Dr. John Duffy is a clinical psychologist, certified life coach, parenting and relationship expert. He joined the Bill and Wendy show to talk about the most common challenges faced by adolescents in and out of school. He says that social media, social and academic pressures, and ‘identity traffic’ make it increasingly difficult to resolve the challenges of adolescence and to forge a clear path for oneself. Thus, the increase in depression and anxiety. However, there are some clear steps parents can take to help guide their young adult children through.
