Oh my goodness, I haven’t posted in months! AND I stopped posting right in the middle of a conversation about virginity.
I hope everyone will understand that this was a break of necessity – of my sanity, really. I’ve been overcome with work, nothing bad at all, just too much. Among other things, I have started teaching Human Sexuality online to military members and their families in Europe, started presenting webinars for a company called Campus Outreach Services about teenagers and sex, am in the process of authoring a chapter on best practices sexuality education curricula, and yes, even more, all in addition to my middle school and college sex ed classes and consulting work! Whew!
My online classes are starting to wrap up, and I am getting ready to dive in again now that the holidays are fully over, my kids are back in school (as of yesterday), and my family has all gone home (as of tomorrow).
If you’re interested in staying in touch even when I’m not able to get to my blog, come friend me on Facebook! I post there on legal, educational, and news updates.
I will be presenting my next webinar on Thursday, January 13th, at 7pm EST, and everyone is invited to join! Here is a description of the webinar:
Digital Dilemmas: Understanding Teen Sex and Romance in a Technological World
Are adolescents discussing sex more, or have new outlets made sexual dialogue seemingly more common? Do tweens and teens understand the potential consequences of engaging in public discourse on social networking sites? How can parents understand young love in the modern realm? As cell phones become handheld computers, there is an array of possibilities to interact instantaneously. Many teenagers have easy access to each other through texting and social networks. Dr. Rayne explains current trends, describes their legal and social implications and informs parents of how to best support their teenagers as they navigate through an increasingly technological world. Understand best practices for communicating to adolescents the permanence inherent in digital interaction.

And I promise I’ll never leave for so long again! I really missed this blog.
