Josh Shipp grew up in foster care and now travels the country helping teens make good decisions
A LOT CHANGES during adolescence - the brain is evolving, puberty has taken hold, and something else that's shifting is an adolescent's sphere of influence - sorry mom and dad, you're no longer the number one voice of reason. Anyone who has parented a teen knows well the communication gap that starts to widen right about middle school, but there are ways to continuing connecting.
Josh Shipp is a 30-year old teen behavior expert, author and TV show host whose work is all about "getting through to teens". He's been called "Dr. Phil for teens" and the "teen whisperer".
He shared some of his "getting through" strategies with KTD producer Sarah Gonzales on a recent one-day visit to Anchorage.
