Build Your Teenager

By Erik & Michelle Lehnardt

The podcast for parents raising strong, confident teens with fewer rules and more laughter. We're Erik and Michelle Lehnardt and we've taken a deep dive into positive psychology, life coaching and brain science to bring you better, easier ways to raise great teens. We don't claim to be perfect (in fact, if you want to tell us something we've done wrong, we'll say, "You're probably right.") but we have 27 years of parenting experience and we can save you from so many missteps and mistakes. We will interview experts on the podcast, host Q&A sessions and offer exclusive coupons and big giveaways. Looking to create a joyful home and raise kind, strong, self-sufficient kids? Keep listening.
