The Freedom Moms Podcast Coaching with Crystal Noelle

S03|21 - Boosting Connection and Communication with our Teens and Tweens with Amy Kelly

Jan 17, 2022


Amy has a passion for supporting those on the front lines with teens. During her time as a middle school teacher, Amy was featured in The Washington Post and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine and served as a teacher-leader for She provides fresh ideas, strategies and resources for middle school parents and teachers.

Amy currently lives in the Dallas area with her husband, two teens, and two dogs. When she’s not working on her podcast, you can find her listening to U2, watching Gilmore Girls for the millionth time, or hanging out on the patio with her guy. Unless she’s hiding so she can finish that young adult novel she’s reading. Then, you’ll never find her.

What we talk about today:

  • Generous listening and how it differs from active listening
  • Creating open communication with our teens
  • How to use the power of story to increase communication
  • Separating what is going on with us and what is going on with our teens and tweens to up our communication skills
