Helpful Resources to Help You Have Open Conversations with Your Pre-Teens and Teens

Talking to your kids about life can be tricky. You might be worried that your teen won’t listen to you or worse, you say something that embarrasses you both. As parents, believe it or not, teens want to hear from you. They trust you and want to get your opinion on things like healthy relationships and sex.  To help you along this journey, we’ve curated a list of resources that can help you have open conversations with your pre-teens and teens because talking about sex and their lives shouldn’t be a one-time conversation.
