Guiding Teens to Adulthood: An Interview with My Daughter – 269

Listen On


In today's episode, I sat down with my almost-18-year-old daughter, who's going by the nickname “Mars” these days, for an honest chat that's filled with wisdom, laughter, and a whole lot of love.


She discusses her experience touring colleges, her thoughts about leaving home and becoming more independent, and our evolving relationship as mother and daughter.


Mars talks about making new friends and embracing social independence, and offers valuable advice for moms who may be concerned about their children's social lives in college.


This interview captures how our relationship has grown over the years and how it continues to evolve as we venture into a new stage of life together.





  • What Mars is most excited about as she transitions to adulthood and gets ready for college
  • What she's learned from me that's helped prepare her for adulthood
  • What she's most concerned about right now regarding being away from home
  • How she envisions our relationship in the future and what she looks forward to the most
