Eps 27: Amy Lang talks Middle School “Dating” (YIKES)

Episode 27

Amy Lang of birdsandbeesandkids.com is back on this show and THIS time we are going next level….

We are talking about dating and middle school.

You all know that as a mother of a 13 year old, this topic is near and dear to my heart… Amy breaks it down for us, offers insights to contemplate, and may make a few of you a wee bit uncomfortable with her no-nonsense talk about what it developmentally appropriate at this age.

The result is a fun, informative and candid conversation that may take you back to your own middle school dating years…. 



Awkward boy, “Uh, do you want to go with me?”

Me, “Sure.”

My mom, “Where are you gonna GO???”


Bwahahahaaaa — listen in!!

We do talk about sex, so the show may not be one you want to play over the speakers of your car or home.


Community is everything!
