Welcome back to another episode of our Q&A session. Today's episode we're going to talk about a couple of issues, but one thing that stood in this episode is a question about sugar and sweeteners. I know it's a hot topic and it's something you probably are asking yourself as well. So be sure to listen to the whole episode and learn some useful insights in today's questions, answered.

This is our first milestone for this podcast, and believe it or not, we've just reached our 50th episode. 

So from all of us here at the Amen Clinic, thank you for your continued support and the wonderful feedback and reviews that you've left on iTunes. 

Now to celebrate this milestone, we're joined by Dr. John Townsend, a prolific, New York Times bestselling author of almost 30 books. 

Today's topic is all about the teenage brain. It's a topic that's near and dear to us because we too have a teenager who is so special in our life. 

The problem is, in many families, these teens don't get the attention they need to prepare themselves for the future, to be the next leaders. They are left vulnerable to negative influences. 

If you're in that same boat, be sure to listen, as Dr John Townsend shares with us his expertise in helping parents raise up teens with the right boundaries.

Successful relationships are built on mutual respect of another person's boundaries and limitations. When someone encroaches another person's boundaries, it means no less than trouble. 

One of the most simple way of creating boundaries for yourself is by practicing a graceful way of saying no when you feel that it's against your principle, your health, or your well being. Unfortunately, many fall into becoming men pleasers which simply means giving up on someone's boundaries. 

Today's episode, we'll dig deeper into this topic and we'll have Dr. John Townsend, New York Times bestselling author, business consultant, leadership coach, psychologist, and author of Boundaries: When to Say Yes, When to Say No-To Take Control of Your Life.

If there's one thing that keeps people from succeeding, it's their sense of entitlement. And that's what we're going to discuss today. Why is this entitlement so detrimental to developing responsible and accountable children or employees and how are we going to tackle this societal disease.

Dr. John Townsend is a New York Times bestselling author, business consultant, leadership coach and psychologist. He has written or co-written 27 books, selling 8 million copies, including the Boundaries series; Leadership Beyond Reason; and Handling Difficult People.
