I am sharing a personal post I made on my private Facebook page this morning. I am doing so because it generated a lot of discussion and clearly touched on a topic parents are hungry to discuss.

The piece speaks specifically about agency and social media. I have noted in my work with adolescent clients a great deal of expression of feeling powerless and not in control of their lives when it come to social media.

intuition, it's not what you think...

Intuition in popular culture is represented as a kind of supernatural knowledge that saves us from impending doom, or as the whispering of angels on our shoulders. It's vague, tends to have negative scientific connotations and has a whiff of magic about it. So does that mean it is not real? Certainly not! Better yet everyone always already and constantly has access to it. We simply have a poor understanding of the intuitive process and how to regulate it.
