Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Co-hosts Dr. Cara Natterson and Vannesa Kroll Bennett are articulate, warm and cover topics with a blend of humor, reassurance, and relatability. They do the necessary work of mentioning things in The Puberty Podcast that make many parents as well as their tweens and teens uncomfortable. It offers helpful tips and insights to approach puberty with information that's backed by science. Episodes can be a bit lengthy, and the casual tone of conversations can be distracting at times. Guests are experts on puberty (pediatricians, clinical psychologists, psychotherapists, authors) and offer valuable points of views, practical advice and share facts to help understand puberty and make it more enjoyable for parents and kids alike. There is a lack of more diverse representation among guests and experts.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
