How do our early experiences shape who we become later in life?
What do the stories we hear as children have in common?
And what does it truly mean to 'grow up'?
These are the questions, along with many more, are explored in 'Coming of Age Stories', a podcast hosted by Sarah Westgarth that's all about our childhood and adolescent development. Episodes focus on an aspect of growing up such as learning the truth about Santa, watching Sesame Street, or being taught using 'tough love.'
Our early years are a fascinating and crucial time of our life, yet are often dismissed, forgotten or even ignored entirely. By embracing our inner child, and even that embarrassing inner teenager, we can begin to understand ourselves, as well as the generation who is currently growing up.
