah explains how she was hospitalised with severe anxiety and PTSD as a teenager, following an assault. She says she had all the support possible, but still couldn't get past her depression and trauma. It took a \"woo-woo\" friend, who convinced her to give EFT a try, to open her eyes to her own ticket back to recovery.
Is your teen dating? As a parent that's been one of my most confusing stages as a parent - how do you give your teenager privacy when they start dating, but still keep them safe? If you've ever wondered if your child's choice of partner might be unhealthy, this episode is for you.
He gives some tips on what to look for, when not to worry, and when to get some professional support for your child's sleep problems. He also talks through some sleep tips that might help, and strategies to help your teenager feel better about their sleep and mental health.
Kellina describes how hard day to day life was as a teenager. She says that it took her Grandma to step in and tell her to get on with life for her to change her mindset to her disability and gain the motivational attitude that's served her in her professional career.
This episode is a little dose of comfort for anyone who has older teenagers and is staring in the face of a prospective empty nest. Liz and Michelle both have adult children, and have so many good things to say about their life since their kids left home for university.
Liz and Michelle have reassuring words for anyone who fears that the eyerolls teenagers throw their parents' way are here to stay. They say their relationships with their adult children have really surprised them with how rewarding they are.
The chances are, if you're a white British parent who doesn't have to use a food bank, you know much less than your teenager. And I'd wager that if you have teens, they will understand much more about bias than you do. In fact, my own teenagers have been instrumental in my own learning curve as I've discovered unconscious bias not just in myself and my family, but all around me in the world.
They hope that by listening to the book we'll all be able to notice these biases and know them for what they are. Which, quite aside from being a good thing to do, will help us understand and converse with our teenagers more easily. 2b1af7f3a8
