Shafia Zaloom with Peggy Orenstein - Sex, Teens, and Everything in Between

Author of a teen parenting resource in conversation with Peggy Orenstein

Many American teens are steeped in a culture that sends unsettling messages about sex, through everything from politics to music to the normalization of porn.

In today’s environment, it’s crucial that teens be able to ask hard questions about how to take care of themselves, make decisions that reflect their values, and stay safe.

In Sex, Teens, and Everything in Between, veteran teen sex educator and mother of three Shafia Zaloom helps you discuss a wide variety of sex-related topics with your teen.

Shafia Zaloom is currently a Health Educator at the Urban School in San Francisco. A teacher, former coach, certified outdoor educator and administrator in the Bay Area for 25 years, she has worked with thousands of teenagers. The focus of Shafia’s work is on human development, healthy communities, ethics and social justice. She consults with other schools to create programs and leads teachers to develop and present curricula on a variety of topics.
