In this episode of Parent24/7, our podcast series where we chat to local experts and generally interesting people about raising kids in South Africa, we unpack how local parents use the modern village to parent teenagers.

Vanessa Raphaely is the former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine and a published author, but perhaps more importantly she is currently raising four teenagers. She chats to me, Elizabeth Mamacos, editor of Parent24, about how she accidentally created her own village.

We talk about what it's like to be a parent today, what keeps us up at night, what we're doing right and whether or not teens are really that entitled.

Listen above.
