Inside the Teen Mind: Exploring Homeschooling, Popularity, and
More with Leila Barker
In this fun episode, I get to have a candid conversation with my oldest daughter, Leila. She is also my office manager and head of HR in my company. We talk a little about Leila’s roles and responsibilities in my company.
We also discuss junior high school experiences, shedding light on prevalent issues like smoking and vaping among her peers. Leila shares her observations and insights with us about popularity and social dynamics from her very own perspective. We also talk about topics such as money, homeschooling, building confidence, and fostering new friendships.
We spill the beans a bit about some of the things we are planning for our next retreat and also review some things we want to do differently at this one vs. our last retreat.
