NPR had a piece on Morning Edition this morning which was produced through Youth Radio. Johanna Greenberg from Portland, Maine, presents her and her friends’ experiences (or lack thereof) talking about sex with their parents.
One point I might disagree with her on: The car might be the right place for some parents to bring up sex with their kids. But when you bring it up for the first time, just make it close to the end of the trip, so there’s not the awkward post-talk silence. If there’s more to be said when you arrive at your destination, there are always more car rides to be had.
One point I couldn’t have said better: The worst talk is no talk at all.
