Hello, I‘m the former editor-in-chief of Seventeen and author
of The Real Truth about Teens and Sex, which
contains news I believe every parent needs to know:
42% of 16-year-olds know a teen who’s
had sex at home,
while a parent was at home.*
62% of 17-year-olds agree:
At my school, sex is considered pretty casual.
THE GOOD NEWS: Teenagers will
make smart choices if parents know what to say, and how
to say it.
There is a lot of practical advice in
this book (and even scripts to help get conversations started).
It's my hope that The Real Truth about Teens and
Sex will kick start a parents-of-teens revolution,
where more parents speak openly with their teens about this
difficult topic and teens increasingly make smart choices.
Thank you for visiting my site!
