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.
