As doctors, we are very well versed in talking about bodies, puberty and sex. In the office and amongst friends, we hear parents having difficulty using correct names for body parts and explaining how babies are made. We noticed that these amazing moms and dads, out of fear for saying the wrong thing, retreated to saying nothing at all.
At Turning Teen, we strongly believe in helping parents start these conversations with their children. We aim to provide direct, informative and honest information about puberty and sexuality.
On this episode, Ramita and pediatrician Dr Lisa Klein discuss the infamously squirmish topic of teaching our children about puberty and sex. Dr. Klein shares her insights on why the topics are so difficult to address, as well as how we can use these conversations to create better bonds with growing tweens.
