Episode details

We start by discussing if the way we parented was most influenced by societal norms or by the way our parents brought us up.

Next up was a discussion on education in 2020 and if kids have any respect for teachers. Are the teaching methods we have today fit for purpose and why are not all children included? Alice gives us an interesting insight on what education is like today.

How influential is social media on teenagers and just how damaging is it? Alice sums it all up nicely.

Finally, we found our way to the overuse of filters and the fact that people (teenagers) are unlikely to show their real selves on social media for fear of criticism.
